Forum Members,
Will be traveling north Wednesday and plan to use the '65 HD3 to remove and stack 20 foot alder brush from an old farm field. Am a novice using the 6 way blade and wonder what would be a good approach to do it quickly and safely. Any and all thoughts welcome. Mr. T. Minnesota

Given its alder and you said this has a 6 way, you may be able to favor the corners of the blade at full tilt and angle to uproot those, but don't take it too far if they resist, you should be able to feel your way through on that. If they pop easily, that should work. If you just use the blade flat, you may just knock em over, make a mess on top, well probably not too bad, worse is gouging craters all over, mixing good soil with wood, brush etc. piles everywhere. I'd suggest the blade corners first, see what happens. Could be a lot of turning and aligning with tractor, sort of why an excavator shines for this, but as most of us do, use what you have as best you can LOL !

When removing alder brush on my property with my T-180 bobcat, I found it popped out of the ground easily when you shoot for the base, and lift the bucket when it bogs down. Didn't need to dig down much at all. Made a nice field in no time, limed, fertilized and seeded a wildlife mix of rape and clover, took great. Found that alder brush is pretty wimpy, you can clear a lot in no time.
