It"s usually pretty easy, Bruce, or at least any carpet that I"ve removed was - as long as nothing was glued down!

You"ll also need to remove the tack strip, which is tedious, but no problem. (Flat bar works pretty good.)

There"s really no need to find/cut the seams, unless you need to make the pieces of carpet small enough to handle - just roll it up and drag it out.

What"s underneath the carpet, and what are you going to replace the carpet with?

Particle board underneath it. The plan is to replace it w/ wood. Hardwood or laminate. If it's going to be hardwood, then the particle board will need to come up as well.

Sounds good, Bruce.

If you know up front that the particle board is coming out, you won't need to be any too careful when you're removing the tack strip and the staples in the pad, as Dan mentioned above.

If you do end up removing the particle board: I just recently helped tear some out, and a combination of moisture and the breakdown of the binders in the particle board had basically glued it to the subfloor! (That was a volunteer community project.)

Good Luck.

A personal note: I usually don't weigh in on OT threads, and especially on the N Board (I have a Ferguson TO-20), but this is the first time I've ever had anything semi-meaningful to contribute on a topic, tractor-related or otherwise!
