I have one of those. I use it to pull trees down to about an inch and a half. Works pretty good if you can get a bite.

They make a gizmo of chains for smaller brush and hand operated devices for really small trees.

Here is how I pull trees. This will pull out 1 inch tree or larger.Hook to your drawbar with clevis. I also feed chain through an old golf cart tire as a mid weight in case of snapped chain. No need for another guy on the ground but it sure saves a lot of time if you have a couple hundred to pull. Cost zero.

Careful that the pole doesn"t dig in the dirt on the leading end and the back end coming up smacking you in the back of the head. Ohhhhhh!

Yes Walt, you are right! I worked with a man whose grandfather was killed like that. He unhooked one chain on a harrow evener pole so he could drag it through a gate. The front end caught on a tree root, and it flipped up and got him.

I'm thinking of a 20 foot chain, and a 10 foot pole for my experiment. It wouldn't work in Glennster's orchard. . .

I've been wondering how those things worked.

In the most recent issue of Farm Show, a guy told of dragging a pole behind him on a long chain. I think he had the chain hooked about a foot or so behind the end of the pole, and he would circle the sprout to catch it in the vee between the chain hookup and the pole. He said that after getting it pulled, he could circle in the opposite direction and it would unhook by itself. I'm skeptical, but there's a piece of a broken power pole laying in the edge of the pasture, and I'm gonna have to try it. Probably just strip the limbs from the sprout, but who knows til it's tried? I especially like the idea of not having to climb on and off of the tractor a hundred times. The slip ring idea works - I used my long furnace poker to get the chain in position under the limbs around the sprout, but again, it's on and off and on and off the tractor.

I'd be interested to get your report on how it works, Glennster. Got an old one myself, but find it's often more of a pain than it's worth to use due to it not wanting to hold tightly enough, or stay secured long enough for me to get back in the tractor seat and tighten it up, or the chains (the arms are connected by chains, not a linkage like yours has) will tangle and it won't tighten up properly. For most things, I just use a chain with a choke ring, but there's times one of those would come in handy if it works. What do you plan on using it on?

Please include a pic of the smallest tree you can remove. I can get the bigger ones with a chain or hoe. It's the small one that's too big to pull by hand and too close to something to dig out with a shovel that I want to get rid of. George

will do george. same problem here, the big ones are easy to get out, its the smaller ones that you cant chain up, or they are too close to something. i am getting mulberry trees growing inside the fences around my fruit trees, and this should be the ticket to pluck em out. i 'll get some pics this weekend. swmbo is gonna run the skidder for me while i hook em up.
