 Clearing trees

I need advice on how to clear small 1" to 3" clumps of trees (tag alder) from an overgrown field that I want to reclaim to plant Christmas trees. I know I could just cut the trees, but was wondering if the loader on my NH tc29 would be capable of pulling the trees out by the root? Would teeth on the bucket help? I'd sure like to hear if anybody's got any experience doing this. My tractor isn't supposed to be delivered until mid April (I ordered it in early Mar.), so all I can do is mental gymnastics untill then! Thanks.

i have tried what you are suggesting without luck, i have a NH 1520 with loader could not pull them out, so i just brush hogged them, works much faster, lift the mower all the way up and back into the brush and drop the mower on the piles of brush, clears them out fast, if you want to pull them out you may need a smal dozer to do that. that is what the farmers use around here, "if you dont brush hog in the spring, you will chainsaw in the fall". so they say.



good luck

We do this on a regular basis using an attachment called a "Brush-Brute" to do it. It is a set of teeth that go on IN PLACE of your FEL bucket. It will remove anything from 1/4" up to 4" in diameter, without the operator having to leave his seat. I'm not sure where you are located, but the manufacturer is (reasonably) local to me, I can find a dealer near you if you wish. Best of luck.

Murf, the Brush Brute sounds interesting. Does this allow the tractor to "bulldoze" the trees out? I'm located in Wisconsin. Thanks.

It does not 'bulldoze' them out, they get 'wedged' between the teeth and the loader then rips them up out of the ground so they can be carried away and dumped out, no stump, no regrowth. I will find out where a dealer may be near you and e-mail you more detailed info if you want.

Murf,

Sounds like something I might be interested in as well. I have quite a few stumps in the 4"-8" range I would like to remove. I have a Kubota L3710 that can pull them out with a little ingenuity, but it seems like it is really hard on the tractor. I have been looking for something that would be easier on the tractor and my pasture as well. A picture would be outstanding if you could possibly find one. Thanks for the help.

Brian

Murf,

One more thing.....I am in Colorado. Also, I know you said it will only pull out up to 4" stumps, I can live with that. I will just have to keep plugging away at the bigger ones in another fashion. Thanks again.

Brian

Murf, yes I'm interested. If it's not to much trouble could you e-mail me the address of a dealer or post it here? I think it would work slick on my tag alders. Thanks again.

The Brush brute is manufactured by a small 'mom & pop' operation (the farmer who invented it and his wife actually) so they do not have a website, however I will glady send info. to anyone who contacts me.
