Tree Spade - 3-pt Hitch (Lift-Mast)
One late night of late surfing I came across an interesting 3 point hitch (it may have even been I-Match compatible) implement that touted the ability to remove sapling sized trees up to 4" in diameter, simply by backing into the tree in question, the teeth closed around the tree and you drove away with it, roots and all (obviously with great care and scrutiny). I KNEW I should have book marked it.
Now for the life of me I can't find it again or even remember what it was called! Can anyone help?
I have quite a few smaller trees that I will be removing and think this would be a great approach, as it would negate the need to remove a ton of tiny stumps a chainsaw would leave.
Am I over thinking things, would a log chain tied to the draw bar be the equivalent?
On another note, it's good to see so many log splitter threads, I'm sure that my back will only last for so long, and I'll need to purchase a good splitter in the near future. However, I only split about 2 cords of wood per season by hand, so my need isn't that strong...yet.
