There is always the ol' tried and true, time tested method and it works every time. It's called a grubbing hoe and ax. Grub it out and cut off the tap root and no more mesquite. It's a bit labor intensive though.

I might see if I can buy or build an attachment for doing that. And bolt it onto the bucket on my 1900.

You are going to need just a bit more tractor I bet except for little bitty bushes.. There is already a gadget to do that but it takes a track hoe to operate it. It's very efficient and fast. Just grab them and rip them out of the ground. There was a bunch of pasture cleared around here several years ago that way and no bushes have returned.

They pulled up the whole thing? Would a backhoe work? I agree, that's a bit much for my Ford.
It's runs the brush hog ok, but when you hit those bigger ones it's to much.

And they mess up my tires, that crap didn't phase that Challenger. I wish I had one of those they are cool
looking.

**** yes, I would drive it into town just to pick up my mail. I've always thought that to be a cool tractor.
