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

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.

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

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Then I drill holes in the stump and apply more round-up. I had one big one that took four years to get rid of this way.
