Default ATC Vs. Bush



This guy had the right idea- put your wife on the front of your ATC and use it like a mini tractor to get rid of a bush. Though one gets the feeling it didn't end the way he had planned:

His counter-weight was heavy enough but he needed a 4x4 and that still might not do it.

I used my ATV winch to pull a small bushy tree out and used my full-size truck's trailer hitch as an anchor. It pulled the back of my truck sideways. I had to do some digging and root chopping to winch it out.

I recently pulled a few small trees out with my truck. One was about the same diameter as my finger, all the way down to where I cut it off last year, and the year before. The stump was about 3 inches around. When I pulled it out the taproot broke off a bit over 39 inches, a full meter, below the surface. I have no idea how deep the end was but I'd guess it was around 5 feet.

I'm still trying to figure out how he asked her to do that.

"Honey, I need a nice heavy weight for the front of the trike. You busy?"

Some might call that adding a wench to the front of there machine, rather than using a winch!
