Default Stump Removal

Is a ripper the best tool for stumps ?can you prise against the back of the ripper like you can with a bucket ?

I have always just used the narrow bucket - but I am needing to remove stumps more and more often as I manage to pick up forestry work .....is a ripper significantly quicker and easier on the machine ?

Cheers for any advice

best way is ripper and bucket both as a combo, dig round stump best you can with a bucket, then swap to ripper and bust out as many roots as you can, then back to bucket to pull stump and tap root.

theres a knife like tool that will chip away at roots but like a grinder it leaves a lot of it in the ground

Hawkfork ? Ill have a google.

If its an odd one for a customer we might leave a bit as lever but these are harvested so thats not an option

Re a knife type setup...... I cant leave anything in ground as it is where tracks are going and usually cut and fill.
