    Yep!!!, these were rooted in very well... I gotta say though flipping the bucket around worked great for that 3rd stump as I couldn't really get at it from the waterline side. Once I got the bulk of dirt out from underneath it went like a lamb ;)

    Well... bad news.. got back to the shop today and was told my plate for the 60 24inch bucket broke :( all the guy was doing was digging some post holes...

    It's bent up almost an inch too so I'm guessing after it broke he didn't want to pull it off and was doing some good backpushing... so I'll have to cut it off the left tooth as well as bevel and fill the break...

    Suggestion - Leave something "fusible" in the assembly when you're done.
    You know darn well that if you try to make it idiot-proof Darwin will only come along with an improved class of idiot.........

    Yep, I know ;) It's just hard to get around my 'programming' to make something harder to break the next time... so then they break the next link in the chain.. ;)
