We were burning the tops and branches in the hole from the last stump. Those big ass stumps will sit there for a while to dry.

Took until today to get the first stump mostly gone. I’ll probably roll stump three in later today.

I should rename this thread to “Shop build dream thread!”

Idk where your renting from but herc will rent 80,000 lb machine with nothing more than a credit card
CCE. They are actually out of NC. I think he said this was a 9k lb machine. I’d hate to see the cost on an 80k machine. And the delivery charge.

A lot of people asked why I got a 12.5k mini ex...but I'm glad I did. I rarely ever wished it was smaller and most people wanted me to dig stumps it seemed like.

Damn, I can't wait to get another one. Bet your ass it'll have an enclosed cab and AC though!

Believe me when I say I’ve been looking. I want one. As much as I want to do here it makes sense to me. I was thinking of starting a “heavy equipment deals” thread to get y’all’s advice.

I like Equipment Trade and Machinery Trader. I just keep looking for one within driving distance for a reasonable price that looks like it's in good shape and doesn't have a million hours on it.

Only way you are going to burn those without a 20ft pile of timber is with a couple hundred gallons of diesel and oil.
And like others said, looks to be a 3.5 tonne machine, see if they've got a 5 or 6 next time would cut your work in half, imagine your having fun though

It’s actually burning good. The rotten pine stump has been good fuel actually. I’ve put a couple large roots that are almost fat lighter under it.
