Skid Steer Stump Remover
Linus Huerter’s stump bucket turns a skid loader into a powerful stump removal machine. The owner of HSB Welding and Fabrication in Seneca, Kan., started fabricating it in 2014 along with a backhoe attachment.
  “The stump bucket is built heavy and the bucket teeth help get it into the ground,” Huerter says. By cutting into the stump from all sides, it’s effective on even big stumps, and the serrated sides tear out roots. It also works great to take down smaller live trees. The bucket fits on all model skid loaders with quick-attach fittings. It gets the job done on all sizes, Huerter says. It just takes longer with smaller skid loaders than larger ones.
  Besides removing stumps, the $950 stump bucket is long enough to do shallow trenching to about 2 ft. deep.
  For deeper trenches Huerter sells his simply designed quick-attach backhoe for $1,250. The 12-in. bucket digs down to 6 ft. It comes with a cylinder to hook up to the skid loader’s auxiliary hydraulics.
  Huerter uses 1/2-in steel so the attachments will last for years. Most customers live in the area and use them to expand cropland and clean up tree lines, he says.
