3 Pt Mounted Brush Puller
"The only other machine on the market that can do what this will do is a bull-dozer," says Walter Herbrich, Houston, Tex., who built a 3-pt. brush puller that'll handle trees and brush up to 3 in. in dia.
The puller is powered by a hydraulic cylinder operated by an auxilliary four-way valve, which opens and closes the pointed jaws to about 4 in. "To operate, I back the tractor up to the tree, clamp the jaws onto it, and lift as I drive the tractor forward. It pulls the roots and all," says Herbrich, noting that the operator needs some type of protection behind and above him. He's used the brush puller for 8 years, primarily to pull Youpon bushes, and has had no problems.
