Mick Dundee nailed this together for me ( yes its blue), it would tear them out no problem. There must be someone about with a monkey winch or similar , might pay to get on the phone.

Don't you know someone with a tractor mounted winch; I would expect to pull out 8" conifer stumps as fast as my mate could be wrapping a choke chain around the next one. If I can't get a machine or redirect a rope in; an ordinary 5 ton ratchet strap can get some pull on matched with a root busting bar (as described earlier), I forged a blade on a 6ft piece of 1 1/8" round bar.

Above would be a good idea, even if u can't get the tractor that near u could redirect it off the trees u were going to pull off anyway. A proper PTO driven winch would be ripping them out in no time.

Plus as a bonus it would be pulling the stumps right to ur access? so u just got to chuck them on a trailer after that so no hand balling them down the garden

But ur winch vehicle doesn't need to be anywhere near, as long as u have some anchor points to to attach blocks redirect the cable. Even using a ground anchor if needed to redirect will still be far easier and quickier

 

Winching out by hand will be a lot of work and time consuming.

Lifted a few strainers out with hi lift jacks and there a freat tool but still fiddly and u still need to do a far bit of digging/pinching to slacken them. If u use a hi lit jack take a flat block to usr as a base as it often will sink into the ground when u get some pressure on.

So u can't get a tractor within 50m? or even 100m or more, depending on the winch set up but the PTO winches could have well over 100m of cable on some.

Sorry to keep going over the point but the tractor can be a long way away and doesn't need to be anywhere near the banking

With no pictures and information coming piece-meal would it not be best to call some contractors to come and see for themselves and give you some prices and maybe some ideas! We're all guessing, but good luck with it.:confused1:
