Hi 

Why not just get a 2.7 tonner legal weight to tow and far greater lifting capacity if buying second hand there isn't much difference in price and you'd maybe be better off with a grab rotator for the extra few quid makes moving materials easier you'd be better off posting in show us your arb diggers and Stephen Blair or LGP Eddie will be able to give you all the advice you need

Get a screw splitter head too and then you can do stumps. K
