Fence is actually straight (I looked!) but for some reason they've cut a panel down at an angle

All done. Two and a half hours from loading to unloading, including cutting down the stumps. They were (of course) much larger than they looked in the picture… 🤣

I quickly gave up ‘driving’ the tractor, and instead operated it from the side with the handbrake gently on which afforded me a decent view and a fair degree of cover (see pic) Wouldn’t want to be using it all day but ideal as a relatively profitable add-on, as most of my tree work is large gardens. The grinder cost less than £2k. 

Id say you definitely want a hydrostatic tractor for this. Stalled it twice in case you were wondering (and let’s face it, you probably were!)

Didnt mean to post the digger pic but there’s a laugh.
