If you've got a petrol cut off saw (stihl saw) get a terrasaur blade, about £100

 

 

 

 

Got one. Still can't get a disc cutter more than 8 inches in a hole.

This looks promising, ive been looking at a tool that cuts big roots in post holes without blunting, size (12in) is a slight problem but I see they also make a 9in, maybe someone makes a 4in?.

it does look promising - turns out you can get smaller ones, they are called  carbide cluster blades from other manufacturers, maybe this 115mm one on a grinder would be useless, surely you need one on a nine inch grinder if its a thick root?

Generally, the deeper you go, the thinner the roots, so a grafting spade chops most, and the terrasaw blade does the others

I use one of these. Invaluable for hard clay, sharpen to cut roots (works like an axe) and splits concrete on jobs where it's not worth bringing the hydraulic breaker. I normally dig with a straight shaft grafter/rabbiting spade but near trees and in hard stony ground and dry clay this chissel and the shoveholers will do the job no problem.
