Winch Stump Pulling

Can you pull pine stumps out with a winch, or will the stump just pull the Jeep towards the stump? Inquiring minds want to know.

x2, use a snatch block and steer clear of the cable. Doesn't take much of a stump to make a hellacious load.

If your jeep starts looking like a limo ease off a little, and chop on some of the roots on the far side and pull a little. Pine tree roots are near the top and easy to cut. Put a blanket on the cable in case the shit hits the fan. ( so the shit don't hit your fan)

Ive pulled some stumps in my back yard before using a 8000lb winch, snatch block and strapping the jeep to another tree. Worked well for the stumps that had been there awhile, still waiting on some of them to die off enough to pull out.

Use a synthetic rope and the danger level will drop significantly.

I'll 2nd the motion to use a snatch block and anchor your Jeep to something sturdy.

Have fun.

Stumps are hell, period. It depends on the size and age. I have pushed out many trees with my dozer (20K lbs.) if you have some leverage using the tree. If the stump is cut off closer than 2 foot from the ground you better just dig it out.

A 5k lb. jeep and an electric recreational winch is not going to do anything to a new stump more than 8 inches wide.

This ^^^^^ is true. All the ones I pulled were cut off about 4-5 feet from the ground and were old.

x3 on the snatch block, you get twice the pulling power when you use this and attach the hook to your jeep. Plus, through a towel over the cable so it doesn't snap back and hit the jeep or anybody else for that matter. Your winch will love you, cause it won't work as hard as if you were doing a straight pull.

And, your going to have to dig around the stump and cuts some re-leaf cuts in the roots.

I pulled out some 20 stumps in one day with my dads truck and ATV with no winch by doing the re-leaf cuts.
