Brush Grubber Heavy-Duty Shrub/Clump Grubber, Model# BG19
Great brush removal tool
This product works great and pulls brush, blackberry briars, and small trees really well. I have used it extensively this spring without any problems.

Bought this in hopes it would help reduce my amazon of a front & back yard. Physically it had the right idea but I still had my doubts. Now. What I was pulling out was nothing magnificent but substantial enough that I didn't want to spend the day digging. Eventually, when I went around to the front I tried it on a rats nest of a bush, no leaves yet thank god, and it yanked it out pretty good. Smaller stuff needs to have it wrapped appropriately for it to work, but work it did.
Worth the money. just get it.

brush grubber #177019-2301
the day I got it I started pulling brush out of my back yard. It works awesome pulled brush out like it wasn't even there. If you have land you need to clear, this is the tool for you.

Have been using to rip out large bougenvilla roots. Heavy duty, cleats on chains help grip good.
So far it's held up, although I haven't hooked it up to my pickup and really put some stress on it!

Useful, but not perfect
The clump grubber is a useful chain, but not perfect in pulling rooted plants. Photos in the product ad would lead you to believe that by wrapping the chain around the base of a clump, you can expect to extract the the clump successfully. We tried it on several willow clumps around a small pond, but found it would strip over the bush. Even with digging around the base of the roots, we did not have complete root removal. Buyers should be aware of the limitations and expect to still do a fair amount of digging and re-attaching of the grubber chain. I believe the grubber chain is better than a traditional log chain, but it is far from perfect in actual use.

MUCH BIGGER than image suggests!
I have a BG08 Heavy Duty brush puller (which is a wonderful product) but wanted something smaller to work with saplings and hedgerow brush that sprouts around the farm, that are too small to really use the BG08 on.
Based on the product image shown for this BG19 it looked perfect to meet my needs where the similar BG16 choke-chain looked a bit too small.
Was I ever shocked when I opened this BG19 box and found a mammoth chain! Way too big for my intended use of small brush pulling. The product appears very sturdy and well built, and I have little doubt it will do the job, but I already have the functionally equivalent BG08 puller and don't need 2 similar items.
The product image with this item should show its size in a better fashion. The little brush stalks it is wrapped around look pencil thin when they must be much larger. Perhaps having a hand in the picture for perspective would help!

brushgrubber does not grab
What a hunk of junk. Purchased this a couple of months ago with intent of pulling some brush around our property. Almost impossible to get 6ft. around clumps with teeth facing towards brush. Then when you pull, it slides right over the top leaving a barkless clump of brush still standing. I found its faster to cut brush at ground level with clippers or a chainsaw and use a shovel to dig it out.

Buy the other one!
I bought both this unit and the BG-08 and I find that the BG-08 is the one that always works. I am not saying that the BG19 doesn't have it usefullness but the BG08 should be your main tool for pulling small to medium bushes / stumps.
I use the BG08 off the back of my John Deere 420 and it rocks...

A must have for any tractor owner!
This is an essential tool to keep close to your tractor. For clearing and moving logs,stumps,brush,or anything you can get it around there is nothing better. Teeth on the chains grip the object to be moved preventing slippage. End rings are different sized so one fits through the other to form a noose around object to be pulled. Saves time!!
