Brush Grubber Xtreme Plus, Model# BG-20
Just works well! Is heavy but after a few stumps I figured it out where I let the weight of the device do the work for me. Does not work well on anything under 2", just rips it apart.

BG - 20
I haven't actually used the product as it arrived with a broken spring. I contacted the manufacturer to obtain a new spring. Customer service is none existent! I was treated as if I broke it and I had to buy a new spring. When I explained further what happened I was told that they "Will review with the team." Two weeks and no reply. NORTHERN TOOL sent a call tag and they are going to send a replacement BG-20, not just a spring. I had planned to buy one of the smaller units in addition to this one, but I can't recommend Brush Grubber due to their poor customer service.

BRUSHGRUBBER CAN DO IT !
This tool has done everything I have asked it to. Fun to use. No complaints. I was excited to tell my friends how well it worked. It grabbed the stumps easily & it was also easy to release the stump when I was done. Great design.

Brush Grabber Xtreme Plus
This device works like a champ. I chained it up to my pickup and pulled out several large bushes and shrubs. It is a heavy duty piece of equipment that is beefy enough to last a long time. I would have no problem attaching this to a tractor to pull out larger shallow rooted trees and brush. The chain shackle loop is large enough to pass logging chains through it.

Solid hunk of metal, have a good chain.
This thing is solid. I popped an old but pretty heavy duty log chain using this with my 4x4 pickup and low gear. Get a heavy chain for this thing.

Brush grubber extreme lives up to expectations
I ordered the brush grubber extreme a couple months ago and have used it to pull brush and up to 8" osage orange trees -- the tree was large enough that the grubber would barely fit arount it. It is solidly built and handled everything I hooked up to my 70 horse tractor with no problem. I will be using it some more this summer, we'll see how the dry soil imacts the performance. I believe the more moisture in the soil, the better it will work, so spring conditions are probably best. It is heavy, but that is necessary due to it's purpose. I recommend the brush grubber extreme to anyone who has brush and smaller trees they want to get out of the ground roots and all.

Xtreme Plus Brush Grabber
Very well built, but therefore it has to be heavy, which it is.
This one is specifically for larger stumps up to 6", but don't buy this one to pull out smaller bushes, because the the teeth are too big and to far apart for a smaller bush.
However, this tools works very well for the purpose intended, and for the right sized stump.

SOUTH TX USE
This product will not pull mesquite. I attempted to up root a small mesquite tree with this product attached to my 110 HP John Deere tractor. It only shredded the top off and did not pull the root out.

Xtreme Plus is excellent buy
We purchased this tool a year ago from NT, and use it frequently clearing our land of alder-bushes, cut roots, trees, & you-name-it, it hauls it. We use it on a CAT backhoe chain and also attached to chains on ATV's. We have hauled 30' & 50' cut pines, up to about 18" diameter out of thick woods using this tool, sometimes just to see what it can't haul. Even if a tree trunk appears too wide, just get a bite into the bark of a bit of the circumference, and you are in business. It's heavy-duty, takes a beating (being run over by the CAT several times now) and really is our most versatile tool for hauling out wood, roots, and much more. Highly recommend for land clearing, firewood hauling, tree pulling; if you don't have a skidder, this is the tool for you.

First, let me say this piece of equipment is a beast. The photo does not do it justice. It is one heavy duty piece of iron. I adapted my drawbar with a six foot piece of heavy chain and went from there. I had pre-cut almost 100 4-8 inch aspen trees in anticipation of it's arrival. It attached to large and small stumps with no problem, but I must say it was a workout. The grubber is large and heavy, but suited for the job at hand. So far it has worked flawlessly, gripping each stump very well. I am glad I bought it and will be clearing many more trees with it.
