This video is dramatic and amusing. Enjoy. But I'm posting this as a PSA for range safety when working with systems that can store serious energy in the cordage. Shown is my stump pulling system. It is a 42:1 compound block and tackle sized to deliver 20T to the stump using a modest size pulling vehicle. I've done about a dozen stumps with this rig and, in all prior cases, the stump tips over slowly, inch by inch, and grudgingly crawls out of its crater carrying a dirtball about the size of Montana.
