:confuse:I have many big stones in my yard and its a pain having to cut around them all the time and of course some are just low enough that you can cut over top of them but still at times the mower blades like to rattle on them.Decided to make these forks to try and dig some of them out and to my surprise they work great.The other surprise was the size of them that this tractor can handle.By the way these forks fit onto the MF 1655 as well just need to put a couple of spacer's between the bucket and the forks frame.:laughingteeth:Larry

That looks like it works great! Fun to see how big some of them rocks are under the ground!

How about a stick of TNT [LOL] really if the stones to big just leave it be and add some dirt around it and make a mound,it'll look like a golf course in your yard.Another option is use a bigger tractor or call in some one with a bigger machine that can do the work.Larry
