Default Tree / Post Puller

Building another skid steer loader attachment...well, 2 of them. I have been wanting a heavy duty tree puller to deal with the heusatch/ huisache trees that spring up around here, and some mesquites. Figure it should handle decent size cedars as well. One of my neighbors hired me to build him one at the same time, so figured I'd share the saga with anyone who wants to build one.

Parts:
- 2x4x .25 wall rectangle tubing for the quick attach frames
- 1/2"x 1.5" for the top bar of the Q/A
- 3/8" x 3" for the bottom pin-plates of the Q/A
- 3x3x .25 wall square tubing for the arms/ pinchers
- 2x2x .25 wall for the supports
- Hydraulic cylinder is a 3" bore x 6" stroke. Most of the ones I have seen/research are 2"x8"...I want more gripping power and I purchased the 6" stroke cylinders surplus, so I'll just mount them in such a way we still have appropriate swing.

This one will be my main inspiration, but probably with double jaws to prevent cutting.
