Anybody ever tried pulling up stumps with the Brutus? And does anybody have the grapple?

I've got a couple mid-sized (maybe a foot across at ground level, 120 pounds with the roots and dirt) stumps I need to get out of the ground. I can chop them free of the root system with my trusty sawzall, but need to get them up and out of the ground.

I don't trust the hitch mount to hold up for yanking them out (like I would with my old jeep), so I'm thinking about using the "material bucket" and a chain to try to shift it slowly like you would with a full-size bobcat.

They need to make one of these for the Brutus:

I don't think this will happen with the current product...since it has a lift limit of 500 lbs...jerking a stump out would far exceed the arm capacity...:(

I've seen people bend hydraulic rods on "small backhoes" attached to compact utility tractors trying to move stump balls...
