PT Cruiser vs Stump
 
3 Attachment(s)
So I'm doing some gardening, ripping old freeze destroyed bushes out, putting new bushes in. Everything was going great until we got to the rose bush from he**. Despite our best efforts, it was too deeply rooted for mere mortals to dislodge. Two broken shovels and several shots of Jack Daniels later and after much wailing and nashing of teeth, wala, an idea! Let's use the PT Cruiser to pull the stump. :eek:

A quick review of the owners manual revealed nothing on stump pulling procedures. If a Silverado 4x4 can do it, so can we we figured (that was probably the Jack Daniels talking I think). Ok, hook up the tie downs, put the wife at the wheel and let her rip (the Cruiser that is). After two unsuccessful pulls done in Drive, the third low grear pull did the job.

Ok, granted it was a very small stump, but got to wonder how many other PT Cruisers can claim to be "stump pullers" which BTW is her new nickname.:1st:

Glad you got it out but I sure thought this story was gonna end differently with pictures of the PT's bumper laying on the ground tied to the stump which was still planted in the ground. :D

Wow, I'm totally stumped over this one. I would never have thought use my PT like that. Guess if I got in a log jam, I'd consider stumping around in my PT... consider, but not likely to take action....lmao....

Tied the tiedowns around the rear axle, elected not to film it in case the insurance company wanted to know how it the rear axle departed the car..................:o

wouldn't ue the axle next time, the 'frame' has built in areas for tie downs,
might be reinforced.

We'd use our old van as a skidder, it worked very well.

Not to say anythings deficient w/ the PT, but it's not a truck, just as much
as the van wasn't a skidder

I would have just covered the "stump" with one of those hollow plastic look-like boulders ....
