    I am not sure up-hill would have made a difference they way it shot off.

    Z drag or snatch block rig it and you wont ever hit your vehicle. Never pull like that straight from the piece. Saw a winch cable cut the top off a deuce and a half when the cable broke during reforger in 1989. He got off light only busting a window.

    Further proof that there will never be a shortage of stupid on planet earth.

    Spend a few minutes exposing the far side of the roots and cut the feeders. Notch stump, cable and tug. Stump will hinge and lift without launching. Done it a thousand times.

    actions have consequences, who knew?

    It would have been cheaper to hire a stump grinder, and a lot easier on his differential.

    Someone failed their high school physics classes. Something under a
    lot of tension can become a missile once it breaks loose!

    One of the funniest industrial accidents I ever heard of involved a coworker
    of mine. He was on a field job working on a cooling tower. The gearbox is
    horizontal input – Vertical output. The output shaft has a hub with what looks
    like large propeller blades. He chased the threads at the top of the shaft and
    inserted an eye-bolt.

    All went well until the wind caught the blades and started unscrewing itself
    from the eye-bolt. Imagine a few tons of steel falling from 3-4 stories up.

    Bob ended up with a new nickname after that: Helicopter Bob.

    He did get on the ground in record time though!
