Allis Chalmers dozer takes down a massive tree.

When you need to remove a big tree without an excavator, tree pusher, or tilt blade, this is how you go about it. I believe this tree is a Burr Oak It was 4-5 ft in diameter and had a huge canopy (50+ ft) that stretched out into our field blocking equipment and sucking up nutrients. Even a large dozer like this (45k lbs) can only push over trees up to a certain size, after that, you need to dig around them to break the roots and then pile up dirt on one side to create a ramp for leverage. Even then I could only get within 3-4 feet around the tree so the root ball is huge. 1952 Allis Chalmers HD20 Torque converter drive. 6-110 detroit diesel
