Stump Bucket for Tractors GWT Heavy Duty Stump Wrecker



Stump Buckets for tractors are the perfect example of work smarter, not harder. Gone are the days of using a shovel and axe to remove your stumps over the course of hours. Instead let your tractor do all of the work with a front-end loader stump bucket.

We have two to choose from—the Mini and the Heavy Duty. The Mini is for smaller compact and subcompact tractors under 32 horsepower. But who should buy our heavy duty stump bucket?

If your tractor sits between 32 and 60 hp and you’ve got to dig up stumps, saplings, small trees, or boulders, or want to plant new shrubs or trees, or make a shallow trench, then consider our Made in USA Heavy Duty Stump Wrecker. An attachment for your front-end loader with bi-directional ripping teeth to cut through roots, and a chain slot to secure your stump to the bucket in case you need to haul it across your property after removal. The HD Stump Wrecker is the big brother to our Mini Stump Wrecker.

Specially designed and tested serrated bi-directional teeth make up the shovel edges to rip and sever roots while driving forward and backwards as you dig. A beefy 3/8″ AR400 steel cutting edge acts as the sacrificial first contact point between your tractor and whatever you’re going after. It’s replaceable by design as we know it’s going to take the majority of the brunt getting that stump out of the ground.

Customers continue to amaze us with the size of stumps they remove with our stump bucket. Watch us absolutely annihilate small trees with the GWT HD Stump Wrecker in the videos below.

This is the big brother (roughly 50% heavier and longer) to our Mini Stump Bucket. We developed and designed this stump bucket, not because there weren’t other options on the market, but because we didn’t like any of those options available. Some were too large rendering them useless for subcompact and small compact tractors. Others were proprietary in design forcing you to buy their system, and none of them had a combination of all the features we thought should be on the product.

Product Warranty Information: The 1-year manufacturer’s warranty covers craftsmanship issues related to the stump bucket itself such as broken welds, torn steel, or improper fit. This product is designed to be used in a harsh environment and therefore normal wear and tear are not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. If used improperly, excessive damage may occur. Normal wear and tear include items such as worn teeth, bent teeth, bent edges, and very minor plate bending which may occur under extreme circumstances. No other damage, including front-end loader damage, is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

Always take every precaution to place an equal, balanced load on your front-end loader. The longer your cylinders are extended into the roll (dump) position, the higher the likelihood of cylinder damage. Always reference your tractor and loader manual to follow proper safety practices including adequate ballast weight! Use common sense!

This product is subject to continuous improvement and design changes may be implemented at any time. In those cases, pictures may not always be immediately updated to reflect those changes.

*We tested this unit on a 100 hp John Deere 333g skid steer to see how fast we’d break it. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the only damage incurred was on the replaceable cutting edge. Impressive!




The answer to this is tractor specific, but your manual should indicate the recommended rear ballast or counterweight to balance against your front-end loader. This can be in the form of liquid ballast in you wheels, wheel weights, and the weight of the rear attachment itself. But often this is not enough weight to hit the manufacturer recommended total. Enter the hitch hanger, which provides a solution to gain that additional weight without increasing your footprint.


A 3-Pt Hitch does not product any down-pressure, so if you are running a ground engaging attachment you’re reliant upon the weight of that attachment for all of its digging power. This includes plows, discs, pluggers, aerators, tillers, and box-blades or graders. Some times the attachment will have a shelf for adding weight, but many do not. Using our Hitch Hangers is a great way to gain downward force for that attachment, providing better, faster results.

Priced per pair (1 left, 1 right) w/ 6 suitcase weights of your choosing.
