Good idea and well executed!
Do you chain the trailer to it?
Good Luck,

Don't let it run at high power too long, you might change the rotation speed of the planet. lol

If you ever decide that you HAVE to get the post out...try using a Root Feeder device.

Turn the hose on; insert the long tube into the ground all around your post...and pull the post out much more easily than doing it dry. We used two old fashioned car jacks, along with a single piece of SS pipe run through a hole in the posts to clear about ten posts from a friend's back yard. regards, Rich
