Feb 12, I have seen people using jack hammers on TV to dig hard ground to dig holes. (using a 5" wide bit) I was wondering if anyone had experience with this. Would it be good for removing shrub/ tree stumps by slicing thru roots? Anyone heard of the dyna digger? It's like a jackhammer w/ a treecutter.barted Reading Time: 1 min. Jackhammers work on concrete or rock because the percussion breaks and shatters it. On a stump you are more likely to just drive the bit into the wood then have fun bouncing on top of a stuck bit.
You might start some splits but good luck breaking the stump apart. Even if you could make it work, a jackhammer can weigh as much as 90 pounds.

Continue working downward and inward from all sides toward the taproot beneath the stump.
Then use the hammer to chisel all the way around another 4 to 5 inches without removing the soil. This will stop the roots from being pushed down and sideways. Once done then continue with the post hole digger with all the roots untangled. February 16, at am #Estimated Reading Time: 8 mins.

Because here’s the thing: now that the tree is dead, those roots will continue to rot away and you don’t want to have voids under that slab. Once the slab is up, you want to dig out as much of those roots as you treecutter.bars: 2.

Of course cutting all the tree roots will in fact kill the tree.
A general rule for cutting tree roots is don’t cut more than 25% of the root system. Measure the trunk diameter at about 4 feet from the ground. Take that measurement and multiply it by 6. Mark off that distance from the trunk and that is about where 25% of the roots can be cut.
See image below. For example if you have a 12″ diameter trunk 4 feet Missing: jackhammer. Position the trencher blade to one side of the root you want to cut with the blade teeth facing the root at a degree angle. Digging out some of the soil around the root will make positioning Missing: jackhammer.
