Can a bobcat do the job?

Q We’ve discovered some large stones in the garden. They are embedded in the ground. Some are only a few inches above ground and several are about 2 feet above ground. I’m looking for the least expensive option to clear the stones. I also considered chipping away at the stones until they were about 8" below ground, then over-filling with soil and growing grass.

What type of tool could I use to break up the stones? Would a hydraulic concrete hammer work or would a Bobcat do the job? Who do I contact? K Joseph



A Contact any of the machinery companies on this website. They can rent you a bobcat that has a jackhammer on it. This would be much faster than a standard jackhammer.

Typically the stones go deeper and are larger than you think so digging them could be a much harder task than breaking them.
