Brush Grubber broke

Pulled, cut, chipped more underbrush, but then the brush grubber broke and we couldn't pull up any more yaupon.  Dang.

I got one stump up before the grubber broke.  I was very pleased with the stump I pulled, just wish I could have pulled more.  For perspective, the bar on the chain saw is 18".

As you can see from the photo, I cut the yaupon about two and a half to three feet up.  I wanted to leave a nice bit of trunk to use for pulling up the stumps.  I guess it will have to wait until.  Dang.
The part that came off the grubber is a spring that holds the jaws tight on the tree trunk.  You can see on the picture, I've drawn in where the spring goes.  Unfortunately, the manufacturer is out of the spring.  It's on a two week back ordered.  Yep, I ordered two.  I don't want to be caught short, again!  Dang!
