    Effective, but it will f*ck up the surrounding soil big style: cut the whole right back to stump, and then dig out the root. It will also break up and aerate the soli well for whatever you want to put.

    Unfortunately sometimes you just have to do things the old fashioned back-breaking way: or see if you can hire a mini-jcb.

  9. Your better off grubbing it out with a mattock. If its big (they can get a bit meaty), cut the stump as low as you can and put Rootout on it neat.
