I saw a write up on them somewhere....they were mounted on crawlers too. Looked like a good outfit. Not a Sears thing I don't believe, but has been some time ago.

I've got one of those. I wasn't sure what it was, but I figured it had to be animal powered and decided it must be a stump puller. It says Kenwood on it and has a couple of 1898 patent dates. I think it says # 6 on it too. It has a heavy wire cable, maybe 7/8" on it with an odd hook-like fixture on the end that looks like you could take a wrap around a stump with the line and then hook it to make a choker. I assumed it was put on a wooden skid and dragged to the stump patch, then chained off to a couple of stumps and the line hooked to a third stump. It looks like it would have had a long wooden beam attached to the big saddle on the drum spindle and maybe hooked to a couple of mules.

D.J. Are you thinking Kenmore? Kenwood makes car radios now. BobRR

Here is a web page with a scan of a Sears catalog page that shows steam engines being sold under the brand name of Kenwood. If they were selling engines under that brand it is likely they were also selling stump pullers.

I used to deal in horse drawn eqipment, and one of the neat things about the use of a stump puller was the need to atach to a pulling stump or in many cases a pulling tree. If you pass by a cleared field and see only one remaining tree standing a by its self.. you guessed it, we called those the pulling tree. A great place to coold both teams and teamsters. When I see one i think of all the hard pulling it took to clear that field.

Wow. I never thought of that. Always wondered why there was only one tree in the large open field. Thanks Randy for the history lesson! Frank Y

Default KENWOOD

KENWOOD was an old Sears brand name, many years ago. I believe that windmills were also sold under that name.

I stand corrected. And have learned 3 things off this thread! Sears sold things under the name off Kenwood, they sold steam tractors and why there is that lone tree in the middle of a field! BobRR

Some one mentioned that these things were used on crawlers. The guy I got mine from thought it was from a very old dozer. I thought he was mistaken, and that it was definitely an animal powered device. How would you use something like this with a dozer? Mules could step over or around stumps, but a tractor running in a circle (?)would have to run over them.

All I know is that they had a LARGE Winch in the dozer....I really don't know how they worked.

I know someone who would be really interested in buying the Kenwood (#6) stump puller. Thinking of selling?
