Removing a Tree Stump with Reciprocating Saw #HomeImprovement

The days are shorter and the nights are getting cooler, but I had to finish removing the last tree stump from the backyard before the rainy season. Southern California's weather has been unpredictable this year, hot then cool and back to warm again. I was able to use the chainsaw to cut the trees down to stump level, but as the blade got closer to the dirt, it dulled, something I had to learn during these DIY projects. During this COVID-19 experience, I have been doing a number of home improvement projects. I have realized that this has become a fun outlet for me, learning how to do things by myself without hiring a contractor for everything. Also, Home Depot, Tractor Supply and Amazon have all been my go-to places when I have needed tools, parts, and supplies. 

In the following video below, I show you how I removed the final tree stump from the backyard of the house with the Porter Cable Reciprocating SawIt made the job much easier and I thoroughly enjoyed 
using the Diablo 12 inch Carbide Pruning Blade. The reciprocating saw came with a smaller blade, but I wanted to use a blade that gave me lots of success on the other stumps. It cuts through wood like slicing through a stick of butter. The two together, as you will see, worked well and I show you how to attach the pruning blade to the saw as well. The Porter Cable saw had more power than I expected. I will definitely use it for more wood cutting projects and yard work in the future with other blade attachments.
