Solution needed

Hey I got a plot which has a load of currant bushes on. I don't want the bushes and are looking to get rid of them I am unable to dig straight due to the size so I plan of cutting them back. Wonder what is best to use so I can get them right down to the base so I can dig out. Some of them are so thick I think a chainsaw might be the only option but please let me knw your thoughts Thanks

    Our favourite tools for a job like this are a mattock or small pickaxe and an iron bar. Large rachet loppers are handy for cutting roots as you go. Always helps with two, and never looks so daunting if you can get some help.
