How to remove a yucca tree stump

last month

We had a mature yucca tree felled from our garden back in the Spring and had stump remover applied to it. I'm not sure how old the tree was - perhaps 10 years - and reached 3-4 metres in height (perhaps more?! it was the same height, even taller, as my two story home). The tree stump has been sending up new shoots all summer so we decided to remove the stump altogether as we want to landscape the garden. My husband has currently spent 8 hours trying to dig it out and it is like a continuation of the trunk below ground - just a chunky thick mass of tree trunk! He's dug almost 120cm deep and the trunk is not budging in the slightest. We have no idea how deep this thing could possibly be, and the soil has turned to clay at the depth he's current reached. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it worth the effort to keep trying to dig this thing out? Any advice appreciated.
