What are the options at getting rid of a stump?
Stump Grinders - Rent or Buy:
*The smallest one costs somewhere between $5 to $10,000. Rental places charge about $100 for a day use. Notice: you better be in good physical shape. You will get a workout and for one stump quite a long time!
* I have used the Super Jr. the next size up. There is a major difference in improvements over the small manual types. These cost between $11 to $15,000 and rent somewhere near $200 a day.
* There are four machines pictured that show only one tire. These four machines get pulled or pushed to every stump with a vehicle. Note: If you can’t drive your vehicle to the stump, because the stump is inside of a fenced in area, you can’t grind that stump.
* Note: Usually when you rent, the teeth are your responsibility and you get charged extra if you damage any of them. The ones pictured are about $12.00 per tooth.
Hire / Stump Grinding Service:
I try to work cheap, but I also need to make a fair amount to be able to operate this very high maintenance machine and pay the rental on it. The hydraulic pump unit an it cost me $7,500 in parts and labor. Operating a stump grinder is not cheap.
