Rent a stump grinder or "hire" a stumpgrinder?


Pics to come. I'll rent a cement mixer when this is all over -that way I'll at least get to rent SOME kind of machinery to finish my stairs and my wife won't be worried while I'm out there ......

This is at my house in Connecticut. I split my time between Denmark and the United States - although these days I'm in Connecticut most of the time.

Good choice in hiring it out. I just cut 3 smaller (12-18") cedar & spruce down the other day and the individual ground them about 12" below in less than 30 mins. Although your's is substantially larger, they won't have to re-position much, so it shouldn't take long at all with the right equipment.

HUGE stump grinder FTW! I dont' want to guess on what this thing weighed, but it had one tire on top of a 1" thick piece of slate for a few minutes and it snapped the slate into 4 pieces! Serious piece of machinery. I'm very glad I got to watch it, but also very glad I didn't operate it. Took him around an hour and all I had was a giant hole filled w/ mulch. Spent most of the day yesterday tamping, setting the form and pouring concrete.
