Ayuh,.... If it's completely or even nearly Free from the ground, I doubt it can be ground out,...
But,...
Bein' Free from the ground, all ya need is a Low built trailer with a ramp, 'n a winch to drag it onto the wagon...
Or,...
A Contractor with a skid-steer on a trailer could have that Outa there in, Ohhh, probably a couple to a few Hundred Bucks....

Thanks. The guy who cut the tree up wanted an extra 1000. I'll keep looking.

Fairview has a good, simple plan. Get a chain saw, rent one if necessary. Purchase an extra chain, less than $20. Chew up the stump using the chain saw. Since the stump is out of the ground, you should be able to cut it up reasonably well without hitting the dirt. If you hit the dirt, you will destroy the blade, but for $20 it would be a bargain vs. $1000 or whatever. Just be careful when cutting that you do not get saw kickback, very easy to do when cutting close to the ground.
