Stump solutions

Question

The outlaws recently had an aborist in to do some work to some mature trees and remove some unwanted ones. 

Now they have done a great job especillay trimming the larger tree. Where one of the unwanted trees has been removed there is a beautifully level base of a stump left it’s virtualy flush to the lawn and about 9” diameter.

 

Now what sort of work is it to grind the stump down below the lawn and turf seed over it? Is it an easy job with a hired grinder ?

 

if it’s a day/had a day with a grinder then add top soil and seed I would do it myself.

 

any recommendations on grinder hire costs around Bridgewater or Taunton?91910049-E912-4622-BC88-89-BD1-DCF1-FA3.0-FFA9-A9-B-B6-F2-4-F04-9066-AE5-B1-AD62

If access was easy I’d get a tree surgeon in with a grinder, if you clear it up you could get it done for 50 or 60 quid.

loading/ unloading grinder, travel to and from job site. unloading grinder again 50-60 quid???

 

He'll be lucky...

Not as a single job, as part of a stump grinding day. 

 

Take about 8 minutes with my grinder.

ah I see.

 

probably wouldn't take much more than that with my little camon sg30. Love that little thing. 1 hour to do an 18 inch high 4ft wide stump the other day and that was with not the sharpest edge on the green teeth.

This is the only stump that needs doing (in the lawn) and sounds like an easy job with the right kit. FIL thought the stump was being removed as part of the job.  Only hire I have found so far is hire station and £90 a day plus vat for machine there is a side gate for access so it’s easy enough just either need someone local who doesn’t have transport costs or diy with a hired machine.

It easy. It'll take 5 mins roughly. Just need a van to put the stump grinder into or pay for pick up and drop off or get someone in to do it. Prolly £150 ish inc VAT no clean up other than a blow around of chips.

if i was out doing a few stump jobs in one day and i was local i’d charge £60 plus vat

probably take longer to get the machine on and off the trailer than to grind it out and tidy it up
