Small stump grinder set up

Recommended Posts

After many years of trying to find a good useable pedestrian stump grinder I think I have found my ideal set up. I have a Rayco RG 13 MKII with Multi Tip cutting system. It cuts small and medium hardwood stumps with ease and even lave stumps well but just takes longer. The Multi tip is the best I have used, previously I had green teeth on my large and mid size carltons and they are no match for Multi tip. I have found grinding on a board lets the wheels pivot better. If you have a small budget then I recommend this set up.

I've got basically the same machine badged as a Camon C500 and it's running Rayco super teeth which do the job but not very well and are a pain in the backside to change and resharpen. What sort of money is it to change the cutting system to the multi tip?

 

It cost me £460 to convert but worth every penny, they can be changed in seconds and they cut so much better than rayco super teeth. When I got the grinder it had rayco super teeth on it, they and I didn't rate them, I even bought a brand new set and I wasn't impressed, then I put the multi tip on and was blown away at how well they cut. I have that set up stands me at 2k rather than the 9k I had tied up in my large Carlton.

Just out of interest ( and bloody cheek of course) what do u charge for a stump that size?

 

That was 1 of 13 stumps I had to do, 5 of them were alot bigger, that was one of the smaller ones. If I had to go and price that stump on its own and it was local and I would charge £60.

To what depth do you grind? or do you make sure you obliterate it all :)
