Post your stump grinding photos

Recommended Posts

Had a strange issue with the machine. Would not start. Tried everything, Even the screwdriver on the starter motor. Nothing. Found the earth on the plate the engine sits on had bad connection to the engine due to loose bolts . So engine bolts have been loose created muck between it and the engine. I created a cable between the earth and the bolt holding the starter engine. And tighten the engine bolts holding it to the plate. Won’t lift it and clean. This fix sorted it. A thought to anyone in similar situation. IMG_1314.thumb.jpg.5359e7b66bfd22392f65c2b3c0369693.jpg

Is there any reason to leave tree stumps 12" high? I would have thought before I grind the stump it would be easier to cut it flush before one begins. 🤔

Can only think no-one wanted to put their chain through all the epi growth at base, especially when grinder is pto driven

There are reasons for leaving stumps high, if digging out for example. Without good reason it's better to cut low I believe.

 

A while back I was swearing at the felling course that had been held in the wood where I was working, tore a hydraulic hose out of the tractor on a needlessly high stump... (for long standing members here, I'm not the reincarnation of TCD but agree with his opinion on high stumps!)

These are two left high by a lazy git of a tree surgeon. I asked client did she want them left so high,  didn't get a say in it. No reason to not cut right down, I did it with my Echo with a 20 inch bar. Then ground them right out. No crap in there to warrant leaving them like that. Its easier to cut them high if you don't like bending, lazy twat.
