Rock Stumpmaster vs Original

Recommended Posts

Gonna keep it a while but intend to get something bigger and self driven in the future. A multitip conversion would take about 8 sets of teeth to break even which would take 2-3 years for me so doesn't make sense right now with more important things to spend on

Couple of pics of a stump (followed by a the hole left) I've just done first taken at 10:34 the second at 10:48, cypress tree I felled yesterday to give anyone who's interested an idea of its real capabilities

Definitely going to invest in one of these little devils. Will be a good low risk foot in the door...

 

How do you guys carry yours, am I silly thinking I'll be able to lift it in the back of my 110 hicap alone?

No chance, two man lift to get mine up onto back of a transit, have managed it with ramps solo but not easy so won't do it if can avoid it

So in general would people recommend these grinders for occasional, sensible sized stumps?

 

 

Yup, I prob do 2-3 jobs a month with mine on average so that's somewhere between 3-400 ish with an outlay of 1500. Bigger stumps I get others in with hydraulic machines until I can afford/ have the workload for a bigger machine myself
