  1. Thing broke, welded on 10mm plate. New wheel on the machine Big stumps Storm job, and a Scottish Pine taken down due to kids bedroom next to it Looked dodgy in the wind so took it down.
  2. New wheel. New teeth. Done a lot of big stumps a day. More then you think of a predator 38 rx. If you know what you are doing. This machine is a money maker for yourself. Look what I done. Created this thread 7 years ago. Running same machine, and still doing great. Predator 38rx is a money maker. [emoji106]
  3. I’m amazed this thread is still alive after so many years I’m doing mostly tree stumps now, also some digging after stumps been removed. And supply a pressure washing service, getting that work from stump clients. Been very busy. I’m going to spend a night next week and see all the posts in the tread. [emoji2]
  4. Out grinding in the sunshine. Hope you are all busy and living the dream [emoji2][emoji2]
  5. 48 stumps in total. Was the smaller kind of stumps. Prepare job for fencing going up.
  6. 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.
