  1. I am after some advice on which Stump Grinder would be best for my Small Business (Grounds Maintenance and Tree Surgery). The problem: When I have to collect a Stump Grinder from a hire company it takes 1/2 a day to go and collect it, and another 1/2 a day to return it. So you end up with 2-3 days hire for 1x days income. So this is a service I don't push because it interferes with undertaking other work. So I was wondering if this should be a new piece of kit to expand the business's range of services. I have been looking at the following and these are my thoughts: Brands: I have been looking mainly at the Preditor, although I have used a couple of Torro machines. Question 1: So advice from people on what they find good and bad about brands would be helpful. Size of Machine: 1) Predator 360 Stump Grinder or Toro SGR-13 Stump Grinder / I thought that maybe it's ok for small job, but would it be painful on a bigger job and would I out grow it before really get started? 2) Predator 460 Stump Grinder / I thought that maybe it's a better starting point for the smaller job that could do the occasional bigger job. Still good for narrow access. But would you out grow this machine too quickly? 3) Predator 38X Tracked Manual Stump Grinder or Toro STX-26 Stump Grinder or Toro STX-38 Stump Grinder / But then I thought do you just go for a bigger tracked Stump Grinder like this as a starting point? This will obviously be in a much higher price bracket, knowing that you might just cover your costs initially without much return, until you can build the business up in the longer term. Question 2: So I would be most grateful for advice from people who have been in this quandary as to where to start with machine size. Question 3: The machine size might change the pricing that you charge, along with the volume of work that you can undertake that might change the view on what you would choose to buy. So advice on job pricing with the different sized machines would be helpful? All advice is most welcome...
  2. Afternoon, I am just moving into the world of blacksmithing and need something to use as an anvil stand. I’m looking for a very sturdy, hardwood stump with the following dimensions:- H - 420mm D - 450mm If anybody would be able to help and is in the Catterick area I would be happy to compensate them with cash, alcohol or any other service (Maybe not any...) thanks for your time.
  3. Right, I know very little about the stump grinding business but I am eager to get into it. My boss has said that he is not interested in doing any form of stump grinding so I thought I would capitalise on it! He only does domestic work so a lot of the time it will be narrow access (fitting through garden side gates). I am looking for something that is self-propelled but the deck does spin. I know there is a huge market so I thought I would ask the people in the know who have used these machines before. They are all much the same but their prices obviously vary so does the brand really determine the prices? I am looking for some advice on what I should go for like a Bandit HB20, CARLTON SP2010, FSI B22, Predator 360 and 460 In your opinions what do you like best? What are the running costs like? And if any of you guys are thinking of getting rid of one or know of a great dealer, I am based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Any advice would be appreciated. Many Thanks,
  4. We are looking to hire a stump grinder off someone for a day for 5 conifer stumps(biggest around 16" diameter) near Farnham in the next couple of weeks. Any help appreciated. please message me on here or call ben hyatt on 07823321959 to discuss! Cheers!
  5. Can anyone tell me how much it would cost to remove a cherry tree stump? No doubt the answer will be "it depends" so here are all the variables I can think of. Location: North West London (postcode area HA5) Access: Max width 620mm Proximity: Right next to a concrete gravel board & fence with an armoured LV cable running next to it (I can probably elevate the cable though, so that shouldn't be a problem). Not much point removing the fence panel as the neighbour's conservatory is immediately behind it. The tree was cut down over 6 months ago so the wood is decaying as expected. I've had a go with various hand tools but my wife called a halt to my amateur efforts when I put the axe through the fence panel. The good news is that seems to be a void under the stump towards the fence so it should be possible to avoid it. I've attached a pic in case that helps. Thanks, Paul
  6. This is my first attempt at carving anything (and it shows) but the clients were delighted. Needs to be tidied up to remove the chain marks, but I'm happy with the basic size/shape etc... The tree was over 100 years old and was infested with old nails and things - spent more time sharpening than actually cutting [ame] [/ame]
  7. Hi guys Has anybody got any other wheel fitted to their predator 50 stump grinder other than the Multi tip?? Please let me know.
  8. whilst satisfying my addiction to shredding videos I came across this one which I thought may appeal to you all. Bit of a beast I think you'll agree!
  9. Hi guys looking for a little help, advice etc. Have just brought a little Rayco 13 stump grinder from [email protected], used it a couple of times now and the teeth are getting a tad worn. Wanted to find out from you guys where you all get your grinder finger teeth from? Got told by a mate it doesn't matter how expensive they are they are wear the same. So, I suppose the real question is where can I get cheap grinder finger teeth from and how much do you pay??? Cheers Guys, Horatio
  10. Found this big (well it's big for us townies!) stump in a hamlet near Hoarwithy/Ross-on-Wye.
  11. Hi, Any ideas on how to grind on a slope of 45 degrees, are there self levelling machines, or should I just winch them out, there are no major stumps, just 5-7 years old ash saplings. Cheers
