Been learning a lot about stump grinders

I recently ordered a hand swing stump grinder for both my lawn care business and my large yard with stumps to remove. The grinder I bought is a PowerKing and it’s compatible with Greenteeth carbide teeth and it comes with a bonus package of a tow bar, cover and a extra set of teeth. I compared different makers and costs and this was the best deal I could find and I don’t have to pay for the freight shipping on it since I got it from Home Depot. This is it-

if I can drum up enough jobs in the area to justify a bigger grinder I might look into something with track drive and easier to operate like this Bandit model.

But in the rural area I’m in I don‘t know if I can do that Even though a local stump grinder had to quit his business due his health. Time will tell.

The grinder works good. I ground three stumps in my yard and it took less than ten minutes for each of them. The brand I bought has a drum brake on one wheel to help you swing it as apposed to other brands that just have a pin locked wheel like snowblowers use and it has a clutch, some in the same price range don’t.

I'm thinking about buying one of these to have around here as well. Keep us posted on your thoughts and results. thanks.
