Stump grinders
« on: July 01, 2017, 12:01:11 AM »

Does anyone have experience with a tractor mounted 3 point, PTO driven stump grinder? Wondering how they work. Would like to find one without breaking the bank.

I have rented one in the past. I had to use our 35hp pto tractor because the 18hp didn't have enough grunt.  The one I used was pto driven hydraulic power to the wheel with one ram to pull and push the wheel back and fourth about 30" swing.  It was pretty nice.  I'm not 100% certain anymore but I want to say it was a Vermeer brand.

Check out the ones from Woodland Mills.  Have not heard anything negative about them yet.
