Stump grinding is not a job for amateurs. It involves the use of a stump grinder or stump cutter that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood. Stump grinders can be the size of a lawn mower or as large as truck, and which one to use is determined by the job at hand. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips. Stump grinders usually incorporate a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth and wheel movements are controlled by hydraulic cylinders that push the cutter wheel teeth laterally through the stump and to raise and lower the cutter wheel. Watch a stump grinder in action and you’ll immediately see why you should give us a call to get the job done right.
