    Default Re: Geinding some stumps

    Hi Gordon,
    Your right, it was pretty much 36 mins. I didn't actually time it because I was posting as I went, so aside from some slow internet service that took a minute or two to upload from my phone, the post times were right on.

    The large pine really flared out at the bottom, right about ground level, so I repositioned quite a few times to grind the large portions of the roots. I'm trying to level off the area a bit so I have a good spot to put my sawmill. I still need to take down 3 trees and grind those stumps so I'll try to get some video when I do that.

    A bit more power at my PTO (like double) would really make a difference in the speed, as well as how much of a bite I could take off in each pass.

    What stump grinder do you have? Mine is a Shaver SC-25 and I am still learning how to be proficient with it -- mostly taking the right sized cut each swipe. When I'm not being too ambitious, it seems to work great.

    Louie,
    It's the shaver sc-50. My tractor is about as small as I could get away with for this size stumpgrinder.

    I have 39pto hp and it's rated for 35-100. I agave to be careful how much of a bite I take.

    I posted this clip a few weeks ago -- one of my first stumps. I could use more HP too. My tractor is 33 pto HP and I bought the smaller stump buster.
