    Do a search on "grinder" in this forum and you will get several threads with a good bit of info on them.

    I have a Shaver SC-25 Stump Buster (for up to 35 HP@PTO). It was about $5K new. I would consider renting something to grind 60 stumps. You could grind those in one week-end, easy. I looked at several types and felt this brand was the heaviest-duty among the smaller grinders. LINK

    Honestly, for 60 stumps, it probably would be cheaper to rent one, unless you have a lot more growing awfully fast

    Default Re: Stump grinder for 3 pt hitch

    I own a Woods grinder and have ground about 1100 stumps with it so far. Also have rented equipment (25 HP Self-contained grinders). Over 1600 stumps all told. For 60 stumps I'd rent.

    Lots of variables for time.....depending on wood species, diameter and height of the stumps. But I could take out up to 200 pine stumps a day with rental equipment. I grind mine to 8" depth or so (I can run my tiller over the ground when done). More with my tractor and grinder.
    3320 eHydro, 300CX Loader & 15 + great attachments

    You gotta mine allot of dirt to find a diamond.

    As much as I'd like having a grinder a few hundred on a rental means I can buy a good wood splitter with what I'll save. I thank you for you good advice.
