    Don't know the answer to your question, but are you sure that you want to put one of those things on your tractor?.........I don't know your circumstances, but personally, I wouldn't..........Seems to me that it might tear up something inside the tractor, or wear out internal parts pre-maturely.........Seems it would put a lot of 'stress' on the PTO parts of the tractor............But, I am just speculating.........For I have never seen one and couldn't telly ya' how it is made or performs.

    What size tractor do you plan to run it on? How many HP / PTO HP?

    Many of the units I have seen take some serious PTO HP? Although I have seen a smaller one recently that takes a minimum of around 22 PTO HP.

    go to Shaver post driver, hole digger, stump grinder, log splitter they have a couple of them in different hp and prices. Looked at the smaller one and it looked like it would do the job. they are called StumpBuster

    I've used one on my 2120 (35 pto hp) and they work great. I almost bought an almost new one last year for $3500. They do not put any more of a load on the pto than any other implement and certainly less that the high stress continuous load of a bush hog.

    I agree with Travis. Seems like a lot of stress to place on your favorite tractors PTO. I recently rented a self propelled stump grinder for about $120/day. It was big and fast and made short work of dozens of large stumps around my property. I'm done with it now and don't have an expensive implement laying around that I will only rarely use.


    Almost forgot add. A dealer near me has PTO stump grinders for sale. On these, it looks like you will need to have 2 rear remotes to power the up/down and left/right cylinders and the one I saw looked to only have teeth on one side of the wheel so you would have to do an extra left/right motion with every cutting swing.
