I have a Land Pride "consumer" type grinder rated 25 to 55 HP and I normally use it with a 50 HP Kubota with no issue. I have used it with a 70 HP Kubota and noticed no difference. I could see where too much HP would be an issue if you hit an non-movable object or if a continuous diet of too much HP would be just to much for the framework of the unit.I have a 75hp tractor inbound with a reversible seat (so pto is in the front)
I'm looking for a stump grinder but I am worried about having to much horsepower for these consumer level grinders
Does anyone have advice or suggestions on what I should get? I don't think I have enough stumps for a commercial level product, but I want to own my own grinder instead of renting.
My suggestion would be to call Land Pride to see what they say. They will tell you to stay at the lower HP amount because they have to but maybe the back-and-forth conversation will give you some clues. Hope this helps.
