Stump Grinder $

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I recently acquired a 13 H.P. Honda powered stump grinder. I was wondering if anyone knows how much I should sell it for? I was thinking maybe $2500. I have six sets of cutting carbides for it. Also, does anyone know how to charge for stump grinding services? Thanks!

I have had guys grind some stumps for me before and when I was checking into it they were charging by the inch. But that was some time ago so I don't remember the exact amount they were charging. So my buddy came out and ground 8 stumps for $250 dollars. We have a true value that rents a 8 horse one for a $140 dollars a day.

we trade off equipment use from other golf course. We use thier stump grinder they ue our sand spreader, etc. But, the commercial stump grinders in my area charge 1.25 per caliper inch with a minimum charge that changes with distance to site, etc.

I paid $40 to have a stump and roots removed from my front yard.

It was probably 2 1/2 feet by 3 feet when you figure in the roots. They had to go down about a foot.

I thought it was a dang good price. Of course it only took him about 5 mintues to do it. Probably took longer to unload and load the gear.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
