In this situation we couldn’t get our large hydraulic machine to the stump. So instead we opted for our small portable stump grinder. As you can see in the picture it’s narrow in width and can easily be manoeuvred into difficult areas. This stump was surrounded by concrete which meant we had to take extra care when grinding. Making sure our stump grinder machine didn’t come into contact with the concrete as it can damage our machine cutting teeth.
In this situation we needed to use our portable hand held machine to grind deep enough for replanting. This meant grinding 400mm to 500mm below ground level to remove the entire stump and root system. This allowed for a perfect space to plant a new tree. It is important we know what is happening to the area after the stump has been ground out so we can grind to the appropriate depth. We make sure your new plant has plenty of room to grow without getting caught up on an old tree stump.

We always try to be the most efficient stump grinder possible using wherever means possible. In this situation we needed to use our aluminium ramps to enable us to use our most efficient stump grinder, down into a boggy building site. We could have used our smaller portable machine, but it would have added to the cost of the job.
