Buying a Stump Grinder
Whether you’re a homeowner or a forestry worker, felling a tree means clearing away one problem only to have another to deal with: the stump. That leftover hunk of wood and roots is a beast to try to get out of the ground, but it can either rot and produce fungus or grow a new tree if you don’t do something about it. The best solution is to acquire a stump grinder so that you can whittle that stump down to chips that are easy to dispose of or use as mulch.
Here are some things to consider when buying a stump grinder.
What’s a Stump Grinder?
First of all, what are these machines? A stump grinder is a piece of power equipment that is designed with a special toothed wheel that cuts and grinds away at the wood. Every time you apply the wheel to the wood, 更多的芯片, and flakes of wood are shaved away until the entire stump is destroyed.
Why Bother Removing Stumps?
Well, as noted above, stumps can cause issues if you just walk away after feeling your tree. A stump might decompose of its own accord, but it can take years, and that stump is going to rot and decay first as it’s overtaken by fungus: not a pretty sight. 也, if the stump fails to decay, it may instead produce some new shoots and start to grow another tree right where you don’t want one! If you can remove that stump, you can clear the land and ensure that neither trees nor fungi conquer the area.
Which Cutting Wheel Size is Best?
The most important thing to look for in a stump grinder is the size of the cutting wheel. Stump grinder wheels come in several sizes to allow for both personal and professional usage. Some models are designed to cut away smaller stumps, while others are designed for those behemoth tree bases that just can’t be dug up at all.
The safety guard on the wheel of your stump grinder impacts how deeply the grinder can cut below grade, along with the way the unit is angled on the axle and how far apart the axle and the mounting point of the cutting wheel are. Most grinders have below-grade cutting depths between 9” and 18”. Above-grade cutting depths fall between 10” and 24”. You’ll simply have to chop down a stump that’s any taller than two feet with a chainsaw before you can use your stump grinder on it.
