It's not all fun and games. Today we went straight to the source for stump grinder maintenance. That's our machine, in the shop it was originally built in. #treework#treeremoval#stumpgrind#Kan-DuStumpGrinders
How do you remove a 1.5ft cottonwood stump that is halfway down a 7ft embankment?
Step 1. Realize the stump grinder won't reach it unless you spend 2 days building a ramp for it.
Step 2. Sacrifice a climbing line and take as many wraps between the truck and stump as possible (still broke at 5.) Cry as you realize the Arbormaster Bigfoot rope is no longer available :*( Step 3. Rip it out and load it in 1 minute with the 8,000lb excavator.
Step 4. Rejoice that you have a good excuse to buy another line!
