Checklist For Stump Grinders

Drive
  • Stumpgrinders, also known as tree stump grinders, are available with a variety of drive forms.
  • The hand-driven st ump grinder is usually single-axle and has a rigid milling arm.
  • The hydraulically powered stump grinder is controlled either by cable or by radio. This allows you to move farther away from the machine during operation. Accordingly, there is less risk of injury.
  • In addition, there are stump grinders without their own drive, which serve as an attachment for the tractor, excavator or wheel bearing.
Engine
  • Stump grinders are usually equipped with a gasoline engine.
  • The displacement is about 420 to 450 cc, depending on the model.
  • This gives the tillers a power output of about 13 to 18.5 hp.
  • A manual or electric start makes it easier to turn on the engine.
Milling Disc
  • Stump grinders are equipped with a rotating cutting tool, the milling disc.
  • The milling disc consists of a permanently installed wear plate and carbide-covered milling teeth.
  • The milling teeth can be replaced depending on the manufacturer.
  • If the stump is to be completely removed after milling the tree trunk, you need a milling machine whose milling disc penetrates a good 80 cm into the ground.
  • In the best case, the rotation speed can be adjusted continuously.
Dimensions and Weight
  • Stump grinders weigh at least 100 kg.
  • To ensure that you can transport the tiller easily, the dimensions must fit the transport vehicle. Also make sure that you can get it through all doors and gates without any problems. A narrow width of about 750 to 1000 mm is recommended.
  • Stump grinders with a height-adjustable handle are useful for ergonomic work.
Safety
  • For safety reasons , hand-held stump grinders should have a so-called dead man’s switch. If you let go of the drive, the machine switches off automatically.
  • Some models come with safety equipment that includes safety glasses, hearing protection and gloves.
