The stump grinders generally work by having a cutting wheel lined with teeth (often tungsten) and they spin at high speed. When theis wheel is passed over the stump, it removes small amounts of wood at a time, creating woodchip/mulch material.
Whilst grinders make history of stumps, it is imperative that there are no services such as electricity cables, gas or water pipes in the vicinity of the stump as the teech will cut throught these if care is not taken to identify exactly where these hazards are located.
The grinders we use vary from a small push grinder which is similar in size to a self propelled mower and can be relatively manouvered around alleyways and carried up steps to access tighter areas, to larger self propelled machines which are operated by a remote control making it physically easier to use but requires good access to the stump.
