Stump grinding can be a complex process depending on the size and type of tree stump you want removed. It is important to know how to do it right before starting. It entails removing tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disc that chips away the wood.
Here are some of our best tips for stump grinding effectively and safely.
1. Use the right grinder
Grinders come in different sizes and with numerous features, hence the need to ascertain that you have the right stump grinder for the job. In most cases, bigger and harder trees often require larger stump grinders that have more size and power.
2. Prepare your worksite
Before using the machine prepare the site by removing any rocks and debris from around the stump. Stump grinding can take a lot of time and work, so you want to make sure your tree stump and worksite are ready before starting.
3.Move the Stump Grinder into Position
After preparing the work site, place the tree stump grinder in the right position to begin working. Make sure the angle is comfortable for you. Remember that you may have to change the height and angle multiple times when grinding the stump.
4. Use safety equipment
Stump grinding involves tree particles and debris flying out in all directions (not to mention the use of heavy tools and machines), so it’s important to protect yourself properly when working.
5. Take your time
Some stump grinding projects can be completed quickly. But that doesn’t mean you should rush the job. Always take your time when stump grinding, not just for your own safety, but also to avoid making mistakes that could waste your time later.
