My wife and I have s couple stumps that need removal. Does anyone have a stump grinder? Better yet, cn anyone help us with the stump removal. We will pay with a freshly smoked brisket.

Thanks,

David

Sorry dave, no stump grinder here (I could use one too) but I've been told that if you drill a bunch of really deep holes in the stump, poor in the used oil from your car, let it soak for a few days and then "accidentally" drop a match down the holes you won't have much left in a few minutes :>

For some reason I don't think my neighbor would appreciate that since the stumps are pretty close to his wooden fence.

Are you absolutely sure the cache is under them. I would expand my gz first before you go to that extreme a measure for a smiley.

I'll plant a cache there. A puzzle cache. To find the cache, you must remove th 4 stumps. The hint would be..... Are you stumped?

Place a cache there, but not a container. Then everyone who comes looking for it will be tearing apart the stumps trying to find it. Before too long, no stumps!

I had over a dozen stumps in my yard left over after I had the electric co-op drop a bunch of trees that were to close to my house. All in the 1.5 to 2 foot diameter.

These are my observations and the decision I made.

I had tried those stump solutions that are suppose to rot the stump out, had no luck.

The solution were you drill holes and burn it out route, didn't work.

Stump grinder guy wanted over $200/ stump.

One of my students wanted about a $100/ stump to pull them out with his tractor.

This is the route I took:
Bought a spare bar and 2 spare chains for my chainsaw. Dug all around the stump, would use the garden hose and sprayer to remove as much dirt and junk from around the roots as possible. When I would get roots exposed that were at least a foot underground, I would cut them with the chainsaw.

Each stump would take 1-2 evenings of work maximum after work as well as numerous times sharpening the chain. The work was not that difficult, the hose and sprayer and using the water to erode the soil under the stump worked beautiful.

In the end, I destroyed two chains and a bar, but saved well over a $1000 dollars.
