I am not sure what type tree it was. I bought the house in 2019, and the PO said the stump has been there since the house was built in 1997. I have never had a stump where pretty much all the roots went straight down. I had dug out trying to find them. Then I dug down and down. When I had it high centered I started at it with the sawzall. I finally got enough cut to start move it and find more of them to cut.Nice job! What kind of stump? Ive dug out some big pine stumps that went fairly easy but ash are a bear to get out. I dont use my sawsall If I cant break some of the roots I just dig a little further out and then snap them with the bucket curl. Yea the holes a little bigger but what the heck your lawn is a mess by then anyway!
I burn them out.View attachment 87417 View attachment 87418 View attachment 87419 View attachment 87420 SSo I had a chance to use the Ripper today. It did ok. Not it's fault the dang stump didn't have any roots going out from it. they all pretty much went straight down. I put my bucket back on and started digging and digging. I had to brake out the sawzall and start cutting the roots. Well after 5 hours It is out of the hole pushed into the woods. I will say I know I could have done it faster with a mini X , but they cost to much to rent for one stump. I used to save up projects until I had enough to justify renting one. Now with this BX23 I can do them on my time and keep the projects moving along. View attachment 87421
the local retired guy charges me $35 each stump up to 30" diameter.
Woodland Mills now has the WG24 PTO stump grinder in stock and ready to ship. Fall is here, lots of dead ash to bring down, and my will power is weakening fast.....After digging out 1 stump, I figured it was faster, easier, and less expensive to have them ground down to 6" below ground. I usually wait till I have a bunch to have done, and the local retired guy charges me $35 each stump up to 30" diameter.
I bought them on Amazon a few years ago for my BX2380. They also fit the BX23S so I kept them when I got rid of the 2380. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FZQJN24/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1Mlarv where did you get that seat cover?
Wow. Where do you find these guys? I'd like to use them as a sub. Hell, at a dollar per inch I'll even supply the grinder! I generally charge $5-6/inch diameter...even that's too cheap.That's cheap! Around here it's $50 to show up, and a buck per inch of diameter.
I can vouch for how good the Woodland Mills stump grinder works. I have it for my LX2610 Has not grumbled at anything I have thrown at it yet... Now my old B7510 it liked to shake the tractor around and I had to do really small bites.Woodland Mills now has the WG24 PTO stump grinder in stock and ready to ship.

Buring works well for me.I called a local stump grinder in or area to get a quote. 8 dollars per inch, measured where the stump comes out of the ground. I,ve got a 36 ash inch stump. After receiving that quote, I,ll probably take my time, and burn it instead. I previously rented a stump grinder from home depot, and that thing was totally useless. A total waste of a couple hours of driving time, and a hundred bucks, to pick it up and return it, after 10 minutes of futility
