About Steve's Stumpgrinding
We always have our gear with us when looking at a job, therefore we can usually do the job straight away offering you a same day service!
We cover the bay from Katikati to Paengaroa - servicing Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Papamoa, Western Bay of Plenty, Paengaroa, Pongakawa, Pukehina, Te Puke, Te Puna, Katikati and Waihi Beach.
We have 3 machines and choose the best for the job. We prefer to grind stumps deeper than our competitors which stops them growing back. Also, should you decide to build over the area where the stump was removed you can with peace of mind. If you prefer, it does not cost much more to have the stump TOTALLY REMOVED!
We leave the site clean and tidy as our machines contain their debris.
Our small grinder fits through a standard size gate and can go up steps and over retaining walls!
|What is a Stumpgrinder?
A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool or equipment attachment that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood.
Stump grinders can be the size of a lawn mower or as large as truck. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips.
A typical stump grinder incorporates a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth. The cutter wheel movements are controlled by hydraulic cylinders to push the cutter wheel teeth laterally through the stump and to raise and lower the cutter wheel.
