Why use professionals for the grinding of stumps?

Why use professionals for the removal and grinding of stumps? Totally valid question! On the surface, it would seem like if stores are offering rental grinders for hourly blocks, it would make sense for some people to try and do it themselves, which definitely makes sense. Stores often have consumer level grinders often available in 2-4 hour chunks of time, for a fee. We’re going to explain a little more in depth why we think stump grinding is a service that should absolutely be hired out. 

Using stump grind machines like ours is dangerous, and requires proper training and caution while using. This task is not the easiest thing, and there are many hazards to be cautious of: firstly, the stumper uses a large rotating saw to grind the wood, which is dangerous in and of itself. This large rotating saw can do some serious damage or harm if not used correctly. Secondly, we don’t wood chips flying everywhere and hitting people in the face, eyes, etc. We also would hate for those wood chips to fly into nearby structures (like homes, cars, windows) and cause damage. These are serious consequences of operating machinery like this. It is our belief that grinding stumps is a task that should be left to the professionals, rather than simply hoping none of these issues actually comes about.
