In appearance, stump grinders look like a combination of a circular saw and a lawnmower. This attachment is used to get up close to a stump and grind it into small wood chunks.
A stump grinder’s standard components are a cutting wheel, teeth, debris guard, hydraulic motor, quick-attach, and manual holding tube.
Skid steer stump grinders are designed to remove tree stumps that are still rooted in place. They are made to take stumps out whether they’re in large open spaces or small areas.
This skid steer attachment uses a potent rotating wheel that cuts into the wood that it’s been employed to destroy. Situated on the blade are teeth that tear the wood into smaller segments. The wheel is controlled by the operator, who navigates it over the rooted wood stump. It’s then put to work, breaking down the projection to below level of the ground.
Considering the main task of this attachment is based on the blade, two main problems can arise.
Firstly, the rotating wheel doesn’t spin. If this happens, check to see if the grinding disc is obstructed. Look for any material causing this and remove it. If this isn’t the case, it’s possibly your skid steer with oil level or flow problems. See your dealer for assistance in this situation.
Secondly, the cutting disc has little power. This obstacle can be a skid steer issue with a low oil level or clogged filter or relief valve setting. You’ll need to see your equipment dealer for their assistance.
Deciding on your type of attachments always depends on the task at hand. Knowing what you need to do and how you need to approach it will help your efficiency decisions. Focus on the features you need to do so successfully.
Powerful machines are made for specific jobs, and it’s the same for stump grinders. Determined by the scale of the job and the complexity, there are different models from which to choose.
The five stump grinder categories are:
Skid stump grinders: these run on continuous track treads, driven by an operator from the top or back. Like with tanks, these tracks clutch onto large ground areas, often used for soft surfaces not suited for conventional wheels.
Riding grinders: these are nimble, with an operator in control from a seat, as with a small tractor.
Wheeled, rear-hitch stump grinders: you’re able to attach these to a trailer or other vehicle for travel purposes. It’s then disconnected on-site and driven into position.
Handlebar/hand-guided/walk-behind grinders: lightweight and portable. They are small and therefore fit on a truck.
Stump grinder attachment: as discussed through this article, you add this to a skid steer, and the arms that operate the bucket will then utilize this accessory.
