WTB: Stump Grinder in Central Indiana or within a drive

I need a stumper for mid sized to larger stumps. I am in Indy and am willing to drive within reason.

Thanks!
Alex

Thanks, but I was thinking more along the lines of a Vermeer 252 or a 1625 Super Jr. Rayco. Or a well used tow behind unit. I already have an Alpine Magnum that makes short work of most stumps under 24", I just need something for the 30"+ stumps.

Check AutoRV.com, I recently saw a Vermeer 252 there. I have dealt with Alexander Equip in Lisle, Illinois too, great people, great used equipment . www.alexequip.com

I wouldn't get a vermeer 252, I picked up a new carlton sp4012 a few weeks ago and it makes the vermeer look like a toy. Much heavier machine, bigger thicker grinding wheel, hydro steering and on and on. The price was the same as the 252 so for the money I wouldn't get a vermeer definiety not the 3 wheeled one those are a nightmare to steer. If your looking to do bigger stumps and you really want a vermeer go with the 352 much better machine then the 252.

So far I am landed on a RG1625 Super Junior with 200 hours on it from the original owner. I would think it is big enough for these 30" to 40" stumps I get. It is a 4 wheeled unit.
