I ran my sk500 side by side with that mt52 on multiple jobs and, with the exception of drinking a bit more fuel in a day, the sk500 was the better machine of the two. A lot faster.

Now, the sk650 is in a whole other league of its own...

soil cultivator, harley rake,
Sorry but, all hydraulic driven mini skid grinders suck. if you get one, you need one with it's own motor to drive the cutter wheel. I'd suggest buying a vermeer sc252 and forget about the mini attachment. it'll be money better spent. trust me. been there.

I do have a grapple rake. 48"

grapple is made by AnGo. pics attached. think it might be sold with sk500 though. I don't have a grinder for sale. that was just a suggestion. I suppose for a few smaller stumps, the hydraulic ones are ok.
