    3 guys with axes chopping into the stumps on an angle ,
    hitting them like 2" below surface . probably only take 5 hours to
    chop and gather the stumps . so whatever per hour times 15

    i own a vermeer sc252 grinder and a 1" stump would be better ground out then tore out all you have to do is go straight down with the head and rake it back in and ready to seed. much cheaper and more effiecient way to go. less mess in the end and easier work to level it out.
  7. get one of these, makes life easier.

    Put a blade on your weedeater and cut them off at ground level. the rest of it will rot over the winter.

    Simple, a good sturdy tow chain and your truck. Just put it in 4 low and let it roll forward a bit and it should just pop right out.

    Do it that way and you will be finished before Christmas.

    Take the guys advice above and use a stump grinder. The correct tool makes all the difference.
