I am in the market for a stump grinder. I am tired of going and renting grinders that are junk. It seems that every time I rent one it has some sort of problem. The one I rented Friday the engine was worn out and had no compression. I am looking at buying and do not know which route to go. I like the Rayco 1625. It is a nice compact machine that will go through a 36" gate. I am also considering getting one that will go on the front of a skid steer. I also like the idea of the ones that go on the mini skid steers. What is everyone using and what are you finding works best for you?
