    How much would you all charge on this huge job? Its for 1,181 inches across of stump grinding. Chips go back into the holes too.

    It depends how they were measured, the finish grade, and how deep.
    I have had stumps like white pines that measure 12" and had to grind a 6-8 ft
    area to get all the surface roots. Also bigger stumps are sometimes left higher off the ground not to mention you can grind 10 1ft stumps in the time it takes to grind a 4ft stump. Measure the stump including surface roots,Then note the finish grade and figure on grinding so you end up with 3-4 inches of topsoil cover min. Fugure $20-25 per foot of dia. depending on rocks plus cleanup
    and thats a low liability job. If you have to put up plywood to protect cars, pools and busy roads figure that also.

    Pretty well said on the measurment aspect. Ive ground stumps that were 24" or whatever, and have had the same 8'-10' diameter hole Lawn and Stump Speaks of. Our price is $3.00 per inch. We measure right at the base, where the lawn meets the stump. If it pulls the lawn upward, we take a rough estimate, and go from there.

    For a job of that magnitude, we would surely work with you on the price, as some of the cost is getting to the job, setting up, ect ect ect....

    Im guessing if all stumps were accesable, and there were no hills, or anything in the way, your looking at something near a $2500-$3000 job.
