    Sorry, I know this is not related to mowing...but guessing you mowers might know the answer.

    What is a normal rate per inch to have a stump ground out ??

    Thanks...

    i dunno i just know they charge way too much that's why most people never have it done. :laugh:

    same goes for tree removal. it's just too expensive for most people.

    Around here I had 3 -10" stumps ground, cost $35 each. Would have taken me well over an hr each to dig and chop out. Not a bad price.
    PS that was three years ago. May have gone up some.

    I think most have a $50-75 dollar Minimum which is what they most likely would charge you.

    Is this across the top? Large root flares? Random roots nearby? If simple I would do it for $125 if it is complicated and you want me to go deep on it we're in the $250+ range. When I rent a grinder I try to have $1k in stumps for the day and the rental is $296. For me to show up is a minimum of $100.

    At the root flares, simple, I ended up quoting $ 125 or $ 100 flush to the ground :)
    I bought a small grinder.

    actually se tthe drum over the stump set it on fire and simmer for several hours , but my neighbors will be fighting over it and I would have to clean out the bodies ( don't feel like firing up the back hoe ) .. too bad I do not have enough coyotes to feed them too them , but then again I do not want the coyotes catch the stupidity disease these people have ..
