im thinking about getting into the stump grinding and wondering what the going rate is for grinding stumps.

Here is a quote from this post.

"I have a set drop fee based on mileage to job site. Min. of $40.00. And then its a price per stump. For an average size stump (size of a 5 gal bucket) no more than 6" above ground level the price is $10.00 each stump. Additional charges for extra wood more than 6" above ground level, roots, mounds, trees to maneuver around, slopes, rocky soils, etc.

A job that is 10 mile away that has 10 average stumps with no additions would cost $150.00 for me to grind and would take me approx. 45 min once I started grinding."
