    i have a guy that has 20 small stumps that need to be removed i have to dig out with a skid steer they are planting garden. i have to rent the skidsteer wondering rough idea what would charge for that many. know going to be little more difficult then grinding. was thinking maybe $15-$20 per stump

    at 20 per stump thats 400 if you have to rent the steer for say 200 is the trouble worth it for 150 dollars after all ur fuel and other expense? think i would let someone else do it or put in the stipulation of 400 plus rental then youll make some money and probly have fun doing it lol.

    I would use a mini-ex trackhoe with rubber tracks. It would make less os a mess and you could actually dig out if needed. But this may be easier to sub to a buddy who already has the equip., you could help and you both could make a little $.
