    How long would it take to grind 75-80 stumps averaging about 24-30" dia. and about 1 ft high. Stumps are mostly oak that has been cut for about 6 months and are all in the same yard. About how many can you grind before the teeth get dull and need attention? Thinking about renting a Vermeer SC 252 for the job if I can get it, this is the largest grinder that is available to me.
