Vermeer sc252 stumpgrinder questions..

    I just got a used vermeer sc252, 2002 model with a new kohler 27hp engine..

    I had a pto grinder on my tractor but it messed up the pto and did 3000 worth of damage so i decided to go with a self propelled grinder...

    I have a few questions regarding the teeth,,,need to know how far they
    should extend out from the pockets they are about 1 1/2 inch now, also need to know what torq setting to use when tightening the pockets..

    Any tips on removing teeth would help also, no problem on removing bolts but had one heck of a time getting the teeth loose from the pockets, much wd40 maybe there is a trick to this...

    Any help or suggestions on this grinder would be appreciated, did thousands of stumps with my shaver sc25 on tractor but this kind of grinder is all new to me, checked all the belts yesterday, they look good, don't see any other problems..

    Have emailed vermeer for a handbook on grinder, that should help, and have ordered new teeth over ebay, should be in next week..

    Thx much..:):)

    I have the same one. If you go to their web site, you can down load a owners book.
