My name is Dave and I have been mowing lawns for 4 years. This year i started to branch into landscaping (planting trees and gardens, and cobble stone walkways and garage entrances. This has been a part time job for me, but I am looking into going full time. My area has a lot of people mowing lawns and doing basic landscaping work, so I am looking into another option to offer people. I have found stump grinding equipment and am trying to find a way to get the value of the equipment to make sure I am getting a good deal. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go to find this information?

Hi Dave,

For the stump grinding equipment, have you looked on craigslist or even ebay to see if you can find other similar models to compare price?

I have, everything I found was higher than what was being asked so I called a dealer, they were lower? I guess people just throw out prices. Thanks for the reply

You can also consider renting a stump grinder, especially if you can line up a couple of stump grinding jobs together on one day.
