            Call around two places around here are like $180 and one is $97, If you rent on Friday after 3pm you get it till Monday 8am
            100 is a lot of stumps you would put a lot of wear on grinder.

            What about renting a tow behind?

              Thanks for the offer Patrick.but I am in north ga .
              Its very hilly and dont think that I could maneuver a tow behind thru the lots. I might not even get the deal though. I just panicked . a realtor called me and asked me if i could do it. I have a hard time saying no. probably should not have said yes.

                How big of a unit will you need? Can you get by with a smaller one the size of a mower?

                  Mine is a Vermeer SC252. One of the things I was looking for was one that you don't have to man handle. You might want to look into Vermeer line. For a few jobs just rent one. Here is mine

                    How often were you doing stump grinding before you decided to go ahead and buy one? How often have you found yourself using it since you bought it and do you feel it's worthwhile to buy?

                      Before I would schedule all stumps to be grind at one time. Usually setting them off as long as I could. Now that I have my own grinder I am finding business everywhere. I have partnered up with tree companies, the best thing I have ever done was partnered with concrete companies. When new concrete slabs are being laid down they have to remove the stumps. I get these jobs, I bill the concrete companies they mark up my services and get paid. I don't have to deal with customers.

                        That is a genius idea! How did you come up with that one?

                          Talking to a customer, who had a slab laid down this past winter he told me the concrete company hired a 3rd party company to grind it out. This is a way to keep revenue coming in during the winter time.
