Time Test – Small Tractor Grinding a Huge Stump

Thank you [Applause] Hey it's Brock here from Rock Hill Farms And today we're gonna grind this big Stump out with the bomolite 3p 24 stump Grinder on my John Deere 2038r I've only Got a couple hours to do it in so I Thought today I For this video I'm going to show exactly How long it takes now I think I'll Actually start the timer when I start The grinder but the first thing I want To do is cut this off down lower Because for whatever reason this stump Got cut off knee high and that's a lot Of extra grinding and a lot of extra Wear on the teeth So I'm gonna get the saw out get this Cut down and see how quick we can go Through this Been pretty consistent about three pulls To start this Cutting it off it's actually not any fun Kind of sucks actually [Music] For you guys that follow the channel you Know that I always wear my chainsaw Chaps when I'm cutting and I don't know What happened today but I was halfway Through this before I realized I didn't Have them on so always wear your chaps If I can figure out how to do it I'm Going to put a counter on the screen Showing exactly how long it takes to cut

This down and I'm not going to skip any Footage So you might see that timer running Really fast if I speed up the video Took about four minutes to cut the stump Off No replacement for experience I've cut Probably two dozen of these big stumps This size three four foot Five six foot whatever they were I've Cut a lot of them off low like that now I used to think of it as a big deal and That was not really a big deal [Music] [Applause] That is always so weird this has a slit In it that seems like it's filled with Foam I mean how in the world did that Occur Okay 45 inches here 44 inches here And of course our grind area goes out Quite a ways past that This one's a little bit unusual because It's like the dirt is mounted up around It So It's a lot more grinding than most Stumps this size Because Going below ground level here still Leaves us sticking up above ground level Here feels like we need to grind off Foot and a half a stump here to get

Truly below grade over here Foreign [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] Foreign [Applause] Foreign [Applause] Foreign [Applause] [Music] Foreign [Music] Foreign Thank you [Applause] [Music] [Applause] Thank you [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] Foreign Guys That's a 45 inch wide stump in 45 Minutes now most of all this area like Here's ground level And we are We're good five six inches below grade There's a couple spots That aren't quite as deep this is only a

Couple inches below ground level out in The middle but it's because the dirt was Domed up around this stump so I would Have to remove all this dirt that was Domed up because the the tractor's Sitting a little bit uphill and then the Stump grinder is trying to come down That angle doesn't let me get quite as Deep so something to be aware of if You're going out and you're bidding a Stump and you see that the dirt's Mounded up around it you're gonna have To remove all that dirt around it and It's going to add a lot more time now This is on my own property I'm just Gonna I've got a big dirt pile up by the Pond I'm just gonna throw some some dirt Over this and we'll be good to go but It's just something to keep in mind I've Never ground a stump for a customer that Had dirt mounted up around it that much But I think there's more setup time than There is actual time grinding out the Stump A 45 minutes is not bad so if you've got The machine set up and you had say a Dozen of these to do You could do a lot in a day maybe two Days to do all of them Anyway I appreciate you taking time to Watch this video I'll put links on the Screen to a couple more of our videos I'll see you next time
