Stump Grinding Las Vegas
To maintain the aesthetics of a landscape, most homeowners would resort to using stump grinders to reduce tree stumps to level off the lawn.
Instead of completely uprooting tree stumps from the lawn, most people find it more affordable and convenient to grind the tree stumps.
The average rental cost of stump grinders would range from $100 to $400, but could vary depending on the rental store. Other stump grinder rentals are charged per hour or per day, the minimum price hovering at a minimum of $100.
However, like other aspects of tree work, stump grinding involves a certain degree of risk.
Most stump grinders for hire are designed only for smaller stumps or rotten stumps. Rental stump grinders are unlikely to handle stumps that are 12 inches in diameter because they are usually not powerful enough to grind very far below grade.
But then if you decide to rent larger stump grinders, you could put yourself in harm’s way if you don’t have the proper protective gear or the skill to operate the bigger stump grinder.
And besides, getting it done by hiring a stump grinder expert would actually cost lesser than renting a large stump grinder.
Professional stump grinding service is either charged by time but may differ based on hours or days or longer. Costs of hiring a professional stump grinder may vary depending on the calculations based on the project.
But then if you decide to do-it-yourself, be ready for some labour intensive action and mess.
Moreover, even if you only have to deal with smaller tree stumps, doing it on your own might not result to the one you wanted to achieve.
Hiring a professional stump grinder instead of just renting a machine may be more cost efficient and you are assured of quality result.
Stump grinders are usually mounted on wheels for easy maneuvering. It has a height setting and brakes for easy side-to-side controls.
Blades that cut through the stumps are located underneath the machine. Each stump grinding blade has its own cutting capacity, which means smaller blades won’t do with bigger stumps.
The blade cuts down the wood and turns the stump into sawdust or small chops that can be used later on for mulching.
There are two ways to grind a stump, you can either go for the standard or advanced method, whichever suits your project.
The standard method involves taking out 4 to 10 inches of the stump below grade while the advanced method involves removing 20 inches of the stump below grade.
Another important thing to consider when planning to hire or rent a stump grinder is the specifications.
If you have no idea about the stump grinder specifications or what specs you need for your project, then it is advisable that you hire a professional stump grinder rather than do the project yourself.
Cutting capacity is the most important specification. Other specifications of a stump grinder are: cutter wheel, height, length, power source, weight, and width.

What Our Client's Are Saying..
" We have been using Las Vegas Tree Trimmers since we moved into our home last year. The owners before us never kept up with their landscape. We found LVTT online and they came out and did a free estimate. The price was right in our budget and they did an amazing job. We didn't even recognize our home when they were finished. Highly recommend them to all our friends and family and they continue to maintain our lawn till this day."
