Stump Grinding on the Sunshine Coast
Inexpensive and efficient stump grinding. Approximate prices provided over the phone so call now on 1300 720 363.
Pictured to the right is our Kanga stump grinder, it has Honda 690cc V-Twin engine direct drive and can fit through 1m gates. It has a seperate engine to drive the hydraulics so it's pretty efficient at removing stumps. This one has been modified to deliver approx 30% more power than the standard ones from Kanga.
Stump grinding debris is raked back over the hole, it's a mixture of sawdust and soil and can be used as mulch. We dont take this away with us unless specified prior.
In the 12 second time lapse video below you'll see a large gum tree stump being ground down to ground level. You'll also notice how the machine can grind whilst being driven, this helps in cutting roots, making small trenches and generally smoothing off level with grade or a slope.
In the 4 minute video below you'll see a close up of how it works in detail, check it out.
Recently we changed the cutting head system over to the Multi-tip system and fitted a new Honda GX690 engine. The video below shows the comparison before and after, the machine's performance has improved even more and the time to change teeth over plus tools to do it has dropped considerably, see for yourself this advanced cutting system and new engine.
Underground Services - Pipes Cables Drains
Some underground services that could be nearby are:-
- Water mains
- Gas mains
- Telecommunication cables
- Storm water drains and pipes
- Septic grids and drains
Whilst we take care and assess each situation no responsibility will be accepted for damage to underground services. Whilst services like Dial Before You Dig and council records are available they dont in all instances show exactly where those service are and at times show nothing at all. If you are totally unsure then you'll need to contract a pipe location organisation etc who can test to locate the services as well as the approximate depth. Often as houses age and maintenance takes place service are replaced and moved no longer where they were say 30 years ago.
Stump grinding and termites
Stump grinding is no guarantee that termites will not infest the area as in many instances, roots, debri or timber may remain in the ground. We recommend you to consult a pest controller.
When large trees are in close proximity to house or structures it is likely that roots will be in contact with the slab or even beneath it. As it's a round cutter wheel with guards and belts it's unlikely that all the stump will be removed leaving timber which termites can be attracted to close to the house. It's important you have it treated, or perhaps consider using an excavator which might be able to pull the stump and roots out. Treatment should consist of using a long probe to inject soil nearby too as getting the poison to travel in dead timber is near impossible.
