DR Stump Grinder and Other Good Stump Grinders
If you have recently bought a home, you may face a task of grinding stumps of trees around your realty. This may appear to be a tough job. This is where the Dr Stump Grinder steps forward, featured with durable carbide-tipped teeth, a rugged steel frame, and an outstanding Subaru engine.
From the very beginning of your use you’ll applaud to the perfect 9 carbide-tipped replaceable teeth, supplying unmatched rotation inertia. A protective steel shroud prevents the user from occasional residues of timber and rocks, which can otherwise hit your head or breast. You’ll be surprised to know that the teeth are covered with carbide, which miners use for drilling through boulders.
Large tires make another good-for-life feature of the Dr Stump Grinder: they provide for good clearance over woodchips and bumpy terrains. See for yourself: the size of the wheels makes 15″ x 4.75″.
A drum of 4.5″ and a hand brake lock a wheel to provide a pivot point for progressive and flawless cutting motion.
Subaru engines are next to none in matters of durability of work. Dr Stump Grinders have the engines with overhead cam technology resembling the one used in the famous auto trademark. If you have ever driven a Suba, you understand the talk. If not, you need to try it once.

Can I Find a Stump Grinder Teeth for Sale?
In many modern models teeth are replaceable within 15-20 minutes. But if your model style is old, finding the right stump grinder teeth for sale can be a task. If this is the case, check manuals and technical forums. Your model can easily appear compatible with some other teeth.
For example, friends of mine had a Vermeer 252 and found a well-priced set of Greenteeth stump grinder teeth for sale a couple of years ago. They did a research and found out this could be an option. Interestingly, they report a large difference in productiveness and much less effort for changing teeth, as now they only have to loosen the dull tooth and change the edge for 1/3. Another pro is that they feel like machine has started to wear off less.
I know some people can disagree with such a point of view, because Greenteeth are known to be much more aggressive. But this is their experience. They think it can be due to the auto sweep feature of their stump grinder, which helps keeping the teeth from biting too much.
They also admitted that after having used the Greenteeth set for a few years they have been recommended to use a set of a smaller size by the manufacturers.
Therefore, be inventive when looking for a set of stump grinder teeth for sale.
