Best Practices for Stump Grinder Operations in Arboriculture

Member: $55.00
Non-Member: $85.00

Stump grinding usually falls to the least trained person on the crew. An untrained person running a heavy, expensive machine - usually alone - will quickly find there is much more to safe stump grinding operations than simply unloading it and starting it up. The Best Practices of Stump Grinding Operations in Arboriculture is the missing link between safe, productive stump grinding, and lost time/revenue due to property damage or injuries. This guidebook reveals essential information about stump grinding operations that untrained personnel would not consider: grinding operations on a slope, traveling or moving the grinder over snow or mud, the care and feeding of grinder knives to prevent injuries, preventing property damage, grinding near underground utilities, etc. Send your newly trained stump grinder operator into the field with all the tools they will need to complete the job to the customer's satisfaction as well as the bottom line.
