Our old mango tree stump near the external side stairs is no longer after a spot of stump grinding. We are clearing the area to make way for new side stairs.
We called in the professionals because the stump was literally petrified wood and also enormous. Jason's axe would bounce off the tree stump with hardly a dent.
I also had to get out my tape measure to measure it for the grinding quote- it was well over 1 1/2 metres wide!
Anyway, I was completely blown away by the stump grinding machine ( note to self: need to go out more).
My alternative post headings were going to be: Veni, vidi, vici or Tonka toys on steroids. Check out the images below and you'll see why.
|The stump grinding machine arriving. (sorry, photo taken through a window)|
|It was operated by remote control. The clever thing is doing a u-turn!|
|Getting ready to make mince meat out of the tree stump|
|It swept from side to side, ripping the tree stump into shreds|
|Sated and crawling away to its master|
|Lots of mulch left behind to spread onto the garden beds.|
The mob we used were fantastic. The quote was competitive, they scheduled the job quickly and best of all, they arrived when they said they would. You really can't get better than that.
If you are located in the Brisbane area and need stump grinding, their details can be found here.
On another topic, Jason was chuffed with all your well wishes for his 40th Birthday. He really was. He had a terrific day off - lots of fun being a hoon. xx
