    Now this is a stump grinder. any time a machine can tear chunks instead of chips or chips instead of dust and do it in a reasonably safe and quick manner it will get my vote. Not that my votes ever count for much
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    Nice!

    Where do I place my order for one of these? Or do you make housecalls?

    I wonder, though, if the cutting flywheel can be made from an old automobile disc brake?

    Not sure you'd want to make that out of a casting?

    I think I am figuring out where my comments go, but in the world where I do it correctly, I thanked you (Hoosiersmoker) for that reality check!

    Plus, I'm waiting to see any feedback on funforall69's suggestion for using a flywheel.
