    I think it would be cheaper to use a chain saw, those small carbide saw blades cost around $12.00 (x11) here. Either that or rent a stump grinder. Loose the open toed sandals please.

    Kind of nerve wracking not having a guard over that chain drive system. Evidently they've never seen what happens to flesh that gets pulled into a chain sprocket before, and it shows.

    Hoooweeeee!
    Anyone else notice the chain clip put on backwards? Anyone else ever seen the aftermath of a chain coming apart at speed because someone put the clip on backwards?

    The safety issues aside, I'm looking at the practicality of powering something like this with the little 4 1/2" angle grinder.
    A lot of things are made from these diminutive little tools that are just not practical to use.
    Even if the clip was on correctly, which it is not and a chain guard in place to cover the chain which may have been added after the testing of the machine for all we know. the amount of time to effectively grind a small stump of the size shown in the video to the point it would no longer be of any consequences in the yard, a person could almost drive 100 mile round trip rent a stump grinder grind the stump and return the machine before the angle grinder thing could complete the job because the stump needs to be ground far enough below the surface to allow the lawn to cover it
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
