The radio remote tracked stump grinder can go most places!

I use a Predator radio remote tracked stump grinder which will fit through most garden gates. The machine narrows down to a minimum of 26 inches (66 cm) which enables it to get into most gardens. However, if your gate is particularly small and sometimes remove the fence panel or coming through a neighbours garden.

The predator tracked stump grinder has a very low ground pressure and will cause minimal damage to your lawn, I take extreme care when I am working on other people’s property. You can watch the video below to see the process of grinding out a tree stump. The tree stump is ground down well below ground level and in most cases, the whole tree stump is removed, which leaves you with some fine chip which can then be composted and used at a later date.

I work in gardens, building sites, golf courses and for local authorities etc, in fact wherever the offending tree stump maybe. I am fully insured and have comprehensive public liability insurance with the NFU.

If you have any questions or require quote or any information, please do not hesitate to contact me on (07971) 648879

    Roy did a brilliant job removing a nuisance tree stump in my garden that had been left in place by the previous homeowner. His professional machine made quick work of a large trunk/stump and he left the area clean and tidy. Very professional and polite, Roy was a pleasure to deal with. Lucy, Essex

    I am considering removal of a tree stump from my garden, and was most impressed with the machinery which you have on your website. I do not want to cause a lot of damage to my garden when removing the tree stump and your video re-assured me that you would be able to carefully and successfully complete the task. Thank you Alan

      Thank you for your question, Alan, I would be very pleased to help you I always take great care and respect when I am on a customers property. The tree stump grinder is on tracks so it is very lightweight when travelling across a lawn and causes minimal damage. These feel free to call me on (07971) 648879 when you are ready.

    For any of you who are undecided let me quickly sway you. I operated an established tree surgery firm and i hand Roy’s number out to every single customer who enquires, knowing full well that he carries out a superb job going above and beyond. Couldn’t recommend this chap any more.

    Roy did a good job of removing a tree stump which had to come out so I can make the garden look nicer. I recommend him for any tree stumping you may need removing. Many thanks

    I would be grateful if you could quote for the following:

    There are three tree stumps, I believe all are field maple. The larger tree has split into three main trunks but has a common root. The approximate dimensions for this tree are as follows
    trunk 1 is 50cm diameter
    trunk 2 is 50 cm diameter
    trunk 3 is 38cm diameter
    height of trunk is 65cm max

    The smaller tree stumps are close together and the size is:
    stump 1 is 27cm diameter
    height is 18cm

    stump 2 is 23cm x 40cm diameter
    height is 7cm

    We had multiple tree stumps removed and where super happy with the job , first time using Roy or any grinding company and would absolutely recommend! No messing on prices or “oh but I’m going to have to charge you extra for this ect “what he quoted was what we paid and was cheaper by some way than another quote we had and his machine got in the garden with a super narrows access . If you’ve found this review you’ve found the right chap for the job !

        Good morning Christine,

        I have sent you an email, it’s probably worth checking your spam folder and sometimes my emails go to the spam folder for some reason.

        Have a good day and kindest regards,

    Roy did a brilliant job removing 4 very large tree stumps shortly after they had been felled last week.
    Access was not easy and our garden is split level but Roy managed access with minimal disruption and completed the task at really short notice for us.
    Communication was great throughout and I can only recommend Roy and the service he provides.
    Cheers Roy.

    Just wanted to leave a note to say how happy we are with Roy’s work. He left the area tidy, treated my garden with respect, very reasonably priced and polite. Wouldnt have wanted anyone else doing the job!

    Hi Roy do you have an email address I can send a photo of a tree stump that we wish to have removed? I say this because the tree stump is embedded within a raised flowerbed. Kind regards Alex

    Roy got me out of a sticky situation today. Needed a tree stump removed that was right up against a neighbour’s fence. It was stopping my builder from progressing. Roy came out and sorted it within a day of first contact. Did a brilliant job with no damage to the fence. Friendly, professional and super helpful. Highly recommended.
