Some safety tips for a great stump removal experience

Stump grinding has its safety issues but with experience and planning your stump grinding can be a very positive and safe experience.

There are three main things to remember when stump grinding:

  1. Stump grinding uses a large petrol powered blade to grind the stump down to small woodchips. Occupants of the property, especially children, need to be kept well away from both the machinery and the work zone.
  2. The stump grinder is quite a loud machine and requires ear muffs to operate it. For the safety of your hearing please keep a reasonable distance away from the machine at all times.  Pets can also be scared so best to secure your animals well away from the machinery so they are not frightened or injured.
  3. Please consider water pipes, irrigation lines, pool plumbing, telephone and power before planning to remove a stump. If you think any of these services or pipes may be in the same location as the tree stump, please investigate this before we commence stump grinding.
  4. We suggest moving your vehicles away from the area as sometimes wood chips or stones can become airborne and we don’t want to see any paint damage to your car.
