The Importance Of Stump Grinder Maintenance


Stump grinder and stump grinder teeth maintenance is a subject that cannot be overstated in it’s importance. Whether you have recently purchased a new stump grinder or if you are just looking to prolong the life of an old one, making sure your machine is maintained is key to performance and longevity.

Stump Grinder Teeth Maintenance

Stump grinder teeth are obviously important to your stump grinder. Well maintained stump grinder teeth can help the performance of your machine immensely. Making sure that the teeth are sharpened and rotated when need be are crucial to stump grinder performance. It is key to understand that since the center of the grinding wheel does most of the grinding while the outer teeth mostly move the material that is left, it is of the utmost importance to check and maintain those center cutting or grinding teeth. When the time comes, definitely replace those old teeth with some stump grinder replacement teeth provided by Border City Tools.

Keeping The Wheel Balanced

Make sure the wheel is balanced. This will ensure optimized performance of your stump grinder and cut back on the frequency of breaking your machine or any unwanted accidents while getting rid of particularly tough stumps. Make sure that whatever you have on one side of the wheel is done on the other.

One More Thing About Stump Grinder Teeth

Something else to consider about the inner stump grinder teeth, is that the bolt heads holding them in place will actually wear down quicker than the stump grinder or stump cutter teeth themselves. This is important because if the bolt heads wear down too much, you’re going to have a heck of a time getting the stump grinder teeth off with a wrench. Chances are they will need to be cut off with a torch or drilled out which can put unnecessary stress on your machine.
