FAQs

How Much Will It Cost?

Our prices start from $45, the price will depend on the size of the stump and ease of access. We provide a free no obligation on site quote and in most cases if accepted we can do the job on the spot. Simply give as call to arrange a suitable time.

Any Tips On Reducing The Costs?

Make sure the stump is cut as low to the ground as possible, as a result we do not have to grind as much. Note that we always carry a chainsaw and may reduce the height of the stump before starting anyway. Not all stumps need to be ground down to 75cm below the surface. If you only need to re-grass you may only want to go down 20 – 30cm. We always try to leave the area as tidy as possible. This generally means raking the wood chips and dirt into a pile, however if you’re prepared to do this let us know as it can save us quite a bit of time on larger jobs. Make sure the area is free of obstacles, this may include stones, pipes, branches etc.

Are You Insured?

Yes we have public liability insurance to the sum of $2,000,000.

What Specialist Machines Do You Use?

Our 4 machines can be seen below, they allow us to tackle stumps of any size and location. Our 2018 Rayco 74hp is powered by a massive 3.8L Cummins engine that generates peak torque of 400 NM. Compared to the competition, there is nothing that can match it.

Do I Need To Be Home?

Provided we can access the property and have a clear description of the job you do not need to be home.

Can The Area Be Replanted?

Yes, in most cases the area can be replanted. Please note that the wood chips and sawdust left over from the stump are rich in carbon, as the wood breaks down it will absorb the nitrogen from the surrounding soil. We recommend removing as much waste as possible before replanting or using a nitrogen rich fertiliser.

Will The Machinery Rip Up The Lawn?

No, we take precautions to reduce the impact. Our wheeled grinders both use soft tyres which helps to reduce impact on your lawn.

How Soon Can We Do The Job?

We can generally do within 24 hours of receiving the call.

Do I Have To Clean Up?

No, the site will be left tidy.

Can You Supply Topsoil And Re-Grass?

Yes we can do this, additional fees may apply.

I had Paul around today to remove a stump after moving into a new property with several old stumps . Paul was incredibly efficient and reasonably priced. He offered lots of expertise around tree types and root systems that may affect building structures as well as recommendations for green waste removal. Well worth the investment to get someone like this around and he was a great guy too. I am new to the area and wanted to take the time to write this review to Highly recommend Paul in case there are others wondering which company to go with!

100% recommended. Great communication and nothing was too much trouble - it was really awkward for Paul to get his kit to the stump - needed to go right round the house and through a garage - but Paul found a way and had it done in no time. Thanks again.

Paul was absolutely amazing from the time he came on site to do a viewing to the time he completed the job. He was extremely careful moving around the property or near the house with the machinery. Paul was very meticulous in his work, making sure the pulp from the stumps was spread out. He left the site very clean afterwards.
