- Remove rocks, sticks and other debris you found after removing the stump. Take your stump grinder and make sure that the stump is behind your stump grinder with its wheel raised to 4 inches above it. Remember to keep the stump grinder wheel as close as possible to the stump.
- Turn on your grinder. Lower the grinder over the stump when the wheel began to spin. Start moving the stump grinder wheel back and forth slowly. Keep doing this until the stump has been chipped about 7 inches.
- Turn off the machine and pull your grinder. Any left over woods can be disposed off and you can use it to make soil fertilizer.
