How the heck are you going to fix that?
Where's the rest of it?

The owner bought new axle, disc (came as 1 piece) with the blocks, cutting teeth, bearings. Basically an all new assembly that came in pieces, 2 shipments and we waited 6weeks for the parts.
It's all back together and in use now, next weekend when I see him I told him I want to check, make sure everything is still tight. I used lock tight on the bolts that hold the teeth and blocks on.
That cutting wheel is driven by 2 v belts though a centrifugal clutch, looks like a 1to1 ratio, so it turns at engine RPM, pretty fast.

I didn't even know they made stump grinders with that small an engine. Must take a while on a decent size stump.

Sure makes one think about where the rest of it went.I have my home made stump grinder mounted on my Massey GC2300 and always make sure no one is around or even close to where the debri is flying.I've made my guard that covers the wheel and teeth out of 1/8" steel then I have a piece of rubber tire sandwiched between and a 1/4" steel outer layer.Hopefully if anything ever breaks/fly's apart that it'll be enough to stop anything from hitting the tractor or me.Mine runs at about 3500 rpm Larry

The broken off part was never found, it would of had 1 set of blocks and teeth on it.
The guard that goes around the wheel is all dented up, it's got to be 3/16" steel, smaller than 1/4".
The throttle cable was off and the control on the motor was locked on full.
Plus the engine kill wires are off it, so to shut it off when he was using it he would put a block of wood on the handle so the cutter wheel is spinning full speed up in the air, then close the choke to shut it off. ??????
Can you imagine how much that thing must of been vibrating, shacking till he got it shut off. Lucky no one got hurt here.
Any way now he has his throttle fixed, engine kill hooked back up and the deadman switch working the way they should.

Glad no one was hurt. Thanks for sharing.

I rented a grinder last fall, and did about 40 stumps ranging from 5" up to 30".
What a workout.
I'd hate to do that for a living.

Good to hear you got him working safely Doug.
