Should you still consider removing an old stump even in winter? Well, if you want to use that area after the cold season is done, then you should. You have two options, you can either have a professional in stump grinding Leichhardt or do the task yourself.
If you are considering on removing the stump yourself, you need one of the most necessary tools to make the removal effectively and that is a stump grinder. Stump grinders are pretty costly and if you only have a single stump to remove, you can just rent a grinder which weights around 1,000 pounds and the cost range from $100-$200 depending on the company you want to rent it from.
The challenge with renting a stump grinder though is the challenges that you may face especially if you have not done this before. The equipment is heavy and you will have to wear protective glasses and gear as you can expect debris to fly everywhere. You will also need a couple more equipment such as a chainsaw and rake in case the grinder is not able to remove everything.
If you want to get rid of the stump without possibly hurting yourself, just hire a professional. It may be a bit more costly than doing it yourself, but hiring a professional is more practical especially if you are considering on doing it this winter. Ask the company how much they charge since more companies consider the size and width of the stump to determine the prices they will ask their clients. But once you have settled everything, expect for the stump to be grinded right away which will give you a better-looking yard that you can use in the spring.
