No wonder they call it Stumptown, Portland has stumps everywhere and YardRents delivery is always free. That makes this tool perfect for removing stumps of all sizes. Grind out a 2-foot wide stump in less than 30 minutes, all without breaking a sweat.

This stump grinder is powerful, easy to use and designed to maneuver in and around the average homeowner's property. At 34 inches wide, this machine can fit through standard backyard gates and openings. Since it runs on tracks, this stump grinder can access nearly any part of your property.

This stump grinder is completely self-propelled and is operated using two joysticks. Simply position the machine in front of the stump and use the joystick to control the stump grinding head. It can grind down stumps that are nearly 3 feet tall and chase stumps and roots down into the ground as deep as 12.5 inches below grade.

Be very careful operating this machines on slopes since it is not designed to operate on slopes greater than 18 degrees. Make sure to have unobstructed access to your stump. This machine weighs 1200 lbs so it can not be lifted up stairs or over barriers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can break while I am renting this machine?
The grinding teeth are the most likely item to break while using this machine. They are designed to grind wood, but if they come into contact with rock, concrete or metal then they can break. We inspect the teeth with you at the time of delivery and we inspect them again when we pick the machine up again. If a tooth is cracked or chipped then we will simply add the cost of a tooth to your rental order.

Can it drive up stairs?
No. This strump grinder can be backed up small hills, but it is not designed to be driven up stairs.

Do I need to fill the tank up with gas when I'm finished?
Yes. The equipment arrives with a full tank of gas. Please fill the tanks full of fuel when you are done running the equipment. If you have your own gas then please avoid using fuel that more than 1 month old. It's a very good idea to account for fuel consumption while planning your equipment rental project. Feel free to pre-order fuel with your reservation. This allows us to bring extra gas at the time of delivery. You will only be charged for the fuel that you use (in increments of 1/4 gallon).


The unique track design of this self propelled stump grinder allows for zero turn capability, provides increased stability on side hills, eliminates tire ruts in your yard, and operates on wet/soft ground conditions. All of this allows you to access the most challenging stumps.

This stump grinder has an easy to use control system that offers smooth operation and fewer levers and knobs than conventional stump grinders. Two simple controls operate all traction and grinder functions. The primary traction controller controls the left and right drive tracks and allows the operator to drive and position the machine (left/right/forward/reverse). The joystick controls the stump grinder power head and allows the operator to sweep, lift or lower and engage the grinding head.

The offset cutting head provides the operator with excellent visibility of the stump.

The fully hydraulic operation of this grinder allows for very granular positioning control and reduces the likelihood of maintenance problems while at your worksite.

I'm a new homeowner / DIY YouTube watching home project guy. I would say I'm a just getting my feet went with home and yard maintenance and I don't have a lot of money to pay somebody else to do the work. YardRents made my experience a breeze from beginning to end. They have an easy and helpful website where you can reserve online and watch tool tutorials. Free delivery and pick up so you don't have to. During the delivery window time they sent a text to let me know the exact time they'll be there. So Dan shows up and was awesome! Super friendly guy and knowledgeable about the tools. I got a Pole Saw and a Stump Grinder, which were in great condition and practically new! He gave me all the safety wear too! I just signed on his iPad and a receipt was emailed to me instantly. I was finished with everything in two hours. Dan sent a text for a pick up time and when he arrived he made sure my experience was perfect. From beginning to end, YardRents does it right!

What a service! Order a machine on the web with a two hour window and it just shows up at your door and you are given brief instructions. All of the paperwork is done on an I-pad and the receipts just show up in your e-mail. Twice I have rented the stump grinder to remove some pesky stumps from my yard. This thing tore through them with ease and soon the stumps were gone. They they just showed up and picked up the machine. This is truly customer service at its best. I have used Yard Rents twice now and they are the best yard equipment rental service around.

I rented a stump grinder this morning from YardRents and could not have asked for a better experience. My next door neighbor was outside and commented on how good the customer service was. I had no prior experience with this type of equipment, but after a few hours there is now a big crater where a monster stump used to be.

Absolutely a wonderful experience. Great communication all the way around, delivered on time with a phone call ahead of time to say they are on their way. Very professional and friendly, helped us get the stump grinder in place and not only showed us how to use it but watched to make sure we were comfortable with it before he left. Came back when he said he would, took the time to go around the back side of the property and loaded the machine up. Absolutely no hassle, wish all businesses operated this way! Great experience would highly recommend (and we are picky).

So far, we've rented the wood chipper and stump grinder combo, and deck sanders. How can you beat excellent service, free scheduled pickup and delivery, and equipment that is in good shape. Plus, for the jobs we've done, the traditional rental places aren't even price competitive, forgetting the fact that they have the added hassle of not offering delivery. Yardrents all the way. Just another reason for out of towners to be jealous of PDX. Now, if YardRents only had a concrete grinder...

I Had a Great Experience With YardRents. I needed to rototill my backyard, which I have never done before. By default, I went to Home Depot, but my experience with their rental department did not make me want to give them my business. I googled rototiller rental and YardRents popped up. I was first impressed that they provided delivery and pick-up services. Leading up to the rental day, I had questions, which Dan fielded and was very helpful with. On the day of the rental, Dan made sure that I familiarized myself with the machine and felt confident operating it. He provided me with his phone number in case I had any problems at all with the rental. I was able to complete the project early, and after contacting him, he showed up on his way to dinner in order to pick up the equipment early. I hope that YardRents continues to do business in the Portland Metro area. They are a great resource.

The best service ever!!. Now there is no excuse for not tackling those projects around the house. I will use this service again as soon as I can. Delivery and pick up on a Sunday... come on??? really? who else is gonna do that? Don't break your back digging out stumps when you can get the grinder. You will thank me!

Let me join the chorus of high praise for YardRents. I rented a stump grinder, and even though I had no prior experience with something like that, it was pretty easy. (I had to be slow and careful because there was a piece of metal embedded in the stump.) My neighbor commented on how good the customer service was.

My neighbor told me about YardRents and I thought I'd check them out. I had 2 tree stumps that needed to be removed. YardRents had a stump grinder available for cheaper than other machine rental companies around. What sold me was the free delivery and pick up! I would have had to borrow a friends truck otherwise. What's better is that when Loren dropped off the machine, he offered to go ahead and grind the stumps himself. It took him 20 minutes and the job was done! Amazing! I highly recommend YardRents to anyone.
David C. - May 15, 2014
I had a great experience with YardRents. The online rental was quick and easy , the equipment was high quality and in great shape and delivered to the work site. It's great to not have to worry about transporting the equipment. I had an extremely large stump that needed to be removed. I knew this stump would require a heavy duty grinder to get through it, so I rented the Toro stump grinder and it tore through the stump with minimal effort. The person who delivered the equipment (Dallas) was nice, professional, and clearly explained how to use the equipment. I had a pleasant experience and will use YardRents again for future projects.

I found this company a year ago when I needed to get rid of a stump in my front yard. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical that I would be able to rent a powerful large piece of equipment online. As I clicked through the site I kept waiting for a message telling me that I would have to pick a date two or three weeks out but that didn't happen. I was able to order the equipment the day before I needed it and there were several convenient time windows to work with. It all seemed way to easy. I received a text the next morning giving me an ETA on when they would show up to drop off the stump grinder. The van showed up on time and I was impressed with how new the equipment was. I received a tutorial on using the grinder and the stump was gone in less than an hour. Sent a text back letting them know I was ready to have it picked up and they arrived in less than an hour to pick it up. One signature on the iPad and that was it. It could not have been easier. I own a large truck and a utility trailer so I could easily rent equipment at any of the other equipment rental companies. With YardRents, I don't have to waste an hour or two hooking up the trailer, loading the equipment, worrying about an accident while towing the equipment, driving round trip to the rental company and waiting in line to check-out or check-in the equipment. I have used YardRents two times now and each time everything went flawlessly.

Your stump grinder was awesome. Based on my prior experience with "the other guys" rental equipment (rhymes with Gnome Repo), I planned 4 hours to take out 6 medium stumps. The equipment was in such good condition (sharp teeth!) and so easy to maneuver that I was done in half the time I planned.
Kyle M. - Oct 21, 2014
These guys were great, specifically Ian who helped me with my stump grinding project. This is such a great service these guys are providing. I will definitely use them again for my rental needs!
Kat K. - Oct 21, 2014
I love YardRents! We've rented several pieces of equipment from them (a chipper, a stump grinder and a rototiller) and are continually impressed with their service. Communication is excellent: I always get a text when Ian is on his way and a text when he's headed back to pick up the equipment. They show you how to use everything and are always available to answer questions or swing by and fix something on the rare occasion when a piece of equipment stops working. Way better than renting from Home Depot: HD doesn't deliver (trying getting a stump grinder into the back of your car!) and isn't going to come to your house to show you how to use the equipment specifically for your project.

Prior To Using the Stump Grinder Rental - Self Propelled

Saw off as much of the stump as possible so that you are only using the stump grinder on the base of the stump where a saw can't be operated.

Clear the work area of all foreign objects such as sticks, stones, wires, etc.

Be sure to remove any debris that may also be embedded in the tree stump itself.
