I have these two to get rid of to make way for a patio.
No idea, I'm stumped

How far down will it actually get me?
Also, would I need to take some more off to get the grinder onto it?
We hired a stump grinder plus operator - as part of a larger operation - vanished over a cup of coffee
Irrelevant. Anything that involved the purchase or hire of industrial tools just needs to happen.
Personally, I have taken out deep(ish) roots and usually just dug them out as much as possible and back filled with soil.
Just had a look. Deffo getting one of those bad boys in.
Another vote for a stump grinder.
Me and my dad removed similar with a car and a tow rope. Needed to dig a little to get a good attachment to the stump and then pulled out with the force of 200 horses
At least he is con(i)fering with GC
That last one Rousey......sheesh
Excellent idea. I just need to knock my garage down and reverse my van to the back of my garden.
I believe the documentary 'Caddyshack' , whilst related to a slightly different issue, took the right approach. There'll be little in the way of stump left.
Failing that, stump grinder. Tried the hole drill and fill with petrol method, it was slow and no where near as rewarding as expected.
God loves a trier, I'd even (l)arch over backwards to help if I could be arsed
I had to burrow a foot deep hole into an oak tree the other side of the garden for a concrete post.
Firget I said anything it will look great when it all spruced up
Leaf him alone!
these are your guys! very cheap too
I could get them in but I don't think I would be very poplar with the Missus
Stump grinders can be big - you can't always fit them down the sides of a house.
At least there wasnt for me over here - the smallest was still intended for forestry applications!!
That's probably an easier job in fairness
We needed a metre width to get it down the side of ours, they're huge
I think I have about 900mm but will double check tonight.
A chainsaw might be able to make short work of them. At least to get them below a level where they are an issue.
If you have any patience, you could dig down round them and start to saw through the individual roots. Will be time-consuming of course.
Yes I've kind of started to do that but you don't realise how deep these roots go until you start.
Where's an Eastern European when you need one
