In most cases, a skid steer stump bucket, or stump grinder, would be ideal for removing medium-sized stumps.

Skid Steer Stump Bucket

This is the heaviest, most rugged-built stump bucket on the market! We can say this because it’s 60” design delivers maximum leverage and breakout force, plus the bottom curve design gives added leverage and prying force. The HD cast excavator-style teeth are pin on replaceable and serrated side teeth help to grip and rip stumps. You won’t believe how easily and completely the stump comes out! The four HD attached plate-to-bucket gussets are there for incredible durability and a 1” thick cutting edge and 1” steel sides give added strength. You’ve never seen stump removal power quite like this before.

Skid Steer Stump Grinder

Its unique design cuts 10” below ground, meaning this stump is totally and completely gone. The powerful direct drive delivers faster cuts and a 24” cutting wheel with 34 carbide teeth means that stump doesn’t stand a chance. Because 100% hydraulic power goes to the motor, you’re got some serious grind to work with. A Skid Steer with this attachment is capable of clearing, removing, and restoring your job site so you can get back to work. When you need to clear land, this is the right tool for the job.
