Product Summary

The highly portable NorthStar® Compact Stump Grinder quickly removes entire tree stumps. Its commercial-grade Honda GX engine and carbide-tipped teeth let anyone do a professional job. Designed to go where larger grinders cannot and fits through narrow paths, walkways, doorways or gates and is light enough to be lifted over retaining walls but doesn't sacrifice power. The grinder fits into cars, trucks and vans, eliminating the need to trailer it. The side discharge design allows smooth forward advancement by directing cuttings away from the wheels and frame while grinding.

The Right Tool for the Job

The Right Tool for the Job

Goes Where Other Grinders Can't

At NorthStar®, we know that there's nothing more important than having the right tool for the job. That's why we put together our Compact Stump Grinder. It's the stump grinder that fits through narrow doorways and gates and is light enough to be lifted over retaining walls or into planter boxes, but doesn't sacrifice power. The grinder even fits into cars, trucks and vans, so you won't need a trailer to get to the worksite.

Balanced and Easy to Maneuver

Our Compact Stump Grinder isn't just easy to move; it's easy to use. It has a specially designed frame and handle with a balance point that reduces operator fatigue and big 12in. diameter wheels that are easy to roll over rough terrain. It also has a side debris discharge that directs cuttings away from the wheels and frame, ensuring smooth forward movement.

Built Tough

Fuel Efficient, High Output Honda Engine

The precision-engineered components that come together to form this NorthStar Compact Stump Grider's Honda GX160 engine let it run with less vibration and less noise. It's built to last with minimal maintenance, so you'll stay on the job with less trouble.

Equipped to Rip

The NorthStar Compact Stump Grider puts that Honda power to good use, grinding stumps from 10in. above grade to 9in. below grade. The Tri-Power molded Gates® belt made with exclusive EPDM construction lasts longer, with higher heat resistance, smoother operation and a longer service life. The belt moves a 9 2/3in. dia. x 3/8in. cutting wheel with 4 durable carbide-tipped teeth.
