    I would stay away from something with a Wisconsin engine. They were a good engine back when parts were available.

    I googled Vermeer 630B and that looks like the one, would something like this be a money pit? I thought about getting one just to do side jobs and nothing huge. but it was also said to stay away from the Wisconsin engine.

    I have had a couple over the years. Sold Tree Service in 2004 and keep a 630B. Nice machine for small and medium stumps. Could haul it into back yards with my riding tractor. Good engine, no problem getting parts. That is a fair price. Good Luck

    Get a self propelled grinder that thing is a task to move around and get up on stumps! It wont go through a 36 inch gate like a self propelled grinder will either.

    My 630B would go through a 36" gate. Just turn tires in. Very simple to do. Used ones up our way go around $2,500.

    You could buy a Vermeer 252 for that. Easy. Small potatoes these days but it'll get you started if that’s all you got and you’ve want to grind stumps. I run one.

    Course I’d take a 85hp $85,000 machine for free, but I like my 252 I paid 7 for not too long ago. I’ve seen them go for less recently. Get a bench grinder and a drill press and go GreenTeeth if you do.
