    They are a horrible company, that had never invented anything. They steal ideas, polish and market them, and then claim it was their idea in the first place. They had a problem in China at their manufacturing plants, because too many people were committing suicide by jumping to their deaths out of the "dorm rooms". They were being forced to work so many hours in terrible conditions, that jumping to their deaths was a better alternative. Apple's solution? Circus nets outside the dorms. Not to mention everything costs money with them, their phasing out of their own products so you have to keep buying them, and the fact that they censor free speech.

    Steve jobs was such an asshole, it's legendary. Books have been written. If an apple employee was possessed, and required an exorcism, they would likely say "Steve jobs sucks cocks in hell. " To which the priest would have to say "tell us something we don't know." And you don't want to buy stuff from gay Satan worshippers do you?

    My friend rented it from Home Depot for 24 hours for ~$300
    I had to leave right after I took this picture of grinding on one of these 4' stumps...
    but I estimate it took 1.5 or 2 hours to grind it down (need to ask him).
    I've been curious about the Barretto Grinders -- I've used a ditcher from them to lay some drain pipe in the front yard, that looks to be basically the same machine but with a stump grinding wheel. We almost rented one during one of the big belts-n-bearings downtimes on our Vermeer SC252 stump grinder. I'd be curious to know the actual grind time on the 4' pecan stump, for reference.

    Of course, I've been eyeing this Greenteeth Quadwheel from Tree Stuff: http://www.treestuff.com/store/catalog.asp?item=14782
