    The very best thing you can buy for your mini.

    Branch manager grapple. Takes a helluva beating and keeps on ticking.

    BMG Branch Manager Grapple. Kills it!
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I just ordered a stump grinder yesterday. I searched around for decent used ones but all I saw was junk. So I got a new rg55. It’s not the diesel rg90 I was hoping to get but oh well. Up until now I had been renting once a week. I probably spend about $15,000 a year on renting so I might as well just buy one. scoops on the bmg are killer for removing grindings. Been doing it a bunch lately for some reason.

    Once I've purchased my mini, the follow up purchase will be the BMG as well as the 38 Special stump grinder attachment. That way, one machine, multi function and no need to tow anything else!
    Rope!?!? We forgot the rope?!?! Oh well....

    The mini is so useful that it ends up doing all the work. Soon you’ll need 2 of them.

    I had one of the original 38 specials. I had great success with it but others found it hard to operate, because if you're at the controls of the mini you are kind of grinding blind. By feel. You can't stand to the side and watch what's happening. So I ended up doing most all of the grinding which sucked.
