Power King Stump Grinder Review
I would have to say this is a great grinder for the money however the exhaust is pointing towards you and will pollute you out fast, the motor is very well made and the frame is good the guards underneath to keep you protected from flying wood chips is horrible, wear a face mask, overall for the price you can't beat it we're just going to have to take a little extra beating.
Pros:Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable
Cons:Low Quality, Heavy

This is Gregg, Founder of Powerking. We are so glad your stump grinder is working great for you. Kohler engine exhaust port has a right angle shield to direct the exhaust to the side. Kohler is now manufacturing side exhaust ports for Powerking future production. We are sending you a shield to add to your engine. It assembles quickly with 2 screws. Thank you for your suggestion to improve quality. Happy Grinding!
1 hour 20 minutes of use both bolts sheared off one tooth, machine shakes uncontrollably. Chippers Direct response manufacture says to tighten bolts regularly. It has 1 hour 20 minutes of use. Their is a lock nut and a lock washer on each of the two bolts hold each tooth on. It has 1 hour 20 minutes of use. I am more offended by Chippers Direct than by this product. Also the free chainsaw was not sent with this product as advertised. After two phone calls and about a week I have a Fedex tracking number. Also after about 1 hour 5 minutes realized the bolt holding the wheel worked itself off. This did not have a lock nut nor lock washer. Gotta replace this too, just an fyi for others

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a detailed review. I do apologize for any issues you've been experiencing, however it is extremely important to go through the owner's manual to ensure everything is set up properly and tightened prior to using a new piece of equipment. I'm sorry if you felt that you were disrespected by our company as that is never our intention, we were only passing along additional instructions from the manufacturer to try and help resolve your issue. I see that we have contacted you directly through your account to send additional information regarding replacement bolts for your unit. Thank you very much for your business and I hope you have a great day.
This stump grinder will take care of stumps fast. Works fine and starts easy. The handle could be longer for better balance and it would be better if you could see where cutter head is.
Pros:Features, Price, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons:Heavy, handle to short, hard to tell where cutter head is

Works Great But...
Great little stump grinder. However when I ordered I asked about replacement blades. I was told they run $39.99 for the set and could order from power king. 2nd time using it the blade wheel shattered. Cost of new blades $169 per set. More accurate info would have been appreciated.
Pros:Price, Features, Easy To Use
