What man as done, man can do, what never has,maybe
I've been thinking. Would 20 hp be enough power to run a decent stump grinder?
Honda do a nice little v twin with 20-22 hp. I was thinking I could then use the dumper as a donkey engine with oil tank (20l) and then get a grinder attachment for the e10. This would make a narrow access stump grinder? This all depends on dumper having a 1 inch shaft.
Sound like a daft idea?
Something like this
Would think you’ll end up stalling the grinder being hydraulic powered all the ‘proper’ ones are belt drive direct from the engine so have to stall the engine not just blow off a relive valve🤔

I was thinking maybe some kind of diverter valve in the main feed from the pump and then completely separate system with maybe a control valve clamped on the handle bar of the e10? I would like to leave the dumper controls as they are.

Maybe one of these to control it
And something like this in the feed line from pump

From what I understand the most important thing is choice of tips with the grinders
I have only used one type of tip which is supposedly very power hungry
The green teeth are supposedly a lot more efficient energy wise
So green teeth on a small wheel might be okay but you will never get the production of a self propelled grinder
You will just cook the machine in production use

I made a new exhaust today but it's still bloody loud. There is now very little boom but the crack is just as loud and I think that comes through the engine.
Think I'll try a honda gx390 on it and see if that helps. I don't fancy a Chinese special.

A Loncin is every bit as good as a modern Honda, which I think are made in China anyway!

I've got real honda's and several chonda's. If you need it to start every time, get the honda.
If you don't mind the fule line rotting, the rust coming throught the plating, the pain fading, the plastic going brittle in the sun (oh - you guys don't have that much sun!!) and you are not going to wear it out from use, then the chonda's are good value.
As above, the Loncin and Li Fan seem to be the pick of them.
