Anyone have a Morbark stump grinder? Are they any good?

I read somewhere about someone complaining they're under powered. It is strange that you almost never see them. No one I know has one. I did see one in the local dealers lot 10 yrs ago. It was a rental with the octagonal wheel and about 30HP.

Yeah, I read it one point that the hydraulic drive systems were very inefficient. But supposedly they fixed that? The rest of Morbark's stuff seems really good, I guess I would be sort of surprised if they made really lousy stump grinders...

I have a new Morkbark D52 stump grinder. Had it for about a year now. It has a 34hp cat in it and its built heavy duty. So far so good. It is our back yard grinder so we don't use it every job, only when there is minimal access. Wish I had more HP some days but the dealer said for the extra $$ you don't see that much of a difference. Its a Morbark wheel with green teeth and it will chew a stump out pretty quick. Like anything else, it works better when teeth are sharp. If you are looking at a newer model I wouldn't be afraid of one.
