Built from the ground up

Josh Rutter founded Rutter Stump Removal in 2018, removing stumps with a 1996 Vermeer 206 machine. With the older machine, he definitely got an upper body workout, but it did the job. Here’s a look at how the Rutters have grown the company since then.
Later in 2018, Josh upgraded to a 2017 Vermeer 292 machine. This machine was great for smaller stumps and getting into tight spaces.
Josh updated his machinery to a 2017 Carlton 5014 (55HP gas machine).
Josh upgraded again, this time to a heavy-duty 2014 Bandit 2900T stump grinder. This machine is a 99-horsepower, diesel-run behemoth that improved efficiency and cutting capabilities. He also purchased and upgraded a dump truck, which greatly expanded service and cleanup capabilities.
Today, Rutter is a full-service stump removal service, fully equipped to take on any kind of stump so you can reclaim your yard.
