A Stump grinder or mini digger Should do it

Or if your on a budget. Hand saws, pick axes and a heavy fencing pike

Small pedestrian grinder will be fine as long as there’s room at the front and sides to move the grinder about. Or pick axe and digging equipment

A stumpgrinder can get the stump out, provided you have access via a normal gate width and can reach the stump from one side. However if there is concrete or other obstacles nearby, you cannot get closer than 3 or 4 inches to the obstacles.

If you can not get the root out via digging or stump grinder, best thing to do is drill 6inch holes in the stump and poison it, cover with a bag and over a few months should slowly rot away and can be broken out
