The self-propelled SC292 stump cutter is equipped with a 26.5 hp (19.8 kW) EFI Kohler engine providing full-sized power in a compact unit. Contractors can now fit into tighter spaces for more efficient stump grinding; with duals removed the unit is only 35” (89 cm) wide. Convenience and safety features include a hydraulic ground drive system, exclusive Vermeer Yellow Jacket™ Cutter System and operator presence handle system design that disengages the cutter wheel if the operator lets go of the controls. Reduce engine, drivetrain and structural stress in typical stump removal with the optional AutoSweep function that automatically adjusts the cutter wheel sweep rate.
The stump grinders’ unique design pivots over the center line of the wheels, allowing the grinding head to sweep easily across the stump, while the wheel base remains stationary. The innovative design and compact stature of this stump grinder makes it ideal for tight access areas. The swivel head has a swing arc of 35˚ and the cutting wheel has eight carbide green teeth with three cutting surfaces. Free-wheeling hubs facilitate easy travel to the jobsite, while the independent wheel locks allow for easy locking while grinding.
