John Deere added to its Worksite Pro attachment lineup the SS30 model stump shredder.

“Our shredder was engineered to be a powerful, indispensable tool for tree stump removal,” said Jessica Hill, global program manager, attachments. “It’s a unique offering to the market that was created to keep operators safer and more productive.”

Ideal for landscaping and construction job sites, the new shredder can remove stumps from 203 millimeters (8 inches) to 711 millimeters (28 inches) in one pass. Larger stumps can be removed with multiple bores, the company said.

The shredder’s hardened pilot cone draws the auger into the stump, while 19-millimeter-thick AR500 steel blades cut the stump. Operators can bore up to 508 millimeters (20 inches) into the ground to remove stump feeder roots.

The stump shredder is optimized for the new mid- and large-frame G-Series skid-steers (320G, 324G, 330G and 332G) and mid- and large-frame G-Series compact track loaders (325G, 331G and 333G).

It’s designed with a low-speed, high-torque auger planetary drive that shreds tree stumps with reduced incidence of high-speed flying debris when compared to conventional stump grinders, according to the company. Site cleanup is made easy as the attachment produces a small, contained chip pile.

Carbide tool replacement parts are not needed for the attachment, and maintenance is required every 1,000 stumps. It’s backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
