Vermeer introduced the SC70TX stump cutter as an addition to its professional tree care equipment product line.

The SC70TX can withstand large stumps on a commercial job site and can fit into tight spaces in a residential area, according to the company.

The rubber tracks have a tread designed to decrease ground disturbance or damage. The track system gives the machine a transport speed of 65 ft./min. The undercarriage system has 4.3 psi ground-bearing pressure in soft ground and allows the machine to track quietly and smoothly, according to the company.

The stump cutter has a 67 hp Cat turbocharged, tier 4 final/stage IIIB diesel engine. The engine delivers power to the 23-in. cutter wheel which can travel up to 1,560 rpm.

“Vermeer designed the SC70TX stump cutter for challenging residential, commercial, municipal and rental applications,” said Todd Roorda, tree care, rental and landscaping sales manager at Vermeer. “We have made several enhancements upon qualities to create a powerful and efficient machine. We know contractors will be pleased with the power, speed and controls of the SC70TX model.”

The machine is equipped with safety features including patented capacitance-sensing operator presence system and wheel brake. Vermeer’s patented SmartSweep control system is also a feature of the stump cutter. SmartSweep monitors the engine speed and automatically adjusts the cutter wheel sweep speed to maximize power to the cutter wheel while reducing engine stress.
