Fecon introduced the Stumpex stump grinder for skid-steers with as little as 20 gpm hydraulic output. Low rpm and as much as 33,600 foot-pounds of torque @ 4,000 psi enable the 1,500-pound Stumpex to draw itself down into any species of stump 10 to 28 inches in diameter and up to 20 inches deep in a single pass. Larger-diameter stumps are processed by making additional passes. A threaded cone and staggered AR500 cutting blades grind out stump and root material with minimal discharge without requiring any fast-wearing carbide cutting tools. Stump chips stay mostly in the hole traditional stump grinders create, making clean-up after grinding with a Stumpex faster and easier. Low maintenance costs, high production, less clean-up, and increased safety make the Stumpex a great opportunity for stump-grinding contractors in land clearing, tree care, and municipal applications.
