The Stumpiranha, originally offered for backhoes and excavators, is now available for skid steer loaders.
The unit attaches to a skid steer loader using the conventional connection method, and allows the stump to be cut and ripped under the stump from the roots. The staggered sharp pointed blades cut the roots under the stump one pointed blade at a time, thus allowing the maximum cutting force to be achieved. The vertical arms of the tool straddle the stump while the blades rip the roots below, thus allowing the stump to be removed completely, only leaving the ends of the roots, the company says. The stump can then be scooped up and loaded into a truck, without leaving insect-infested grindings at the site.
