The Vermeer SC382 stump cutter has a redesigned cutter wheel and is powered by a 37-horsepower EFI Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine. With optimized tooth placement, the company says, the 17-inch cutter wheel is engineered to help improve chip containment and reduce material recirculation. It is designed to work up to 24 inches above ground and 15 inches below ground.
The Vermeer Yellow Jacket cutting system has universal and reversible carbide-tipped teeth designed with two cutting edges.
Available with 2- or 4-wheel drive, the stump cutters have an oscillating front steering axle and measure 34.5 inches wide.
Vermeer SmartSweep control system monitors engine speed and automatically adjusts. An operator-presence system automatically disengages and begins to brake the cutter wheel when the operator’s hands leave the controls.
