Lebanon, Ohio — Fecon has upgraded its Stumpex auger-type stump grinder to include a 2-speed hydraulic motor for faster stump removal, especially on soft woods. Designed to maximize 100% of machine output, the Stumpex 2-Speed improves cut time by up to 50%, removing 24-inch stumps in less than 3 minutes. In addition to faster stump processing, the new model reduces wear on blades and cones, allowing longer service life and extending the intervals between blade sharpening. It is ideal for skid steer loaders and compact tracked loaders with 60+ horsepower. Carriers with lower flow will achieve drastically increased cutting time compared to fixed displacement motors. Easily transported in a pickup truck, Stumpex 2-Speed stump grinders are ideal for arborists, landscapers, land improvement companies, parks and recreation departments, golf courses, municipalities, and wherever safe, efficient stump removal is desired.
With no chips or debris strewn about, the low-speed high-torque auger-type technology is the safest method of stump removal. Very little maintenance is required. Since all debris is contained in one area, cleanup is much faster as well. There is 50% less O & O vs. a typical chipper, saving time and money.
