Bringing the SC48TX to Australian industry

Before construction can kick off, necessary preparatory measures – such as stump grinding – may need to occur. With such a wide variety of types and sizes of stumps often needing to be removed, contractors are looking for new, bigger and better equipment to help them get the job done.

Site preparation is the often-overlooked first stage in the construction process, and site clearing and stump removal is a key part of that.

No two jobs, stumps or sites are the same, but having a range of stump grinding machines to cater to each situation is costly – not to mention time wasted to swap out machines.

Powerful equipment that is flexible and adaptable to a variety of different situations, without having to sacrifice efficiency and productivity, is essential for industry professionals.

With its new SC48TX Stump Grinder, Vermeer Australia understands this challenge and rises to the occasion.

Equipment that won’t have you stumped

The SC48TX Stump Grinder offers the latest in stump grinding technology and is specifically designed to help contractors systematically cut stumps of all sizes. The 48hp (36-kW) diesel engine enables optimal fuel economy, durability and performance.

The beltless direct-drive system delivers maximum power from the engine to the cutter wheel through a pair of gearboxes connected by a driveshaft, and the beltless design of this system means contractors can expect minimal maintenance costs.

The machine’s low ground pressure and narrow footprint gives operators access to previously unattainable locations. Challenging and narrow job sites are no longer an issue, as the SC48TX allows users to retract the machine to only 35 inches (89cm) and then extend the tracks to 49 inches (124.5 cm).

The low disturbance tracks provide optimal traction and stability in tough, uneven ground conditions, reducing the time needed for job prep, and the blade’s rounded lower edge leads to minimal turf damage.

The optional backfill blade efficiently moves chips around the jobsite, eliminating the requirement to manually relocate the chips and mitigating the need for a lengthy clean-up.

The latest in stump grinding technology

The unique Vermeer cutting system boasts a two-sided cutter wheel which minimises recirculation of material and maximises cutting performance, enhancing jobsite productivity and streamlining performance.

Jobsite flexibility, safety and visibility is further enhanced with the SC48TX’s optional full-function remote control – meaning equipment can be operated without the need for an operator physically standing at the operator’s station.

Vermeer Australia prides itself on providing innovative machines equipped with smart technology and the SC48TX Stump Grinder is no exception, fitted out with the Vermeer cutting system, SmartSweep™ control system, and the operator presence system. The multifunctional display (MFD) goes the extra mile for operators, displaying hours, fuel level, engine speed, engine faults and engine status.

Backed by the best in the business

Contractors can rest easy knowing the machine’s CAT engine is backed by proven worldwide service and support and comes with three-year coverage.

Further adding to user confidence, Vermeer offers extended service coverage, preventive maintenance and the Vermeer Confidence Plus® asset protection program.

More than just offering the latest high-quality, high-performance and functional equipment, Vermeer Australia provides after-sales support and service, with a team of industry professionals on hand across 10 branches to assist customers.
