SC852 Stump Cutter

Stump Cutters | Vermeer SC852 Stump Cutter

Engineered for an ideal balance of power and agility, the slim SC852 stump cutter can glide through a standard 36”/91.4 cm gate and still deliver 85 hp/63 kW of stump-grinding power. The Yellow Jacket™ Cutter System helps extend pocket and tooth life and facilitates routine maintenance. All-wheel drive, varying speed and heavy-duty rubber tires gets you in and around residential or off-road job sites with ease.

Features and Benefits

  • Maximizes cutting width because a unique four-bar linkage moves the cutter wheel away from the machine as the boom drops.
  • Get into tight spots – side-mounted controls are easy to reach, and an auxiliary control station lets the operator lead or follow the machine through narrow confines.
  • Reduce maintenance time through features like hinged doors and removable panels that give you easy access to service pumps and a direct drive hydrostatic pump that eliminates clutch and belt drive issues.  
  • Protect your investment with a 3-year/3000-hour extended limited warranty on applicable gearboxes and driveline, and a 1-year/1000-hour Vermeer equipment limited warranty.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
