Stumping ground


Westcon Equipment UK, the European dealers for the Rayco range of stump cutters, offer fourteen different models in their range from 13 hp
(RG13ii model) with an impressive 22” cut above ground and 13” below ground to 275 HP (T275A model) with an even more impressive 65” cut above ground and 47” below ground.

The mini work force range consisting of the RG13 in hand start or 13H electric start with a working width starting at 25”, they are both push along, up to the RG25HD self propelled at a width of 29”, they always prove to be very popular due to their access capabilities.

Rayco are launching three new models for this season starting with the RG1645 powered by a 45HP water cooled diesel engine with four wheeled variable drive to the ground wheels and direct drive to the cutter wheel. Secondly, the RG70 powered by a 70HP water cooled diesel engine also with four wheel drive to ground wheels and hydraulic drive to the cutter wheel. Thirdly the RG100 powered by a 100 HP water cooled diesel engine, four wheel drive and hydraulic drive to cutter wheel.
All the above have a 34.5” working width for ease of access and equipped with Rayco’s variable speed “ QUICK STOP” cutter wheel with operator safety in mind.

If you are looking for narrow width but stability, operator safety, compact but ultimate power, reliability and an operator friendly machine then your only choice is “RAYCO”.

The DANequip 25SP pedestrian stump grinder has the advantage of 28” (710mm) so will fit through most narrow accesses, it does have the availability of narrow wheels that will take this machine to the width of 26” (670mm). The 25SP is compact & well balanced making it a little easier on the operator to use. Engine options are 25hp or 27hp Kohler Command, with electric start & low oil pressure alert fitted as standard. The 36cm diameter cutter wheel is 12mm thick, using just 8 standard teeth, producing more than enough inertia. We now supply the option of having green teeth fitted, allowing changing teeth a much quicker & simpler operation. The machine has a powerful, variable hydrostatic drive allowing the operator to get the machine to the stump quickly. Last year a smaller push/pull model was introduced to the market, this is just under 23” (560mm) wide, the unit is supplied with either a 12hp Kohler or a 13hp Honda engine, later in the year the 15hp Intelligent Honda engine is available. The machine uses a 36cm x 1cm cutter wheel. A very robust machine, ideal for the hire market, or as a first machine with a smaller outlay.

Tracmasters CAMON C500 Stump Grinder is a compact machine which at just 25” wide allows for access in difficult areas. The C500 features a powerful 13hp Honda petrol engine for reliability
and ease of use, along with heavy-duty resharpenable carbide teeth. For the comfort and safety of the operator, the handlebar can be adjusted to work in three different positions
Travis Perkins (TP Hire), has recently added the CAMON C500 Stump Grinder to their extensive range of equipment for hire. With over 150 dedicated hire centres around the UK, the majority of which are located within Travis Perkins or Keyline builders merchants, they are able to offer a one stop shop for almost all landscaping requirements..

Tracmaster’s Managing Director, Stephen Pitt, says “Since we launched the C500 in the UK in 2002 it has really proved itself to be a reliable and durable machine, qualities which have helped to make it one of the best-selling compact Stump Grinders available today. This outstanding machine offers fantastic performance and value for money.

“TP Hire opted for the C500 for a number of reasons, including the fact that it is ideal for contractors and landscapers – its compact size and manoeuvrability mean it can be transported easily, and because it is so narrow back gardens, for example, with limited access aren’t a problem. “We already supply TP Hire with a number of machines from our CAMON range for their hire fleet including the market-leading CAMON Rotavators and Cultivators, Lawn Scarifier, Chipper-Shredders, and
Wood Chippers, so we were delighted that they have added the C500 Stump Grinder to the range.”
