Loftness has added a stump grinder attachment to its line of vegetation management equipment. Compatible with skid steers, compact track loaders and excavators, the Stump Ax is engineered for productivity and control.
Featuring a rigid mount, the Stump Ax offers a practical, reliable design capable of working faster than articulating stump grinder attachments by repositioning the power unit instead of swinging the cutting wheel, the manufacturer said. It has an angled hitch and forward-reaching boom to give the operator visibility and control on the job.
The Stump Ax includes the Phantom Wheel with Tomahawk teeth from Leonardi, which are regarded by vegetation management professionals for their strength and cutting. The Phantom Wheel also has cut-outs to create a see-through effect for further improved visibility. A chain deflector provides containment of the wood chips.
A 200cc high-torque radial piston motor on the Stump Ax is compatible with power units that have 30- to 60-gallon-per-minute hydraulic flow ratings. A reversible design allows the motor to be mounted either forward- or rear-facing.
