SC30TX Stump Cutter

With a focus on ease-of-operation, the compact design of the SC30TX offers intuitive controls, minimal service points and the performance of a machine that gets the job done. The modified operator presence handle design is now manufactured with a harder exterior to improve wear and appearance. This user-friendly handle system provides additional capacitance sensing capability and is intended to help protect the operator.
