Find A Dealer Request More Info

The Vermeer SC552 stump cutter is designed to maneuver through tough jobsite conditions. A unique four-bar linkage allows the cutter wheel to move away from the machine as the boom drops down toward the stump, reducing the need to reposition the entire unit. This machine can achieve cutting heights of 31 in (78.7 cm) above ground and 25 in (63.5 cm) below grade. The four wheel drive and variable speed control gives the SC552 traction in difficult ground conditions and, an optional remote provides propel, boom and steering function control. Chips can be easily moved on the jobsite with the standard 34 in (86.4 cm) wide front-mounted chip blade.
