Vermeer has expanded its stump cutter lineup offering increased options for the customer. The new SC362 stump cutter was developed with rental yards and tree care contractors in mind offering a compact, high horsepower machine for stump removal. Equipped with a 35-hp (26.1 kW) Vanguard engine, a hydraulic ground drive and a belt driven cutter head, the SC362 provides operators with ample power and maneuverability to take out medium-sized stumps with the productivity and reliability that the field demands.
