The Vermeer SC602 stump cutter features a Caterpillar C2.2T Tier 4i (stage IIIB) diesel engine that produces 60 hp. and 142 ft-lb of torque to power through the toughest stump-cutting jobs. A 12-gallon-capacity fuel tank helps reduce the number of fuel refills in the field. The patented AutoSweep system monitors engine speed and automatically adjusts the cutter wheel sweep rate to maximize productivity and reduce premature wear. A direct driveline powers the cutter wheel, eliminating the need for belt-drive maintenance. The drive system gearboxes are connected by a driveshaft with U-joints, eliminating side loads and prolonging seal and motor-component life. The cutter wheel can achieve cutting heights of 24 inches above ground and 19 inches below grade. This towable unit features a tongue that can extend up to 60 inches. The SC602 stump cutter also offers the Yellow Jacket cutter system, which features a universal tooth that can accommodate all cutting positions on the cutter wheel.
