The Ventrac stump grinder has an 18-inch cutting head with 16 individual carbide cutting teeth. All of those teeth are replaceable and adjustable. It also comes with a convex mirror so that the operator can see safely and easily what's going on in front of them. The stump grinder is a great example of how Ventrac pushes the limits of versatility at just over 28 inches wide 33 inches long this stump grinder is even more compact and a walk-behind stump grinder. But couple it with a Ventrac 4500 tractor and it's just as capable as other commercial options. There are some other distinct advantages of this stump grinder that are worth mentioning. The Ventrac is a very turf friendly tractor so when you're using this tractor and stump grinder combination you're much less likely to tear up the ground you're working on. This is great on nice lawns or in other areas where you don't want to leave a mess when you're done. Also since it's on the Ventrac you have
the ability to get very close to obstacles or buildings and grind stumps since the tractors compact and maneuverable. Belt drive is a clear advantage in this application because you don't have to worry about breaking shear pins or building excess heat with hydraulic drive. If you come up to an obstruction
the belt can slip and you can back off before it does any damage. Most people know the Ventrac very well for its ability to operate on steep slopes and with a stump grinder, it's no different. You can grind stumps on hills that other machinery couldn't even get
to. Another convenience for commercial users of this setup is that you have a very high transport speed of up to ten miles an hour. This allows you to get from site to site much quicker than other stump grinders of this same capability. The Stump grinder consists of two separate components the cutting head and the mirror kit. These brackets are bolted to the tractor and they allow the mirror kit to be added or removed in a matter of seconds. The mirror kit is also adjustable specific to the operator. That adjustment is made here. The stump grinder has a jack stand located right here that is used for positioning the hitch arms when attaching or detaching from the power unit. Make sure the jack stand is in one
of the two lower positions when attaching or detaching and raised up into the highest positions when actually in use. To operate the stump grinder make sure the tractor is in low range and then once you have the PTO running and the cutting head is spinning pull up to the stub make contact with it and then use the tractor steering left and right to sweep passes against the stump. As you progress you'll keep driving forward until you're done grinding this stump. To
control the depth and how aggressive you are with the stump grinder you'll adjust with your SDLA lever. When it comes to weight transfer this is one attachment that you won't run and float the stump grinder will work in any setting. This stump grinder is used and appreciated by golf courses, municipalities, schools, landscape contractors, and even homeowners. It's another great addition to your Ventrac fleet to make your tractor the most capable it can possibly be.
