New Stump Grinder takes design into 21st century
New from Ryetec are a range of Stump Grinders which have been designed to reduce operator stress and fatigue to much lower levels than any models currently available on the UK market. Not only this but the revolutionary yet simple design improves working systems and therefore increases productivity.
'Easygrind' is the system which sets these new Stump Grinders apart from the rest. A simple locking turntable system allows the machine to move into the working position as normal. Once in position the locking pin is released allowing the top half of the machine including the engine, grinding wheel and control handles to swing with 1 metre of movement from left to right while the lower part of the machine and the transport wheels remain stationary. This system reduces the amount of operator effort by up to 70% over conventional machines and allows for a much greater control of the grinding action and an even feed with a much more consistent load on the engine giving the machine the effect of a higher powered conventional machine.
The New Ryetec machines are available with 13, 18 or 25 hp petrol engines. The larger machines have hydrostatic transmission for easy movement around sites and all units benefit from large diameter grinding wheels with 18 cutting teeth.
The new range also includes larger models, which offer 35 to 75 hp diesel engines, hydrostatic drive grinding wheels and a very low centre of gravity for maximum flexibility.
