An offshoot of the dependable TK track trencher, the 30SG stump grinder features a variant of the same
time-tested track drive platform used by the TK series. The 30SG has a hydraulically-driven cutter wheel
that is raised and lowered into the stump and then moved from side to side to cut down. The 30SG
power options consist of a 31hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard V-Twin or a 26.5hp Kohler EFI engine. The
engine is coupled to two gear pumps: the larger gear pump drives the cutter wheel and the smaller pump
works the tilt and swing cylinders of the stump grinder. The tracks are driven by independent hydrostatic pumps mounted on
the rear of the engine for easy access and simple linkage control. Counterbalance valves on each track
drive prevent the track motors from slipping while the cutter wheel is engaged in the cutting process,
even while operating on a slope.
The cutter wheel operation and articulating arm of the stump grinder are operated by controls mounted on the console. The
cutter wheel is activated by a switch on the control stick and has a secondary safety switch to prevent
accidental engagement. Back and forth movement across the stump, as well as depth of cut, are easily
controlled by handles on the console, allowing for carefully controlled movement of the cutter wheel as it
reduces the stump to chips.
This machine is a beast!! The little ones you rent elsewhere take about 6-8 hours to do what this does in 30-45 minutes! Don’t waste time and money, get this one the first time.
It’s a monster on the stumps.
