Toro adds new stump grinder to tree care equipment line
Landscaping equipment company Toro Australia has expanded its forestry equipment line to include the new STX-38 stump grinder with easier controls and a fully hydraulic, speedier operation.
Toro says the new machine is built for outstanding durability in the toughest conditions.
Toro Senior Sales Manager for Construction Equipment Sally Wade says the machine features a fully hydraulic operation preventing expensive belts from breaking or slipping and eliminating the need for tension adjustments.
"There is also no worry of engaging the grinder head at full throttle," she adds.
"The new Inteli Sweep feature automatically slows the sweep speed of the cutting head, based on the load of the wheel, so heavy cutting loads won't bog down the engine."
According to Wade, the new STX-38 is also easy to operate, unlike most other stump grinders on the market.
"While some dedicated stump grinders are complicated to use, the STX-38 model features Toro's patented TX- Style control system with two user-friendly levers to operate all traction and grinding functions. An armrest near the joystick also reduces operator fatigue," she says.
"The STX-38 stump grinder has tracks instead of wheels, which provide a large footprint, low centre of gravity and exceptional stability."
Its track design, Wade adds, allows it to work in any condition.
"The machine can be operated in wet, muddy, hilly and sot terrain and tyre ruts and flat tyres are eliminated. The track design climbs curbs and allows for zero turn capability," she says.
"By combining the track system with a powerful 38 HP Kohler air cooled petrol engine, the stump grinder can also travel very quickly at speeds up to 7.2 kilometres per hour."
The STX-38 stump grinder features a large 56.5 cm diameter cutting wheel, a cutting depth of 45.7 cm below grade and a cutting height of 88.9 cm above grade. Its width of 86.4 cm allows the machine to fit easily through most gates.
Toro stump grinders come with a two year, 1000 hour commercial warranty which can be extended to five years and 5000 hour if clients purchase the "Toro Protection Plus" package.
Finance options and after sales support is also available through Toro's extensive dealer and sales network.
