Removing stumps from landscaping and construction sites is about to get a whole lot easier with John Deere’s new SS30 model Stump Shredder. The newest addition to JD’s Worksite Pro attachments lineup, this shredder can easily remove 8 inch (203 mm) to 28 inch (711 mm) stumps in just one pass, and larger stumps can be easily removed as well with multiple bores. Optimized for the new mid- and large-frame G-Series skid steers (320G, 324G, 330G and 332G) and mid- and large-frame G-Series compact track loaders (325G, 331G and 333G), this shredder is sure to make removal and cleanup as quick and easy as possible.
“Our shredder was engineered to be a powerful, indispensable tool for tree stump removal. It’s is a unique offering to the market that was created to keep operators safer and more productive.”
- Jessica Hill, global program manager, attachments
The stump shredder is designed with a low-speed, high-torque auger planetary drive that shreds tree stumps with reduced incidence of high-speed flying debris when compared to conventional stump grinders. Despite its slower operating speeds, stump removal is also faster than conventional grinders. Site cleanup is easy thanks to the small, contained chip pile produced by the attachment.
For superior ease of operation, the shredder’s hardened pilot cone draws the auger into the stump while 19 mm (0.75 inch) thick, AR500 steel blades efficiently cut the stump. With the SS30 model, operators can bore up to 508 mm (20 inches) into the ground to remove stump feeder roots.
The stump shredder was also built to provide customers with cost and time savings. Carbide tool replacement parts are not needed for the attachment, and maintenance is only required every 1,000 stumps, yielding lower operating costs and maximum uptime.
The new stump shredder attachment is backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
