Take Out the Stubbornest of Stumps with the Vermeer SC382 Stump Cutter
A smarter machine for maximum efficiency and productivity
Vermeer’s new SC382 stump cutter is the latest addition to their professional line of tree can equipment, featuring a 37 horsepower EFI Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine, an optional blade for more efficient cleanup, and a redesigned cutter wheel to further optimize performance. Enhanced power and maneuverability make this stump cutter the choice machine for all professional tree care contractors. The compact, yet powerful SC382 comes equipped with four-wheel drive and is ready to take on even the most resilient stumps.
“The Vermeer SC382 stump cutter has a similar design to our popular SC362 model, with power and performance-enhancing features. It is a great machine for professionals to help maximize their productivity.”
- Todd Roorda, tree care, rental and landscaping sales manager at Vermeer
With optimized tooth placement, the new 17 inch (43.2 cm) cutter wheel on the SC382 stump cutter is engineered to help improve chip containment and reduce material recirculation. It is designed to work up to 24 inches (61 cm) above ground and 15 inches (38.1 cm) below ground. This machine is outfitted with the Vermeer Yellow Jacket™ cutting system that features universal and reversible carbide-tipped teeth. These are designed with two cutting edges on each tooth as well as side pocket clearance to help limit pocket rubbing which can cause power loss and premature pocket wear.
The SC382 stump cutter includes two-wheel and four-wheel drive propel modes, as well as an oscillating front steering axle to maneuver through tough material and around challenging jobsites. With a machine width of just 34.5 inches (87 cm), the SC382 stump cutter is convenient to position in tight areas and will fit through many backyard gates.
This stump cutter is equipped with an operator presence system and Vermeer SmartSweep™ control system. The operator presence system is designed to automatically disengage and begin braking the cutter wheel when the user’s hands leave the control levers. The onboard SmartSweep system monitors engine speed and automatically adjusts to produce a smooth, consistent cutter wheel sweep rate.
An optional push blade can also be added to the SC382 stump cutter to move or level chipped material and reduce the amount of manual labor required when cleaning up the jobsite. The blade is controlled hydraulically from the operator’s station.
