The Stump Gun’s innovative-yet-simple design allows it to easily grind stumps of virtually any shape or size. It attaches to skid-steer loaders in seconds, and it’s powered by the skid steer’s hydraulic system.

 

“If you have a skid-steer loader, you can have a powerful stump grinder,” said Christopher Smith, Bandit’s marketing and communications director. “The Stump Gun is a perfect addition for anyone with a skid steer who’s also seeking a simple, easy-to-use stump grinding solution.”

The Stump Gun connects to any skid steer with a quick attach plate. Once attached, the operator simply connects the hydraulic lines and removes the Stump Gun from its stand cradle. Because it operates vertically, the Stump Gun can be used to grind stumps of virtually any size. Operators simply drive to the stump, raise the Stump Gun into position, and grind the stump from left to right. The vertical design helps to aid chip containment while also being very effective on odd-shaped stumps and rootballs.

“What’s nice about the Stump Gun is that it’s a very basic design with just a few moving parts, yet it’s effective on pretty much any kind of stump,” said Smith. “It’s high-production with low maintenance, and that’s something everyone can appreciate.”

Maintaining the Stump Gun is as easy as operating it. Two grease points, nine grinding teeth and an end-cap on the shaft are the extent of the maintenance. Keep the Stump Gun greased and monitor the teeth and end-cap for wear—that’s it. The powerful hydraulic motor requires no routine maintenance, and the steel grinding shaft is built to easily withstand regular grinding operation.

And because the Stump Gun comes from Bandit, it’s built with the same durable construction and attention-to-detail people have come to expect from a Bandit product.

Can the Cutting Teeth and Pockets Be Moved?

YES!! The cutting teeth can be used on the right or left side and are interchangeable. This makes order much easier and you won't have to worry about having extra right-handed teeth and no left-handed teeth. This is especially important in the field, just grab a couple of teeth for emergency replace and have your socket wrench handy, and you will have new teeth replace in a snap!

Do I Replace Machine, Or just The Cutting Wheel?

The stump cutting disk is the critical part in grinding down the stumps. Although the machine is important, the stump grinding wheel is what makes the machine. Replacing the wheel with the DURA Disk II not only extends the life of the machine, but increases the machines ability.
