Designed for ideal balance, power and agility.

The SC852 stump cutter can glide through a standard gate and still deliver 74 hp (55 kW) of stump-grinding power with a Deutz TD2.9L Tier 4 Final engine. The Yellow Jacket™ Cutter System helps extend pocket and tooth life and facilitates routine maintenance. All-wheel drive, varying speed and heavy-duty rubber tires gets you in and around residential or off-road job sites with ease. Updates like operator’s presence, remote mounted cooling system as well as SmartSweep™, a new fuel tank design and hydraulic updates are also present in this powerful stump cutter.



Maximizes cutting width because a unique four-bar linkage moves the cutter wheel away from the machine as the boom drops.
Get into tight spots with side-mounted controls that are easy to reach, and an auxiliary control station that lets the operator lead or follow the machine through narrow confines.
Reduce maintenance time through features like hinged doors and removable panels that give you easy access to service pumps.
Add Confidence Plus® asset protection program in your initial purchase or add it anytime within the standard one-year warranty period. When you finance your maintenance expenses, you can know and plan for a fixed cost upfront. Check with your local Vermeer dealer for specific model availability.
