- Model SC60TX - Self-Propelled Stump Cutter



Combining exceptional power and enhanced mobility, the SC60TX is the ideal self-propelled stump cutter when you need a compact machine. Its undercarriage retracts to a mere 35”/89 cm wide for confined areas. Rubberized tracks maneuver easily on virtually all kinds of terrain or ground conditions. Patented AutoSweep system and gear drive help improve productivity. Yellow Jacket Cutter System helps extend pocket and tooth life and facilitates routine maintenance.

  • Turn on a dime – the SC60TX has a zero turning radius.
  • Minimize ground disturbance because the rubber tracks reduce ground pressure.
  • Keep your distance when you opt for the remote control, which operates the stump cutter up to 100’/3 m away from the unit.
  • Protect your investment with a 3-year/3000-hour extended limited warranty on applicable gearboxes and driveline, and a
    1-year/1000-hour Vermeer equipment limited warranty.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.

The Vermeer SC60TX demonstrates why the Vermeer name has become synonymous with stump-cutting innovation. Powered by a 60 hp (44.74 kW) CAT C2.2T turbocharged Tier 4a engine, this self-propelled stump cutter has a wide 51' (129.54 cm) stance for stability in the cutting mode and when needed, the SC60TX undercarriage retracts to a narrow 35' (88.90 cm) width to improve maneuverability in tight spaces.

The patented AutoSweep® system and geardrive system help to improve productivity and eliminate daily belt adjustment or alignment activity. The geardrive system efficiently transfers the engine horsepower directly to the area it is needed the most — the cutter wheel.

This stump cutter maneuvers easily, and rubber tracks provide traction to handle a variety of terrain and ground conditions, yet the 4.1 psi (.32 kg/cm2) ground pressure allows the machine to travel across delicate surfaces with minimal ground disturbance.

With its 60 hp (44.74 kW) diesel liquid-cooled engine, the SC60TX packs the power needed for bold performance.

The patent-pending Yellow JacketTM Cutter System features a universal tooth that can accommodate all cutting positions on the cutter wheel. Plus it offers easy serviceability and extended tooth and pocket life.

An optional remote control allows operators to maneuver the stump cutter up to 100’ (30.48 m) away from the unit. The joysticks and neckstrap help to increase operator control and comfort.

Zero turning radius. The planetary traction drive helps provide increased traction while the counter rotating tracks provide tight maneuvering in difficult jobsite conditions.
