- Model SC1152 - Stump Cutter



Powerful enough to handle large, land-clearing projects but narrow enough to fit through a standard 36”/91.4 cm gate, the SC1152 stump cutter is loaded with innovative features. Variable speed saves you time on the job. Joystick controls are easy to master. Super-sized 27”/68.6 cm cutting wheel swiftly grinds away stubborn hardwood stumps. The Yellow Jacket Cutter System helps extend pocket and tooth life and facilitates routine maintenance.

  • Maximizes cutting width because the high cutter wheel moves away from the machine as the boom drops.
  • Keep your distance when you opt for the remote control, which operates the cutter up to 100’/30 m away from the unit.
  • Clear away chips when the stump is eliminated using the front-mounted chip blade.
  • Reduce maintenance time through features like easily-accessed service points and a direct-drive hydrostatic pump that eliminates clutch and belt drive issues.  
  • 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 SC1152 stump cutter features an industry-leading design to help enhance efficiency with sizeable cutting width and the ability to maneuver in uneven terrain. Variable-speed ground drive provides the operator greater control and a single joystick is used to maneuver the machine forward and in reverse while a switch controls the steering. An additional switch is provided for creep control for maneuvering around the stump or while loading on a trailer. The operator can choose between high range for normal travel up to 130 ft/min (39.6 m/min) and low range at 100 ft/min (30.5 m/min) for the creep function as the jobsite requires.

The SC1152 is compact enough to fit through a 36' (91.4 cm) gate, but still provides 110 hp (82 kW) for large landclearing jobsites. The large cutter wheel [27' (68.6 cm) with teeth] achieves a cutting height of 31' (78.7 cm) above the ground and 25' (63.5 cm) below grade.

Whatever the job, the SC1152 has the horsepower and traction to get the job done right.

The high cutter wheel allows a cutting height of 31' (78.7 cm) above ground and 25' (63.5 cm) below grade. The unique four-bar linkage is designed to allow the cutter wheel to move away from the machine as the boom drops down toward the stump, which helps reduce the need to reposition the entire unit.

The optional radio remote control provides propel, boom and steering function control so there’s no need to stand at the swingout control station or front-mounted auxiliary control panel.

Yellow JacketTM cutter system, a Vermeer exclusive, offers faster, easier serviceability, along with almost double the pocket and tooth life of other systems. Teeth mounted on the side of the cutter wheel in a 4.9' (12.4 cm) wide radial band allow a deeper cut on each pass through the stump.

The direct drive-hydrostatic motor eliminates the need for clutch and belt-drive maintenance. The inline drive system between the motor and gearbox is connected by a driveshaft with u-joints, so no side loads are placed on the motor, which helps reduce premature wear to seals and other motor components.

Many daily service check points are accessible from the exterior of the machine, including an air restriction indicator, engine oil and hydraulic oil levels. Routine maintenance areas can be performed without removing a panel, while other maintenance areas are easily accessed through hinged doors and removable panels.
