With a 99-horsepower, turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine, the Carlton SP8018TRX stump cutter is designed for high production in both clearing and large residential removal applications. The model’s two-stage cutter head drive also accounts for its substantial cutting power.
The Carlton “Razor Cutting System” offers a low-profile holder design coupled with large-faced carbide teeth. According to the manufacturer, that’s why the SP8018TRX provides such a high cut-to-friction ratio, producing highly efficient, large cuts with minimal chip scatter.
The SP8018TRX features large cutting dimensions as well: 43 inches above ground, 18 inches below ground and 80 inches of sweep. Its patented turntable design lowers the machine’s center of gravity, making it stable while providing large cutting dimensions and reducing flex and wear points. The unit’s Caterpillar track undercarriage provides a secure stance and extensive tractive effort.
