It looks like I missed an excellent opportunity to see the Dipperfox stump grinder demonstration last week. I hope that I can see the machine in action very soon! You can see the report from RJ Hall Engineering Ltd below. Dipperfox makes a range of stump grinders, or stump crushers as they call them. The largest machine is the Dipperfox stump crusher 850 pro, which is a high-capacity machine designed for clearing large areas. The only drawback with this particular model of stump cutter is the fact that it requires a minimum of 100 hp. Or an excavator with a weight of 14 to 30 tons; the good news is that Dipperfox are now making two smaller machines which require less power.
The next model down is the Dipperfox stump crusher 600, this is a slightly smaller machine than the 850. However, it also has a lower power requirement which can be useful. The power requirements for an excavator are 6 to 14 tonnes and for a compact loader or compact loader, the size is 2 to 6 tons.
Finally, we have the smaller Dipperfox stump crusher 400 model, which is more universal for landscapers and tree surgeons etc., due to its smaller power requirements. The Dipperfox 400 can be used with mini excavators as small as 1.5 tons. It can also be used on all kinds of loaders and stand-on tracked loaders etc. It’s also ideal for use with the Avant articulated loaders, which are now very popular.
