Vermeer launch new cutting system for their stump cutters

Vermeer is enhancing its stump cutter product line with the introduction of the patent-pending Vermeer cutting system (VCS). The VCS incorporates a new tooth design that helps reduce pocket rotation and a cutter wheel that reduces material from recirculating during operation.

The VCS is available now on select new Vermeer stump cutters and will soon be available across the entire line, as well as an option for many existing models.

According to Matt Hutchinson, product manager for tree care, rental and landscape at Vermeer, the new VCS solves many of the challenges associated with traditional stump cutting systems. “Torquing cutter teeth daily is pretty common for most stump cutter users,” he explained. “Bolts that aren’t torqued properly tend to rotate in the pocket, causing premature wear and impacting the performance of the cutter wheel. The tooth design on the VCS has a mounting and retention structure that helps keep teeth from shifting in the pocket while absorbing the shearing force, instead of the bolt securing the tooth to the cutter wheel while operating. This design makes it possible to secure each set of teeth with a single long bolt and reduces the need for retorquing.”

The VCS two-sided carbide V-profile cutter teeth help enhance the cutting performance of the stump cutter and can be flipped to the other side of the cutter wheel for an extended wear life. The redesigned cutting wheel and tooth placement allows material to flow past the wheel after being cut, which reduces recirculation. Also, each side of the wheel is protected by wear plates made from high abrasion resistant steel.

With the new VCS and ever-popular or industry proven Vermeer Yellow Jacket™ cutting system, contractors now have more options to choose from. The VCS will be offered on larger Vermeer stump cutters soon, and across the entire line in the future.
