Vermeer is enhancing its stump-cutter product line with the introduction of the patent-pending Vermeer Cutting System (VCS). The tooth on the VCS has a mounting and retention structure that is designed to help 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 are designed to 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 are made to allow material to flow past the wheel after being cut, which is intended to reduce recirculation. Also, each side of the wheel is protected by wear plates made from abrasion-resistant steel. 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.
