Vermeer SC70TX

The SC70TX is tough enough to withstand large stumps on a commercial jobsite and can fit into tight spaces in a residential area. The track system is designed to decrease ground disturbance. The SC70TX is equipped with safety features such as the patented capacitance-sensing operator presence system and wheel break to help you feel confident on the job.

  • The Operator presence system allows the cutter wheel to automatically stop when the operator releases the hydraulic cutter wheel controls.
  • The ground drive speed helps transport the machine between stumps to increase productivity on the job.
  • The SmartSweep™ control system helps improve efficiency and productivity at the stump while helping to minimize wear and tear on the machine.
  • Gearbox drive cutter wheel system directs the maximum amount of horsepower to the cutter wheel for optimal jobsite productivity.
