RG55 Stump Cutter

This is an update to the RG45 stump cutter, the RG55 features a 53.4-HP (40 kW) Kubota Gasoline engine, for an increase of 9HP with a power curve on par or higher than diesel models. The RG55 also provides increased travel speeds.

Operators appreciate the large cutting dimensions as well as visibility and protection of the swing-out control station. For travel through gates, the control station swings in line. Wide floatation tyres and 4-wheel drive allow the RG55 to maintain traction in challenging conditions. A wide hydraulic backfill blade saves time during clean up.

RG80 Stump Cutter

This completely new model has a powerful 85-HP (63 kW) Ford engine and a hydrostatic cutter wheel drive to let the operator vary cutter wheel rpm independent of engine speed. Built to replace the RG70, the RG80 has a high power to weight ratio, low ground pressure and a low center of gravity for increased stability.

True 4-wheel drive means no independent wheel slip. The propel system features Hi and Low travel speeds plus an integrated “creep mode” for precise handling while cutting. Another key feature is the rugged Magnetek™ wireless remote control that is sealed against dust, water, and other elements and made to withstand shock.

TRG Trailer

Both models are available with the custom Rayco TRG trailer. The TRG replaces the TRSJRW/TRSJRWB and TR100 trailers. The new model holds all Rayco stump cutters up to the RG80 and features a heavier axle and wider platform, as well as a TorFlex suspension and electric brakes. The stump cutter is held to the trailer with simple and secure pins, eliminating chains and straps.
