Up for sale is my Vermeer Sc252 stump grinder. Year 2003.
I have owned this machine for approx 7-8 years and have done a heck of a lot of stumps with it. The hours are currently 1357. Engine was replaced by previous owner at 1000 hours but I have no paperwork to show you to confirm this. Fitted with a Kohler twin cylinder 25hp petrol engine. Please look at the pictures for the condition. It is no “Looker” and the paintwork or lack of, lets it down a little but it is mechanically spot on.
In my ownership I have replaced : New electric clutch when I first purchased (450.00 plus vat) Replaced the bottom main pivot pin at some point. In the last year or so I have replaced both jack shaft and cutter wheel bearings and the cutter wheel side belt pulleys. I'm sure the main cutter wheel shaft was worn when I did the bearings so changed that also (expensive job!) Machine comes with spare vermeer belts ( approx 100.00) and a set of dual wheels (450.00 plus vat). The dual wheels help a lot when on a wet site or to aid traction. Also they help when grinding and riding over the mounts of chip the grinders pile in front of the drive wheels!
This machine has paid for itself time and time again but this year I bought myself a tracked replacement and this is no longer being used. These machines are great and reliable. I have done some very large stumps with this in my time. Backup from vermeer is also spot on and parts readily available.
Machine is fitted with vermeer yellow jacket teeth. Once one side dulls you can turn them around and have another sharp cutter side. It was running the standard amount of teeth and pockets but I dropped it down to 3 sets of pockets to see if it ground more efficiently as less pockets mean less resistance and drag in the ground. I have not had chance to try it out yet. There is some spare pockets to come with the machine, but if you wanted to put it back to the standard amount of teeth and pockets you'd need to buy a couple of pockets I think.
Great machine albeit scruffy looking. Please no silly offers or tyre kickers or I will simply remove the grinder from sale and keep it! Price is £3000.00 plus vat. I cannot sell with out vat!
