The Model 2550XP is a high production stump grinder that has the power to go after large-scale projects or big stumps. This Hydrostatic direct-drive stump grinder has the ability to get just about anywhere but with a powerful 44HP diesel motor large stumps are dealt with quickly and efficiently. Using the same beltless hydrostatic direct drive as the Bandit Model 2250XP means maintenance cost are drastically reduced.
The reduced maintenance comes from the high-power hydrostatic motor used to directly power the cutter wheel. This eliminates the need for a clutch, jackshaft, drive belt, belt tensioning system, and the many pulleys and bearings associated with those components. To better handle the side and shock loads of stump grinding, oversized bearings are used at the cutter wheel to reduce stress and machine vibration. For better balance, the engine is positioned at the rear of the machine; this also gives the 2550XP better capability for traversing hilly or steep terrain. Further assisting the 2550XP’s manoeuvrability is the standard four-wheel drive system with dual drive wheels, providing exceptional flotation over sensitive landscape while still offering plenty of traction. The undercarriage is powered by a separate hydrostatic motor that can propel the 2550XP to a top speed of 43 metres per minute, or approximately 2.6 km per hour.
