New for spring of 2012 is the RG1645S self-propelled stump cutter from Rayco. This compact unit takes Rayco’s popular RG1645 platform to the next level of performance with a heavier cutter wheel and improved cutting torque. A swing-out operator control station allows for maximum visibility of the cutting action while keeping the operator shielded from chips and debris, and swings in line with the machine to pass through gates. Wider tires help improve floatation and traction, and removal of the outer dual wheels allows passage through 36-inch gates. The RG1645S is powered by a Kubota 44-hp. turbo-diesel engine that meets tier 4 interim emissions.
