Benefits of Hydraulic Systems in stump grinders
In the recent years, stump grinders have improved incredibly in terms of performance. However, this can be attributed to high development in the technology that is used in their manufacture. Among the major breakthrough is the use of the hydraulic system. Over the year the system has been instrumental in improving the overall performance of the grinders. Sandvik stump grinders such as SP5014 4×4 are one of the few grinders that have been designed to use hydraulic in most of the activities such as braking. Here are some of the reasons why you should invest in a machine using hydraulics.
For some operators, especially the newbies, bringing the stump grinder to a stop is one of the most difficult tasks. How can you bring to a halt a Sandvik stump grinder wheel that is rotating from above 700 RPM in a matter of seconds? Well, for the typical stump grinder, that is practically impossible. But with the application of the hydraulic braking system, it is very possible to stop the cutter wheel from 830 RPM to 0 RPM in seconds. So if you are grinding a stump and you suddenly notice something such as rocks, metal part or an accident, damages can be reduced significantly using the system to bring the cutter wheel to a stop.
Ease of use
One of the main benefits of the hydraulic systems is ease of use. The transmission of the fluid is uniform and quick making possible for a quick response. The hydraulic system is employed in the moving the cutter wheel up and down. If you are to use the typical grinder, then it will be very difficult and tiresome to remove the stumps and roots. With a hydraulic system, the user will just be needed to apply a small amount of force to grind stumps. That simply means that they can work for longer and thus increase their overall output significantly.
Lower Maintenance Coast
The cost of maintaining Sandvik stump grinder and more so the teeth can be extremely expensive if the machine is not working appropriately. Most of the cost comes from the high rate of wear and tear in the system. But with the machine parts experience less friction –since a hydraulic system uses fluids- there will be less wear on the wear parts. The teeth will last for longer and that means fewer expenses. So if you are operating on a commercial basis, it simply means more profits.
