Again, the controls look simple to understand and use — especially the operator presence control with engine shut-down. All three machines are classed as “handle-bar stump cutters”. The RG13 and RG Series II both have 13hp, single-cylinder Honda engines, while the 20hp model is fitted with a Kohler engine and benefits from being self-propelled.
One of the features that makes Rayco stump cutters special is the use of Super Tooth cutter teeth. This patented tooth has extra mass to eliminate bending, twisting and breakage, so reducing downtime while replacements are fitted. Performance is also said to be increased because the strike point of the tooth has a greater clearance from the mounting block, allowing the mounting block to pass by the stump.
The attention to detail on the Rayco stump cutters impresses our tester. He especially likes the design of the channel frame — intended to deflect chips and debris under the unit and so reduce the chance of injury to the operator and surrounding property.
The tester concludes: “If we are working in any of the gardens on campus, the
Series II model would be ideal.”
