The Ransome Shark Tooth Stump Splitter/ Harvester Model RST 150 is ideal for land clearing contractors looking for a single attachment to saw, split, extract and harvest tree stumps. The operation is simple: insert the tooth; use the serrated edge to saw it; and use the thumb and the flat edge of the tooth to extract and offload it.
Designed for a 15- to 24-ton excavator, the Shark Tooth is forged with rugged AR 400 steel right here in the U.S. It breaks down even the toughest stumps into small enough pieces that you can bid farewell to that large tub grinder. (Click here to find out how the Shark Tooth drastically reduced stump disposal time for one of our customers.)
The traditional method involves using a larger excavator with bucket to dig out the stump. Why create more backfilling work when you can get the job done quicker and with less ground disturbance using the Shark Tooth?
