- STUMP-GRINDER ATTACHMENT Bobcat's new SG60 stump-grinder attachment can grind a stump 30 inches in diameter to a depth of 10 inches below grade in less than 10 minutes. The grinding head is mounted 90 degrees to the operator, providing more visibility to the cutting area. The swing cylinder generates an arc of 80 degrees, allowing the operator to cut up to a 45-inch diameter stump without repositioning. Loaders with 20 to 22 gpm hydraulic flow provide satisfactory operation. Bobcat

Supplies - MOWER DECK TREATMENT MDI Products' MO-DECK helps prevent clipping buildup and clogging in all types of mowers. The treatment, which is sprayed on the undersurface of the mower, helps it cut cleanly and efficiently. It reduces the adhesion of clippings to the deck or components of the catching systems. On mulching mowers, the treatment can reduce the clumping of wet grass under the mulching deck. Advanced Power Systems International
