Barreto 30-SGB Stump Grinder
An offshoot of the dependable TK track trencher, the 30SG stump grinder features a variant of the same time-
tested track drive platform used by the TK series. The 30SG has a hydraulically-driven cutter wheel that is raised
and lowered into the stump and then moved from side to side to cut down. The 30SG power options consist of a
31hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard V-Twin or a 26.5hp Kohler EFI engine. The engine is coupled to two gear pumps:
the larger gear pump drives the cutter wheel and the smaller pump works the tilt and swing cylinders. The tracks
are driven by independent hydrostatic pumps mounted on the rear of the engine for easy access and simple
linkage control. Counterbalance valves on each track drive prevent the track motors from slipping while the
cutter wheel is engaged in the cutting process, even while operating on a slope.
The cutter wheel operation and articulating arm are operated by controls mounted on the console. The cutter
wheel is activated by a switch on the control stick and has a secondary safety switch to prevent accidental
engagement. Back and forth movement across the stump, as well as depth of cut, are easily controlled by handles
on the console, allowing for carefully controlled movement of the cutter wheel as it reduces the stump to chips.
All hydraulic drive to the cutter wheel eliminates costly belts. It also increases customer satisfaction by ensuring
there is no loss of power because of a damaged belt or mechanical component. The track drive increases
maneuverability around the job site, creating customer satisfaction by allowing them to get the job done with
