52 Compact Equipment OCTOBER 2018 John Deere SS30 Stump Shredder Optimized for the new mid- and large-frame G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders, the new SS30 model Stump Shredder removes stumps from 8 to 28 in. in one pass. Larger stumps are easily removed with multiple bores. It's low-speed, high-torque auger planetary drive shreds tree stumps with reduced incidence of high-speed flying debris when com- pared to conventional stump grinders, says John Deere. Despite its slower operating speeds, stump removal is also faster than conventional grinders. Site cleanup is easy thanks to the small, contained chip pile produced by the attachment. Operators can bore up to 20 in. into the ground to remove stump feeder roots. For more info, visit booth 1110. ASV RT-25 Compact Track Loader ASV Holdings Inc. recently introduced the new RT-25 Posi-Track compact track loader. Featuring similar dimensions as its more power- ful cousin, the RT-40, the RT-25 serves as an economical alternative for contractors, rental centers and homeowners working in tight spaces in applications such as landscaping, construction and snow removal. Its size makes the loader the industry's smallest sit-in track loader. The machine is safer and more productive than walk-behind and stand-on mini loaders. The RT-25 measures just 48 in. wide for performance in tight spaces and weighs 3,755 lbs for less damage on sensitive surfac- es. It achieves productivity with a 25-hp Perkins diesel engine and 5.1 mph. For more info, visit indoor booth 10134. New Holland Compact Excavators With seven new models ranging from 1.7 to 6.0 metric tons, New Hol- land compact excavators are designed for power, productivity and pre- cision. Advanced and standard auxiliary hydraulics offer a speedy, yet smooth operation while the hydraulic spools, located in the control valve, are engineered to provide more precise flow to each function with less effort. New Holland excavators offer versatility as operators can choose between zero, short or conventional tail swing models to suit the applica- tions. Control levers are easily accessible, and the instrument display is positioned within the line of sight. All models provide a clear all-direction view, ergonomically-designed suspension seat and adjustable arm rests. For more info, visit booth 1054. Bobcat R-Series Compact Excavators The new R-Series compact excavators from Bobcat Co. feature a dis- tinct design, helping boost operator productivity and comfort, as well as machine uptime protection.

Operators will also experience improved ride quality, high-quality finish and a re- designed cab for an improved operator experience.
