The 18-inch diameter cutter wheel is belt driven, and with a swing of 47 inches, even the largest stumps are eliminated quickly and effectively. Making this narrow but powerful Bandit SG 40 stump grinder perfect for stumps of various sizes.

Plus, at only 29 inches, this machine will fit through any gate, making it one of the most easy-to-maneuver stump grinders out there. The smaller size of this machine also means you’ll get more for your money. The Bandit SG-40 offers those in need of a versatile stump grinder a more economical choice.

Maximum Force, Power, and Speed


The Bandit SG-40 is equipped with a 38-horsepower Kohler EFI gas engine. As the largest engine available for this unit, it gives this small machine plenty of power. This easy-to-start engine also makes The Bandit SG-40 a breeze to operate and control, whether you’re a professional grinder or renting the machine for personal use.

Built with a better sense of gravity in mind, the location of the SG-40’s tracks and tanks offer a more even distribution of weight to provide maximum power, force, and leverage. Allowing you to easily tackle those inclined surfaces or uneven chip piles. Durable rubber tracks also help reduce the amount of shock for a smoother, well-balanced ride over even the roughest terrain.

And with a max travel speed of over 2.5 miles per hour, you can get from stump to stump in no time at all. The belt-driven system allows the machine to transfer the most horsepower available directly from the engine to the cutter wheel.

Intuitive Controls and Enhanced Operator Visibility

This way, no matter where the stump is, you’ll be sure to have a clear view of the grinding action.

Two joysticks allow for efficient control of all machine functions, increasing both the versatility and productivity of this machine. On top of this, the levers and instrumentation have all been designed with proper ergonomics in mind, making the SG-40 a pleasure to run.
