    Anyone know anything about CAT's high flow stump grinder "CAT SG18B"

    I am looking at one to go with the 272c. We have really hard, dead oaks around here. I can mill them with a brush mower but they are tough on the carbide. I was hoping a skid steer stump grinder would do a good job and have enough torque for this hard wood.

    There kind of a non issue with us. We sell them, but never see them again. That is either a really good or a really bad thing.

    The only thing I've ever had to do was replace a seal in the motor due to barb wire grinding.

    Thanks. I'm not too worried about CAT quality. I am more concerned with productivity on hard oak stumps that have been dead a while. I hate getting anything wrapped in wire!

    Trying to recall from my days in the rental business....

    If I remember correctly I think they use the same bits as a Rayco Grinder, if that helps.
