Is Dipperfox a stump grinder, stump cutter, stump drill or stump crusher?
Dipperfox combines all the elements of all the tools mentioned above.
A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool the size of a lawnmower or as large as a truck. Most accomplish tasks by employing a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips. A typical stump grinder/cutter incorporates a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth.
Dipperfox differs from similar products primarily in the drilling speed and efficiency achieved through dynamic gear changes, replaceable blades and replaceable end bolts.
High-speed stump grinders and stump cutter also create noise and flying debris. Reduced noise pollution and no high-speed objects, compared with grinders – saves operator and saves people surrounding the job-site.
Is Dipperfox a stump drill?
The drill differs from the stump cutter primarily in the speed of rotation of the blades. If milling allows the top of the stump to be removed to the ground, Dipperfox also removes the stump core with a Dipperfox drill.
The cutter is sensitive to all obstacles. The blades can break in contact with a stone or any metal object, and the blades bounce off quickly when working on the ground.The stump drill works quietly and persistently, and its parts do not need to be changed often.
Is it a vertical stump tool for removing stumps?
No. The boom attachment, which allows you to set the required lever force, enables the Dipperfox to drill the stump at an angle that may be necessary for larger or crooked stumps.
Is Dipperfox a slow speed drill?
Yes. Compared to a stump grinder Dipperfox has low RPM ranging from 20 — 60 RPM.
Does low rotation speed mean longer processing time??
No. Due to the different design, Dipperfox will do the same job, but 8-10 times faster than a vertical stump grinder and with a much lower rotation speed.
Is Dipperfox a hydraulic stump cutter?
The drill differs from the stump cutter primarily in the speed of rotation of the blades. If milling allows the top of the stump to be removed to the ground, we remove the stump core with a Dipperfox drill. The cutter is also sensitive to all obstacles. The blades can break in contact with a stone or any metal object, and the blades bounce off quickly when working on the ground. The stump drill works quietly and persistently, and its parts do not need to be changed often.
Is Dipperfox just an excavator boom attachment?
Dipperfox is a professional tool attached to the end of an excavator boom. The cutting blades of which are rotated by a hydraulic drive with a gearbox and which, figuratively speaking, cuts the stump into slices all the way to the branching roots.
Stumps are crushed very quickly and in an environmentally friendly way. It takes an average of twenty seconds to crush one 45 cm high stump, so up to 180 stumps are crushed in one hour.
How fast is Dipperfox compared to similar products?
Stumps are crushed very quickly and in an environmentally friendly way. It takes an average of twenty seconds to chip one 45 cm high stump, so up to 180 stumps are crushed in one hour.
Dipperfox is 10 times faster than other known stump removal methods.
Can the operator change the cutting blades at site?
Yes! For example, to replace the blades, it is unnecessary to disassemble the entire housing to which the blades were attached, which could be very inconvenient for the operator at the worksite. Blades can be changed individually and quickly.
Can the operator sharpen the cutting blades at site?
Yes. For sharpening the blades, there is no need to disassemble the blades. The only tool required is an angle grinder.
What about the stump leftovers?
Only thin chips remain from the stump. The chips mix with the soil and decompose into environmentally safe humus over the years.
What are the use cases for Dipperfox?
It is necessary to get rid of stumps when felling the forest. For example, suppose there are plans to build on the logging area, like installing a power line maintenance area. In that case, the equipment can move as required once the stumps have been cleared.
Another example is the construction of new conventional and light transport roads. This was done by uprooting stumps, which is labour-intensive and time-consuming.
However, with Dipperfox, the stumps can be crushed clean without damaging the surrounding surface. This way, you can quickly and easily get rid of stumps in city spaces, parks or alleys.

What is the most significant benefit of Dipperfox?
Thanks to new technology, Dipperfox helps users save time and money and gain a competitive advantage. Compared to stump clearing, Dipperfox gives 10-15 times more efficient, measurable value for money.
Dipperfox is a professional tool for excavators weighing an average of 12-30 tonnes. Instead of ploughing stumps and wasting time, fuel and damage to the ground, Dipperfox instantly drills the stump and solves the problem. In addition, it eliminates the process of removing uprooted stumps.. It is always possible to choose the process of drying and cleaning the stumps, but handling them is a time-consuming and resource-intensive activity. The stump drill preserves the natural surface around the stump and is environmentally friendly in all respects.
What are the technical requirements for the excavator?
Excavator requirements: 14-30 tonne excavators with minimum power of 74 kW (100hp)
Hydraulic oil consumption: 110-220 litres per minute.
Oil pressure: 180-320 bar.
Working speed in ideal conditions — crushing one stump together with positioning — 20 seconds, 180 stumps per hour.
How long is the service interval?
Dipperfox is easy to maintain and has a 250-hour oil change cycle.
How the Dipperfox is attached to the excavator boom
Dipperfox is attached to the boom by a quick coupler.
Are there any sensitive electronics or controllers inside the hull of Dipperfox?
Automatic speed/torque adjustment (built-in long lasting 2 speed planetary gearbox)
No electricity, no cables to connect (fully hydraulic operation)
Unit can be stored in outside conditions (no sensitive electronics, no corrosion on contacts)
