Standard Features

 The Model HB20 Sidewinder, despite its power and versatility, is a very compact unit. Its 30 inch width allows it to maneuver and seek out hard-to-reach stumps and not be left without entry through standard backyard gates. The unit can travel in both forward and reverse directions via joystick control electric switch engagement to assist with positioning. Rubber debris skirts aid in the containment of flying chips.  
 The unique pivot-action base provides a structurally sound and sturdy platform for grinding while the operator swings the cutterhead from side to side. The weight is distributed and well-balanced so that the wheels are not likely to creep or rotate, thus allowing the operator to direct more of his / her energy into the pivoting cutterhead action rather than stabilizing the unit as a whole. This can seriously reduce operator fatigue in managing this durable unit's 700 pounds of weight and power.  
 The belt-driven cutterwheel is 14 inches in diameter by 3/8 inches thick and features eight strategically positioned teeth. The unit has a cutting height of 24 inches and a cutting depth of 12-1/2 inches to allow for complete removal of stump material above and below the ground.  
 Similar to other Bandit handlebar stump grinders a 4.5 gallon steel fuel tank is the largest in its class and keeps time out to refuel to a minimum.
