If you have more acreage, you need more power to keep up with tree clearing, trimming and debris handling. Which makes the SC5540 the perfect machine for the job. 

Crary® Bear Cat®‘s 112 pound balanced rotor and 4 reversible chipper blades have a well-deserved reputation for converting mounds of tree branches into mounds of mulch and compost material. 

Equip your new SC5540 Chipper/Shredder with optional 1-speed  or 2-speed blower systems and it will pile the material where you want it. 

Because the optional blower discharge chute rotates a full 360 degrees and is equipped with an adjustable deflector cap, precision placement of wood chips can mean filling up a pickup box, trailer or wagon for quick clean up and less labor. 

NOTE – For Use On Tractors with PTO Horsepower Ratings From 25 hp to 45 hp
