  • Description

    A new Rhodesian invention for tree clearing was demonstrated by its inventor, Mr. Cary.

    Mounted on an ordinary tractor chassis the GBP3,000 'Cary Stumper' consist of a bulldozer' type scoop in front and tri-pod hydraulic rams at the rear.

    The 'Stumper' is placed with its rear against the selected tree, its 'Bulldozer scoop' is lowered and thrust into the earth forming a recoil base and raising the machine against the tree.... the rear hydraulic rams the exert their 45 ton pressure forcing the tree over at an angle. An attachment grasps the trunk and the whole tree, roots and all, is plucked from the ground like a tooth extraction.

    On a small tree the entire removal takes one minute, increasing as the trees get larger.
