    I here good things about the green wheel from customers who have them
    comments like it makes my '25HP like a 35 Hp"
    we need Kevin (Mr Green) to get on here and explain the science behind his wheels
    have put both the Quad and Green on my 38 special

    Mostly have sold the revolution wheel ( it is the successor to the Sandvik)
    they are made by New River
    It is real smooth, does not carry the dirt around the wheel like traditional pocketed teeth.
    using less HP and ejecting everything to the rear, great side cutting
    harder to change teeth (can be turned )

    When I had TNT running, I ran Greenteeth on my little Raycos,
    great product, easy to switch teeth - broke pockets now and then

    Yes that's right it's only like $3 a tooth, I have 2 sets so I can rotate. I got mine from my local bandit dealer, but you can order right from new river.

    Whenever they need it, which at almost $800 Canadian to replace with new I've opted to get them sharpened by Jeff's. They last a lot longer then my old yellow jackets, and are more durable. That said grinding when we even sense a rock ( more less see or hear it) we back the machine off idle it down and take it out of gear and dig the rock out. That's kind of why I didn't go with a remote, I like seeing, getting the feel, and physically doing the stump that way your not pounding the teeth on rocks and not knowing it. Plus I'm picky on who runs it!

    I'm putting new green teeth on vermeer 50tx i acquired today as we run them on the 1635 rayco and love them. I can't get the two pockets in the close position to fit next to each other any advice is appreciated before I reach out to green manufacturing . As well I haven't determined where to place the (2) reverse angle pockets and the (2)straight pockets on the wheel. As the wheel appears to be divided in thirds to me as to there pocket location. I know balance is key to performance and I'm a bit jammed up with this thought.

    I put the quadwheel on my rayco 1635
    Had on the superteeth originally
    Quad wheel
    Pros
    Cuts way faster
    Teeth can be flipped
    Teeth stay sharp longer
    Teeth are cheaper
    Cons
    Throws chips 50'
    Cleanup time double
    Necessary for debris containment screen to protect passerbyers and help with cleanup

    Stock wheel with the rayco teeth
    Pros
    No containment screen necessary
    Very quick cleanup
    Cuts fast when teeth are new
    Cons
    Teeth expensive and only one side
    Not fun to change takes a bit
    Dull out quickly

    i think they make a special wheel for this machine to make greenteeth work on it.

    Got my 50tx dailed in with greens. Great setup. I'll report back with more detail report vs. stock yellow jackets.

    I have a small Bandit, 6 wheeled machine, with 35 HP gas engine. This machine appears to be too small / slow for the average jobs I see. What is the best cutter wheel / teeth combo? I am near the coast and have no rocks.

    Sounds like the green or the quad work well in that hp range. I'd reach out to green manufacturing and talk to them about it. I will say I love my green teeth. I have a 50 horse diesel , so even with dull teeth it's beast. I hate stump grinding , so when I do it I just want it done. We had a 35hp gas rayco and I couldn't stand how long it took to grind a good size stump. Hence why we got a fifty diesel. No matter what you choose for your grinder teeth ,if you see enougn bigger stumps there's no replacment for displacement! Might be time to ante up for mooorrreee pooowwwerrr(y)

    I am facing the fact that I need a bigger stump grinder. Leaning towards a wheeled machine. I really like the Carlton 7015. Where is the best place to find a used machine?
