The Future of Stump Grinding Has Arrived

Award-winning Dipperfox Stump Crushers now available in Canada

Dipperfox Stump Crusher is a brand-new stump grinder attachment for excavators breaking new ground in Canada. Its award-winning design makes stump removal work much more efficient and up to 10x faster than traditional stump grinding options.

The Dipperfox Stump Crusher drills through stumps and their roots up to 36” deep into the ground, and the remaining wood material is chipped and used as fertilizer. There is no need for additional clean-up on logging and land clearing sites – once the work is finished, the sites are fully accessible for maintenance vehicles and provide ideal conditions for newly planted trees. No need to collect, transport, and utilize the remaining grinds – saving time and resources.

Engineered, designed, and manufactured in Estonia, the Dipperfox team aims to be a frontrunner in developing smart, easy to use, and efficient heavy equipment tools and accessories. The Dipperfox attachment received international recognition when it was awarded the top prize in Enterprise Estonia’s “Design Masterclass” product development program in 2020. Since then, Dipperfox has expanded rapidly to include dealers in countries across Europe and around the world, including Canada and the USA.

The Estonian company has partnered with one of Canada’s leading suppliers of excavator attachments, ShearForce Equipment, to represent the ground-breaking new attachment. With nearly 50 years of experience in hydraulic attachments, ShearForce is poised and ready to deploy, service, and maintain these innovative attachments from their branches in Langley, BC, Airdrie, AB, and Nisku, AB.

“The ShearForce team is known for their expertise in specialty attachments for excavators, and they have built up a trusted partnership with their customers over more than four decades.” said Jaana Kulm, CEO of Dipperfox. “They have a deep understanding of their clients’ needs and a wealth of specialized experience. There is a lot of passion and energy in the Dipperfox team, and the ShearForce team is excited to start working with our equipment on the ground,” she continued.

“We have been in the specialized attachment business for a long time and we immediately saw the potential for Dipperfox to serve the needs of our customers in the Canadian market,” explained Brad Dewit, president of ShearForce Equipment. “We were attracted to the Dipperfox product because we could see the clear advantages of such a powerful yet simple attachment, and the production possibilities it gives to users compared with comparable technology and equipment. Our goal always is to meet our customers’ needs with the best equipment available for the application, so our co- operation with Dipperfox was very natural.”


This stump grinding attachment is easy on the surrounding soil. Its rotating blades crush and push all the wood residue into the ground without leaving craters or voids behind. The site needs no additional equipment for cleanup and is ready for new trees to be planted.


Using fewer moving parts increases the crusher’s durability and the adjustable transmission allows to put out maximum power at really slow rotation speeds. This creates less wear and tear to the blades, which means more uninterrupted work.


Dipperfox stump removal attachments do the same amount of work 5-10 times faster than most competing equipment solutions, crushing a stump in just 20-30 seconds. If it’s just one stump, then time isn’t as critical. But if you need to remove 100 or 1,000 stumps, it really starts to add up.

Dipperfox comes in extremely handy if you:

  • Are clearing large areas (performance up to 180 stumps per hour)
  • Have to operate in narrow spaces or if you need to plant a new tree in exactly the same place
  • Work on sensitive (wet) soils (you can drill out the stump without damaging the surroundingsurface)
  • Create or do maintenance works on meadow areas and calculate TCO (total cost of ownership)for a longer period. After removing stumps, the maintenance mowing can be made by wheel tractors.
  • Need to remove stumps on areas with high risk of erosion, for example on steep slopes and hillsides. Then you will drill out the stump just down to ground level and leave the roots intact to protect the soil from erosion.
