    You guys who have the Sandvik wheels ,would you please tell us what you think of them now after you have ran them for awhile? I don't grind enough stumps to buy new teeth everytime i dull them . We usually sharpen the teeth in house. Last grinder I purchased had GreenTeeth already on it and I am impressed , downside is chips are thrown way too far . We usually do clean-up and it's a Pita. Have also found that some pockets have to be removed to take select teeth off wheel, I didn't like that at all. I keep leaning toward the Sandvik wheel whenever i think of spending anymore money on teeth. Give all good points and any negatives regarding the Sandvik set-up if you would please. Thank You.

    I have the sandvik wheel on my Carlton 8018 TRX. Its a great wheel. I have Rayco machines and the Sandvik out performs the Rayco super tooth. I have 4 rock crusher teeth on the sandvik. I don't have to change dull teeth nearly as much as the Rayco. The Rayco super tooth is nice but Sandvik is much better. I had a problem with the sandvik teeth at first because I was using a air impact wrench and was torquing them to much which was stripping the threads. Guys on this site set me straight on that issue and I have not had a problem since. When my Rayco machines need new wheels I will be replacing them with the sandvik. Its worth the xtra money.

    The Sandvik on my 4012 works well. Cuts fast, doesn't make a mess, and the teeth last great. I've always run Vermeer Pro Series - the Sandvik blows them away!

    The Sandvic wheel and teeth are excellent. Do a search they have been brought up a few times.

    I want to add something that is missing on all the threads. The carlton machines do not come with Sandvik wheels. I have a 100hp 8018 that I was told when I bought it had a sandvik wheel. After talking to New river about my disappointment in how fast the wheel wore out. I was quickly informed that the wheel I had, while looking just like the sandvik was a carlton look a like. I have had my new Sandvik wheel for about two weeks now. The teeth angle, placement, and teeth them self are very different when placed side by side with the Carlton wheel. The new Sandvik is night and day better.

    After using Vermeer teeth, 700,900,1100 series greenteeth, Carlton and Sandvik. The Sandvik wheel is hands down the smoothest, nicest and has the longest lasting teeth. The wheel will take 4-5" of wood a swipe easy.

    I believe the year 2006 was the last year Carlton put a Sandvik wheel (Dura Disk II) on their machines. Their new machines have a different wheel and tooth style, ect.

    Hey Stormchaser...How do you sharpen your sandvik teeth? For years I have sharpened my own Rayco super teeth, but the sandvik are a little more difficult to sharpen because they as you know are squared off. By the time I get it squared off with an nice edge, there isn't much carbide left. Any tips on sharpening them would help me out. Thanks! I am changing over my 2008 Rayco RG66 to a sandvik wheel from New River. I will probably just go with the Dura Disk II rather than the Revolution wheel unless someone recommends the Revolution over the Dura Disk II.
