Rayco Hits the Airwaves on TLC’s ’Mega Machines’ Show

Sat July 17, 2004 - Midwest Edition

Rayco Manufacturing Inc. is set to make its television debut.

Crews from Kaos Entertainment of Los Angeles were recently in Columbus, OH, to film the Rayco’s Hydra-Stumper and Forestry Mower in action and interview Bruce Chapman, engineering manager of Rayco, as part of a program called “Mega Machines,” which is set to air on the Learning Channel in a couple of months.

“We just went to town grinding and mulching and causing all sorts of destruction,” Paula Russell told the Daily Record on June 13. “That’s what they were looking for.”

As part of the profile, a camera was mounted on the cutting boom of the machine, providing viewers with a perspective never seen by humans: a look at what the stumper sees when it is in action.

Crews also brought in a couch and another piece of furniture for the machine to shred as part of the segment.
