Skid steer chainsaw
« on: January 11, 2016, 03:15:03 AM »
Hello, I own a Case 1840 skid steer and want to build a hydraulic chainsaw assembly for it. Looks easy enough but I need to know which pump would be best suited to attach the chainsaw drive to. Whats the optimum revs, chain size etc.
Its better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Hello, felling 20 year old pines that have been topped into a hedge, they would average say 45cm or 18" in diameter at the base. 6 metres or 20 feet tall.

WOW with a 1840 you better wear your seat belt . one snall hole and you will be on your side or your nose . I would think a 20 ft is going to weigh 6 to 900 pounds with the limbs on . If you are doing a cut and carry [buncher] or a drive thru saw [ tip over on top of you] . Let us know what your plan is for your saw .

Its a hedge, they have been side pruned so are easy to get at, one after the other. All we need is them on the deck and we dont need to lift them at any stage of cutting, before or after. Swipe swipe swipe is all we need to do.

OK let us know how it works out for you . Sounds like a job for a 394 Husky and a tough man .
