Now the hopefully proud owner of a Tree Shear
« on: July 24, 2012, 06:47:34 PM »
I had a Tree terminator with grapple brought out for a try. I cut everything from honey locust to bowdock and red ceder. I examined the bottom of the cut and lost less than 6 inches to shear cracks. Since this is a machine that shears at the ground level 6 inches below where I would saw it I think it is going to work out. 
 Along with the Mill I guess I am in the fence row clearing business.
 I have 60 acres of woods that are heavy in Red ceder much to be cleared for Chips.

Does it look like this? :) We have used tree terminators for almost eight years cutting cedar in Oklahoma. I just bought a second one a year ago and had the first refurbished and sent to my dad's in Indiana. They are very well built and have been very happy with them.  The one in the picture we actually acquired with a woodmizer. I cleaned it up and sold it to a guy in Texas since I had just bought the new one.

Good luck with yours. I think you will be happy with it.

It has two 20 inch blades. I have cut some 30 inch cedars with it but it takes several bites. The ones we have are made to fit skid steers.
