The HY-Reach Heavy Duty Tree Clipper is a unique tree cutter that mounts on a boom that extends in front of the tractor or skid steer, so that you can use it to cut off trees at ground level or to reach up and cut off limbs. The unit can be purchased with a rotating mount for cutting and pruning, or with a non-rotating mount, which would be used for just cutting trees. It is also available for rear mounting on a tractor's three point hitch, which is used only to cut off trees at ground level (three point mount doesn't have extended boom for cutting high). The HY-Reach cuts all hardwoods up through 11 inches in diameter maximum, and leaves a clean cut at ground level.
We recommend a tractor of approximately 50 hp minimum (and/or about 5000 lbs gross weight tractor plus loader) to mount the tree cutter on; another standard to use is if your tractor loader can lift a large round 8 ft. diameter hay bale, then you can attach the tree cutter. The cutters are mounted on 6 ft. long booms with the cutter heads weighing approximately 300 lbs.
A tree cutter is the fast and easy way to remove trees that have overrun pastures and fields and fencerows. Remove your trees without disturbing the ground and without using chainsaws. This is also the perfect tool for re-opening, and for cutting new trails, paths, and roadways. Two series are available, the standard series which will work fine for most applications, and the contractor series designed an even stronger frame for use by contractors, tree servies, and cities for day after day use; these units come ready to use, already plumbed with flow dividers (so you can use them on all loaders and skid steers with only one auxilliary hydraulic valve).
Hydraulic powered tree clipper mounts on tractor loaders, or skid steer loaders, or on the rear of tractor's three point hitches
Available with a extended reach boom with rotating head so you can also use the unit to trim limbs
Cuts all hardwood up through a maximum 11inches in diameter. The unit will clip at ground level or below; when cutting trees on the ground - there is a 2 inch sled on the bottom of the clipper which is used for blade support, when cutting at ground level tilt the cutter slightly forward and drop it to the ground in front of the tree, slide the clipper under the tree, this allows the weight of the clipper to sink the 2 inch sleds into the ground and allows you to cut at a lower level
Can be mounted on most loaders, tractors and skid steers, minimum hydraulic pressure required is 2000 psi
Front mount with long boom configuration keeps tires away from thorns
Made for heavy use, it is used by farmers and ranchers, the forestry service, highway maintenance crews, cities, utility companies, landscape maintenance companies, golf courses, parks and recreation departments, tree farms, and aborists
Heavy duty construction includes hardened pivot bushings, tempered steel blades, heavy duty 5 inch x 8 inch cylinder, and self-centering blades
Clipper can be mounted on equipment other than skid steer and tractor loaders including - back hoes, excavators, telehandlers, and bucket trucks are a few applications
The Hy-Reach version of the clipper will cut 6 ft. beyond the end of your equipment
How fast can you cut - there are many variables that affect this, but as a rule you can easily cycle six blade opening and closings in a minute
NEVER SHARPEN THE BLADES - This isn't needed, the blades come with approximately 1/8 inch edge, the force from the cylinder forces the blade through the tree, so the blade doesn't need to be sharp, sharpening the blade will only thin the steel and increase the possibility of chipping the blade
The blades are made of T1 steel, so dirt and rocks do not generally harm the blades
The cutting cylinder is custom made and is a 3000 lb. 5 inch x 8 inch cylinder with a 2 inch rod and 1 1/4 inch pins, at 2000 psi the cylinder produces appoximately 20 tons of push
Minimal maintenance is required, just make sure all nuts and bolts are properly tightened before each use
WARNING: DO NOT LIFT MATERIALS WITH THE UNIT - IT IS NOT MADE FOR LIFTING
