A skid steer tree shear is one of those attachments that drastically increase your speed in the field. To start, it has a splitting wedge on the shear that pushes up against a serrated jaw to chop trees down with a single blow. If you haven't ever seen a tree shear for a skid steer, you probably would compare it to a scissors. However, our design only has one blade that passes through the serrated jaw opening on this design. This is done because the passing through actually creates a cleaner cut while pushing the tree to the right. This increases safety out in the field. These tree shears are for sale and can be purchased through our product gurus. Final note, if you have heard of a power axe, this is what they are talking about. A skid steer tree shear is a skid steer power axe.
If you need to clear land of small to medium-sized trees, a tree shear for a skid steer might be a good option for you. A skid steer tree shear is an attachment that uses hydraulic force to cut trees like a pair of scissors. You can shear trees up to 12 inches in diameter in seconds, without any sawing motion. Some benefits of using a skid steer tree shear are:
- You can work faster and more efficiently than with a chainsaw or other tools. - You can avoid the risk of kickback, flying debris, or chain breakage that can occur with a chainsaw. - You can cut trees at ground level, leaving no stumps behind. - You can transport and stack the cut trees with the same attachment, saving time and space. - You can rotate the shear to cut trees at different angles or into smaller pieces.
To start, the single blade allows for a smoother cut with one end holding the tree in place and the other end cutting with the blade. This is similar to cutting anything made of thicker material, a knife is a much more effective method of cutting than a pair of scissors. Additionally, even if your blade begins to slightly dull, a single blade system will continue to perform, while a dual blade system would begin to fail.
