New Tractor Mounted Tree Shear For Compact Tractors
Here’s a new product that will make your life easier: the tractor tree shear for compacts.
If you’ve bought property in the country, you may find the ground overgrown with trees too big to bush hog. And there may be too many to chain saw. If you have a compact tractor, you probably thought a tree shear was not an option. But I’m happy to say that now it is. It’s become one of our best-selling attachments, because it makes a tough and rugged task a whole lot easier and more pleasant.
Fighting invasive locust, hedge, or cedar trees on your property with a chain saw usually ends with torn clothes, bleeding arms and dull saw blades. That can all be history, because this Mini-Clip Tree Shear is a tractor mounted tree trimmer designed specifically for compact tractors and small skid loaders with a minimum 1200 lb. lift capacity. The Mini-Clip will enable you to cut trees up to 7″ in diameter. And you’ll also be able to prune tree limbs without ever leaving the tractor seat.
Because the Mini-Clip is a tree shear for the tractor front end loader, it will cut trees at just above ground level. The grill guard directs them to fall away from the tractor. Equip it with the sprayer option, and the Mini-Clip can even shoot some herbicide on the newly cut stump to prevent regrowth.
I first used the prototype Mini-Clip to eliminate a whole field full of locust trees. The job was done in a fraction of time it would have taken me with a chain saw, with a lot less scratches and cuts.
Use It For Limb Pruning
Once you’ve eliminated your brush, this tractor mounted tree shear can also be used to prune limbs. Not only can the head be extended up to 8′ manually, it also rotates hydraulically, to prune trees effortlessly.
The Mini-Clip Tree Shear Is Available In Two Models
If your tractor does not have existing auxiliary hydraulics at the front of the loader, you’ll need to add this option: The MC7551 Mini Clip. It includes an MP020 Xtra Valve Kit which will add auxiliary hydraulic outlets to the front of your tractor. Those outlets can also be used for other attachments requiring hydraulic flow, such as grapples or blades.
Already have existing auxiliary hydraulics at the front of the loader? Then order MC6651 control kit that includes a battery powered wireless remote. The controller allows you to rotate the cutting head right from the seat of your tractor, so you can start cutting limbs. This is the unit you want if your tractor already has front mounted remotes.
