Rotating Tree Shear Cuts Two Ways
"You can cut trees off at ground level and then rotate the blade to trim tree branches up to 15 ft. off the ground. You can even cut trees laying on the ground into firewood," says Greg Gregory, Sidney Manufacturing, Sidney, Iowa.
  To rotate the "Timberline" tree shear, the operator pulls a spring-loaded pin and manually rotates the balanced frame. The pin automatically snaps into the hole when alignment is correct.
  A big advantage is that you can reach over fences and other obstacles to cut off branches and then cut them up into any length on the ground.
  According to Gregory, the cycle time is rated at 4.5 seconds at 20 gpm to cut a 16-in. dia. tree.
  Sells for $3,800.
