Timberline Tree Shears Rotate
The innovative TimberlineÖ Tree Shears from Sidney Manufacturing offer many advantages when it comes to the job of selectively removing unwanted trees, including the ability to rotate after the cut. The TimberlineÖ Tree Shear hydraulically rotates up to 110 degrees with a push of a button from the comfort of your cab. This feature allows the shear to serve as a grapple to lift, wrangle and carry the fallen tree. You can also use the TimberlineÖ Tree Shear to easily and efficiently cut the tree into load size or firewood size pieces; reach high to trim large branches; or reach over fences and other obstacles.
The HTC-14 cuts a 14-in. tree at ground level in 5.5 seconds; the smaller TBL-1000 has a 10-in. capacity. The single blade design of the TimberlineÖ Tree Shear eliminates complicated adjustments and sharpening, and the unique serrated tooth configuration holds the tree during the cutting cycle allowing for predictable cutting. Made from high tensile steel plate, all major pivot points are machined and greaseable for long life. This world class attachment is the professional's choice for land and tree management.
New from Sidney is a wireless control option allowing the operator to wirelessly activate the electric diverter on the TimberlineÖ Tree Shear to alternate between shearing and hydraulic rotation; increasing the ease of operation and reducing installation time.
TimberlineÖ Tree Shears can be effortlessly mounted on a variety of available Skid Steer Loaders, Compact Excavators, Telehandlers and Tractor Loader Arms.
