Safe Way To Cut Tree LimbsThe LIMBHOG is a new tree trimming attachment that mounts directly to the front-end loader of a tractor, skidloader or backhoe. The commercial grade chainsaw slides easily into a receiver on the front-end loader and works off the tractor’s auxiliary hydraulics.
The LIMBHOG’s 8-ft. mast allows it to reach limbs 8 ft. higher than the bucket’s reach. It reduces the risk of injury by eliminating ladders, ropes and standing in the tractor bucket. Limbs fall in front of the loader while the operator sits safely and comfortably in the tractor seat.
The LIMBHOG runs at 5,500 rpm’s and cuts 5-in. dia. limbs in just over one second. Since it runs off the tractor’s hydraulics, there’s no gas engine noise or exhaust, and kickback is completely eliminated. The LIMBHOG comes equipped with a self-oiling system and weighs only 85 lbs. making it easy to attach and be operated by one person. It also has the unique feature of reversing the chain to back out of a pinch.
The LIMBHOG usually retails for $2,495, but the company has periodic specials, so call for current pricing. The price through the end of the year is $1,895 delivered. The unit has a one-year unconditional warranty and comes completely assembled and pre-tested with an extra chisel chain. Price includes shipping.
The website includes a video of the LIMBHOG in action.
