Telescoping Clipper Head Reaches Taller Branches
Precision Manufacturing has found a way to make its heavy-duty clipper head more productive. The Shawnee, Kansas company now makes a Tele-Clipper telescoping boom that hydraulically extends the head’s cutting surface from 7 ft. 3 in. to 10 ft. 3 in.
  “Customers have asked for more cutting height to make room for equipment along the edges of fields and right-of-ways,” says Precision’s Bill Reed. “Now people can trim limbs higher than ever to remove nuisance branches that can break mirrors, damage cabs and bend combine grain tanks.”
  Reed says the operator controls all aspects of the Tele-Clipper inside the cab with a wireless remote or with the machine’s electric toggle controls. The cutting head rotates 180 degrees so the clipping action can be aligned with the angle of the branch being removed.
  The Tele-Clipper includes Precision’s Extreme Duty cutting head for slicing branches and trees up to 8 in. dia. The powerful 5 by 8-in. cutting cylinder produces almost 25 tons of pushing pressure at 2,500 psi. Blades are made of 3/4-in. tempered steel and mounted on hardened pivot bushings with grease zerks. The clipper has extra long upper and lower cutting plates for easy release of the tree or limb being cut. The self-cleaning side spacers reduce everyday maintenance of the cutting head.
  Precision’s Tele-Clipper mounts on skid steer quick-tach brackets and has flat-faced quick hydraulic couplers. It weighs just over 1,000 lbs.
