Hedge Trimmer Mounts On Front-End Loader
If you've been looking for a way to trim hedges around your farmyard or between fields, you'll want to take a close look at this innovative hedge trimmer built by Canadian farmer Jack Sired who farms near Pennant, Saskatchewan.
He mounted an old pitmanless sickle mower in a fork-type rock picker attachment that mounts on a front-end loader. The mower is belt-driven by a Briggs & Stratton gas engine that also mounts on the rock fork. The sickle can be operated in either the vertical or horizontal position.
"I call it the Bush Wacker and it lets me trim a mile of hedge in about 6 hrs. - that's trimming both sides and making two passes across the top. Works great," says Sired.
