Tree-Clearing Blade Mounts On A Front-End Loader
To cut a tree, you place the tip of the blade against the trunk and drive forward, letting the angle of the "V" cut into the wood. You can cut through a 24-in. dia. tree in 4 to 5 minutes. Even a small tractor will cut a 6-in. dia. tree in three or four passes. It costs less than. a hydraulic-powered tree clipper and requires much less maintenance because there are no moving parts.
The blade is available in five sizes that range from 7 ft. 8 in. to 11 ft. 8 in. long and fit tractors ranging from 20 to 155 hp. An 8-ft. 10-in. long model designed for a 40 - 65 hp tractor sells for about $1,200. (Joe Dove, Hav-Roc, Inc., RI. 2, Box43, Green Ridge, Mo. 65332 ph 816 527-3780)
