Timberline Tree Shear - TBL-1000
The "World's Best Tree Shear" is just what we have claimed for the predicessors to this shear. This new model was derived from customer feedback. Customers wanted a smaller shear to mount to their backhoes and mini excavators as well as mini skid steers. The previous models were just too darn heavy to work on these machines because of the extended reach or lighter lifting capacities. We the factory listened and this is the result. This model is designed to cut up to a 10" hardwood tree (green). It features the full 100 degree rotation that made us famous . You can still cut the tree and then rotate the shear to cut it into smaller pieces or pick the limb up and move it.
The Timberline TBL-1000 Tree Shear is a commercial grade tree shear built exclusively to be used with Small Skid Steer Loaders, compact Skid Steer Loaders, Mini Excavators or backhoes. An assortment of mounts are available and some are not. If you order this attachment it will come with a blank flat plate that you can mount your own mounting ears to. If you would like us to provide it with mounts, please advise and there may or may not be a price change to the attachment. It all depends on teh complexity of the mount required.
