Timberline TBL-1000-EX Excavator Tree Shear

The Timberline TBL-1000-EX Tree Shear for excavators is ideal for cutting hardwood trees up to 10" in diameter. Pick up sections and carry them away, reach up and trim a standing tree, and more!

The "World's Best Tree Shear" is just what Timberline have claimed for the predecessors 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. Timberline 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 Timberline 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-EX Tree Shear is a commercial grade tree shear built exclusively to be used with excavator loaders, compact excavator Loaders, mini excavators or backhoes.

What can you do with this shear?

  • Cut a tree down, pivot the shear from inside your cab and cut the tree into sections.
  • Pick up the sections and carry them away.
  • Reach up and trim a standing tree.
  • Clear downed trees quickly and easily.

What can it cut?

  • Hardwood trees (Green) up to 10" in diameter. 
  • Larger softwood trees.
  • Jaws open large enough to allow a 14" tree, however we cannot guarantee it will cut as it is dependent on the hardness of the tree.
  • Limitless uses in logging and timber operations.

What can it not cut?

  • Tires
  • Steel
  • Scrap
  • Wire
  • Dead Animals (Believe it or not, this question has been asked more than once)

Since your machine has only one set of hydraulics, the shear has an on-board solenoid valve that switches the hydraulics from shear mode to pivot mode. With Attachment Control select above, everything is supplied and you do not need to provide anything except about an hour for installation.

Our attachment can plug directly into your machine and operate from your stick controls.

The price now includes 1/2" flat faced couplers and free hoses. It is your responsibility to ensure that these are the correct couplers for your machine.  Check the accessories page for detailed descriptions of the different types of couplers.
