Timberline TBL-1000 Skid Steer Tree Shear 

The Timberline TB-1000 Tree Shear for skid steers has multiple uses, you can 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.

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 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 as there may or may not be a price change to the attachment.  It all depends on the complexity of the mount required.
