Shearing trees can be done in seconds with a skid steer tree shear by Bradco. This skid steer mounted tree shear features 1" thick blades that quickly shear through a tree up to 10" in diameter.
Hi, I'm Ted from Everything Attachments and and we're here today with the Bradco brand of tree shear. This particular brand of tree shear is designed to be able to just simply shear a tree shear up to 10 inches in diameter.
Now, after I've sold several of these, so we've finally sold enough to start stocking them. And now after having to being able to physically inspect it myself, I've noticed a lot of differences between what I've seen advertised at less price or more, and even have more capacity like 14 inches. I've done a little research on what and why that different things work better than others.
For instance, not all tree shears are created equal. They've done a lot of research and spent a lot of money doing what it takes to get to be right all the time. If you'll see this allen screw right here behind this is a pretty complicated system to be able so when you close these jaws that they're dead even, and they're tight. In other words, on some of the cheaper ones that I just finished looking at on the Internet. Those cutting edges are welded in there and so if something moves, stretches, gets out of place, that's simply what you're going to have to deal with from now on, unless you're going to break out the torch and cut them off and start over. The same problem after using them a lot is going to reoccur. If you're doing small trees you need those edges be where they're all the way together and they fit tight from the front to the back.
There's wedges where you are able to straighten these cutting edges to where you're always getting a clean cut all the way through for the whole length of the bar. Even though this is rated for ten inches, right now it's 16 inches apart on the end and you can get ten inches deep and still be ten inches wide, so that's where it is meant to cut the ten inch tree. I think you can fake it a little bit and get a little bigger, but it is rated for ten so that is what we are going to say. I think since you can get the jaws where they touch completely together and there's even two different angles that are cut on this to give it the proper cut, so there's a bit of lot of technology. A lot of engineering that has gone into this tree shear. That's why it's not cheapest tree shear on the market, but for long-term use, industrial use, I believe you would end up being the happiest with this piece of machine.
As you shear your tree you've got a guard here so you can keep a little pressure and keep the tree away from your machine. This is rated to do a ten inch tree for 3000 psi. So if you have a older machine, you may only have a twenty-five hundred psi machine, probably will have no problem doing softwoods up to ten inches, but hardwoods, you make it into a little trouble if you have an older machine at a lower pressure.
The new Bobcat that we are using here, which is a T-650. I just looked at the specs on it. It's an operating pressure of thirty-five hundred psi. With this huge diameter cylinder, which lets the torque build up to be able to shear these with the 3000 psi, the cylinder being so big, which makes that move slow but have more power. After looking at everything on here in person, it's a really well engineered piece.
Now, Peanut and I are going out to make some videos with this in the next day or two. We'd like to have used it first so we would know even more, but we want to show it to you before we use it and scratch up and all that good stuff. With everything having greasable pins, a huge cylinder and all the work they've done, I think the most important of a tree shear now, after looking at it, is being able to get blades where they are totally straight and they touch on time sink you get a shear whether you are doing a two inch tree or a ten inch tree.
So if you've got any questions give us a call or an e-mail at everythingattachments.com. Where you will get our how to use this video soon. Anything that I don't know yet, we hope to cover in that video, but we got a lot of trees at my house that need go, so we'll be over there doing them. Just give us a call or an email and we'll make sure that your machine has the right pressures, and so forth to be able to operate this.
