SERIES IV & V FEATURES:
The current models have the same advantages as the earlier units, with
the addition of the following features.
- The hitch used on Skid
Steer applications can be modified for increased visibility of blades from operator seat.
The center column and rear angle brackets can be removed and replaced with Female Implement Bracket, welded
- Square blade braces are now
stronger than the earlier round versions, not welded, and are bolted together. Newer square braces can be
retrofit to any of the earlier units that had round blade braces. Welding on blades is not advisable and may cause
cracks, leading to broken blade. If unfortunate use causes blade to be bent, blades can be cold straightened in hydraulic
press, making replacement unneccessary. Blade replacement is very rare thus far.
- Standard 5" Cylinder
has 2" Shaft, 1-1/2" Thread, and Heavy Clevis. Cylinder clevis pins have been
removed and replaced with Grade 8 Bolts. (Larger cylinder shafts will reduce cylinder power when retracting
from trees that are too big to cut in first attempt, causing damage to machine, blades, etc. when attempting to yank shear
out of partially cut tree!).
