Homemade Tree Sheer for Marty (MPH)

Recommended Posts

Now byegolly, looks like that could come in handy in my ongoing land clearing projects Kris. Hows he keep the trees from falling on the tractor? My problem when I hook to the small stuff and pull it outta the ground, learned to cut it off at about 5 foot first. Thanks for sharing the idea with me.

The "real shears" used in logging (called fellers or feller-bunchers) have a set of hydraulically-operated "arms" mounted up above that grab the tree trunk, then you shear it off. You can even use them to carry the tree a short distance. But, these are mounted on big log skidders, skidsteers or equipment that's big enough and heavy enough to hold the tree up...

i was thinking the same think.......
Ditto! Looks like it could use a bumper about 2 ft above the blade to push the tree away as you cut.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
