Get to Know the Tree Slayer

If you’d like to add the Tree Slayer to your equipment arsenal but want to know more about its capabilities, we’re here to give you all the facts on this great tree cutting attachment.


The Tree Slayer Won’t Just Cut Trees

Most tree cutting and brush cutting attachments are designed to complete one singular task – remove dense vegetation, or remove thick trees. If you work in the tree clearing or landscaping industry, you don’t have the time to swap in between attachments. You need something that can do it all.

Instead of alternating between multiple excavating attachments, which derails your workday, we’ve designed our Tree Slayer to do more than just remove dense trees. The Tree Slayer is capable of cutting down trees, trimming overgrown areas, removing dense stumps and roots, in addition to its ability to gather all your debris in one area. Now, you’ll have an attachment that works as hard as you do and won’t ever back down from the challenging demands of your job site.

At Rut, we understand that your time matters, and you expect a lot out of your equipment. Instead of spending extra time changing your excavator attachment, now you can get manage an entire job, all with one incredible piece of machinery.


The Tree Slayer is Customisable

Not all excavator cutters are optimized to do multiple jobs, but thanks to the Tree Slayer’s incredible features and add on’s, you’ll be able to get your work done in half the time.

Our Tree Slayer is ideal for optimizing your workload all on its own, but we also have a few customizable features that take this excavator attachment to the next level. These incredible features are:

  • Mulching teeth
    • Your Tree Slayer is designed to cut trees with efficiency, but when you add carbide tip grinding teeth to the bottom of the Tree Slayer’s blade holder, you’ll enjoy more power and efficiency out of the cutter. Carbide teeth are durable, low maintenance, and are capable of cutting even the toughest materials. No tree is too tall or dense for these incredible teeth. Plus, carbide mulching teeth also have a much finer cut and are less of a hassle than standard mower blades.


  • Selector valve
    • If you want to get more out of the Tree Slayer, then you’ll want to add a selector valve. The selector valve goes up to 40 GPM, and lets you get more out of your cutter, even if your excavator isn’t equipped with dual auxiliary hydraulics. The selector valve attachment comes with the wiring harness and a switch that enables you to switch between cutter mode and thumb mode effortlessly, giving you more control over your Tree Slayer.


With or without these additions, the Tree Slayer is capable of getting the job done in no time so that you can move on to other tasks throughout the day.
