If you’re on the job, it takes more than your hard work to keep things on track. To guarantee your projects’ success, it takes reliable excavator attachments to optimize your workload and productivity – and nothing is up to the task quite like our Tree Slayer. The Tree Slayer excavator tree shear cuts, trims, mulches, and gathers the largest limbs and brush with ease. Plus, using our excavator tree cutter optimizes your workload in no time. You can stay on track during the day and waste less time switching between attachments and hauling additional equipment to your job sites. When it comes to dense brush, tree limbs, nothing is better equipped than this innovative machine.



Why Choose the Tree Slayer?


At Rut, every Tree Slayer is designed to handle more than tree removal. We create our excavator attachments with the intention that they can work harder, faster, and longer than any other tree shear or cutter on the market.

A powerful tool on its own, the Tree Slayer does even more when fitted with Rut Manufacturing’s customizable tree shear attachments. With the addition of our mulching teeth, you’ll gain the ability to load and move remaining debris with just the use of your thumb and turn the Tree Slayer into an excellent mulching tool.


If you’re ready to get more out of your excavating attachments, then look no further. Our Tree Slayer is here to work as hard as you do. Our Tree Slayer is perfect for jobs like:


  • Tree removal services
  • Personal property management
  • Farmland
  • Landscaping
  • Commercial property

Get more out of your Tree Slayer with the addition of mulching teeth.


Add carbide tip grinding teeth to the bottom of the Tree Slayer’s blade holder to enjoy even more power and efficiency out of the cutter. Carbide teeth are made from durable material, are low maintenance, and cut even the most challenging materials into fine pieces and with less hassle than standard mower blades. These mulching teeth make our excavator tree mulcher attachment ideal for tree removal, limb removal, stump removal and can be maneuvered over uneven terrain. While many tree excavator attachments can remove and cut down limbs, nothing is as heavy-duty or long-lasting as our tree shear attachment.

With our Excavator tree shear, you can do better, faster work without working harder.


There’s no question that you’re willing to put in the hard work, but with quality attachments by your side, you can make more out of your workday in half the time. At Rut Manufacturing, we design every Tree Slayer to be fast, efficient, and long-lasting so that you can work hard with less heavy lifting.


You’ll gain a competitive advantage on job sites, thanks to the Tree Slayer’s ability to reach narrow areas and untruly terrain that tractors and skid steers can’t. Thanks to the excavator tree cutters’ capabilities, you can take on the most challenging jobs with ease thanks to this commercial-grade unit. Use the extra time you save with the Tree Slayer to schedule more customers, turn more profit, or simply sit back and take in your handy work. In our eyes, rough ground, large amounts of brush, and other untruly obstacles are no match for this high-quality excavator attachment product.


No matter your profession, wouldn’t you rather do better work in less time than it’d take with old school equipment? Well, now you can.


Get ready to tackle your most challenging projects with ease and speed with our excavator tree shear attachment. Make the smart investment and treat yourself to the Tree Slayer today.
