Why You Need Tree Cutting Equipment

If you’re planning to eradicate unwanted trees on your property, you’re looking at a lot of hard work ahead. Why not streamline your experience and optimize your time and efficiency with the right equipment?

When you want tree cutting done right, you need tree cutting equipment. Tree trimming is often an overlooked job on a property. Whether you’re tackling a tree stump in your front yard or a tree trying to grow into the road, tree cutting has risks that need to be considered before you attempt it. Like any job, tree cuttings are easier with proper equipment.

Using tree cutting equipment to cut down the tree yourself will save you time and energy, but it can be challenging to decide what tree cutting equipment you should invest in.

When tree cutting, tree removal, trimming, pruning, or other tree work is necessary, you need the right tools. When you use tree-cutting equipment from Rut Manufacturing, you can trust that you’re using the most robust brush cutter attachments that will save you time and effort.

If you need tree cutting equipment or tree cutting services, make your property beautiful again with Rut’s expansive range of tree cutting equipment. Whether you’re completing a professional job or maintaining private property, Rut has exactly what you seek. 

Below, you’ll find different types of tree cutting equipment and labor-saving brush cutter attachments options that will cut through unwanted growth in no time.

5 Types of Tree Cutting Equipment

Before deciding what tree-cutting equipment is best for your needs, here’s a quick rundown of the available types.

Brush Cutter Attachments

Brush cutters are tree-cutting equipment attachments with a rotating blade at the bottom, and it can be purchased as either a mini-excavator attachment or skid steer attachment. It’s an effective tree-cutting tool for clearing large areas of vegetation in a short amount of time. You may need tree climbing equipment to use a brush cutter since some models don’t cut tree limbs too high. The tree-cutting equipment should be paired with tree climbing spikes and boots or harnesses to be effective.

At Rut Manufacturing, we offer the best brush cutter attachments in the business. Our made-in-the-USA products are efficient and durable pieces of tree cutting equipment.

Tree Root Cutter

A tree root cutter is tree cutting equipment used to cut tree roots under the surface. It uses hydraulics, and sharp blades and works from a small excavation machine or a compact tracked excavator. This tree cutting equipment can be attached easily, and it also prevents damage to tree crowns during tree removal.

Tree Shear

A tree shear is another type of tree cutting equipment utilized to cut down trees up to 1 foot in diameter. This tree cutting equipment is fast and effective, but tree cuttings won’t be as small as tree cutting equipment that uses a tree masticator chipper.

Tree Masticator Chipper

A tree masticator chipper has a rotating drum with sharp blades, and tree care professionals commonly use tree cutting equipment like this for tree removal tasks. Sometimes two tree cutting equipment options are used at once: a tree-topper pruner cutter and a tree masticator chipper tree cutting equipment. 

The tree-topper pruner reaches tree limbs, and the tree masticator chipper will take care of the tree cuttings left behind by the tree-topper pruner cutter.

Sawmill Tree Cutting Equipment

A sawmill tree cutting equipment is another option for making wood chips out of tree trunks and stumps. This tree cutting equipment works best for tree felling or tree cutting that produces tree cuttings up to 14 inches in diameter, but it can be used on tree cuttings as small as 10 inches.

Safety Precautions 

Before you use tree-cutting equipment for trimming trees, keep these things in mind.

Always be safe, and never use tree-cutting equipment when you’re tired or distracted. And always wear the proper safety gear, like tree climbing spikes and boots, protective glasses, earplugs, and face masks, along with your hard hat. These tree-cutting equipment options are capable of causing severe injuries if operated incorrectly.

When the brush cutter attachment is used, make sure bystanders are far away from any flying debris. 

When tree cutting, tree removal, or tree trimming with tree cutting equipment is necessary, always consider what equipment you should use first.
