Avant tree shear is an efficient and useful tree cutter, intended for forest thinning, tree clearance and similar jobs where smaller trees need to be cut. The strong grapple takes a firm grip of the tree trunk and a hydraulic cylinder pushes the cutting blade against the trunk and cuts it. The tree is then easy and fast to move away with Avant. If needed, the cutting blade can be turned 180 degrees to point backwards. This means it doesn’t cut and the unit can be used as a grapple only.
