Fecon, a leading global manufacturer of heavy-duty site preparation attachments and forestry accessories, has acquired TREEfrogg, a manufacturer of tree trimming saw attachments for skid-steers and compact track loaders. The acquisition expands the right-of-way clearing solutions offered by Fecon in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry.
Designed to fit small to midsize carriers, TREEfrogg’s patented tree trimming saws allow landscapers, landowners and others users to perform tree maintenance with machines they already have quickly, safely and economically. Fecon will rebrand the saw attachments as Trim Ex.
“We are excited to add the TREEfrogg trimming saws to the Fecon line,” said Jeff Stanley, Fecon’s senior vice president of product development. “This addition expands the offering to our agricultural, rural and DOT customers, giving them a productivity-enhancing solution for selective tree trimming.”
The innovative attachments are an excellent solution for tackling overhanging tree limbs and other vegetation along easements, right-of-ways, roads, fence rows, paths and other applications. Cutting faster than a chainsaw bar, the Trim Ex 26S saw attachment features a 24-inch carbide-tipped forestry blade that spins at 3,000 rpm and operates with standard flow machines between 10 gpm to 27 gpm with no high flow needed. The operator hydraulically rotates the saw head from the cab as much as 180 degrees to optimize the cutting angle and increase productivity. The boom telescopes to 18 feet total length, which provides a working height of 26 feet. Combined, the high-speed saw, rotating head and telescoping boom allow the operator to make continuous, clean cuts from one machine position.
By eliminating the need for chainsaws, bucket trucks or other expensive, dedicated machinery, the Trim Ex 26S attachment can reduce the often manual labor of tree trimming to a tenth of its cost, according to Fecon.
