Fecon FRS15 shears for excavatorsFecon has designed its new FRS15 shears for excavators to reach and cut more trees in land-clearing, right-of-way maintenance, pruning and tree-thinning operations.

The attachment can rotate 360 degrees, meaning better access to trees and also reducing the need for the operator to reposition the machines. It can slice through trees up to 18 inches in diameter and gather groups of smaller trees in its accumulator arm for continuous cutting.

The attachment holds the tree or trees while cutting. Its arms allow the trees to be removed and then dropped where desired.

The Hardox steel blade on the shear opens 29.5 inches. The device weighs 3,420 pounds.
