Fecon has added three new tree shears to its line of excavator attachments.

Two models are designed for 12- to 18-ton (11 to 16 t) excavators with 15 to 20 gpm (56.8 to 75.7 Lpm) — the FBS1400EXC and the FBS1500EXC.

The FBS1400EXC weighs 2,000 lbs. (907 kg), features a single knife cutting system and can shear trees up to 14 in. (35.5 cm) in diameter. The FBS1500EXC features a dual knife cutting system and can shear trees with up to a 15-in. (38 cm) diameter. It weighs 2,100 lbs. (952 kg).

For 20-ton (18 t) or larger excavators, Fecon offers the FBS1600EXC that can shear trees up to 16-in. (40.6 cm) diameter and weighs 3,500 lbs. (1,587 kg).

All three tree shears provide solutions for clearing trees up and down slopes and other areas that were previously accessible only by foot. They feature grabber arms that work in conjunction with the knife system and acting accumulating arm for bunching trees.
