    The boom saw in the pic is something that i designed and built. I am not sure if anyone produces a saw simialar or not but I built my own instead. It works great!

    That looks sweet!! If it works good I would get a patent on it. Best of luck!!

    Looks effective. One question I have is how do you transport it? And how are you transferring power to the saw blade? Hydraulic lines run all the way down?

    I've seen something similar to that. I think the power company, or a subcontracted tree care company, had one of those mounted on a something like a Timber Jack. Might have been overkill, but it looked cool anyway.

    Thanks to all that have looked. I do have hydraulic lines running the lenght of the boom to power the saw, I also have a electric controlled diverter valve to operate a hydraulic cylinder that gives it 15 degrees of tilt in each direction to compensate for working on side-hills. The saw operates on low flow hydraulics and spins at about 2200 rpm. It is a 26" carbide tipped sawblade that I purchased from ebay for about $30. I have thought about a patent but not sure what all is involved in all of that. As for transporting it, I can set it on the trailer next to the machine and still be just under legal width.
