Ok first this is going on the 272C with the XPS high flow hydraulics. I know I don't need High Flow for some of this stuff and that is fine. First, we are looking at tree shears. We will be doing a combination of overhad limbs and actual tree shearing. I would say a 50/50 mix. Because of this a rotating shear is important to us. This is not for business use but, I don't want to buy a junker. We are looking at these: Dymax 14" rotating shear http://www.treeshears.com/ranchaxe14rotate/default.htm Houle 15" rotating shear http://www.fabshoule.com/ts15_an.htm Timberline Commercial 14" Shear http://www.timberlinetreeshear.com/index.html The Dymax appears to be the best quality but, it is TWICE as much! I also talked to several people that have shears and they say the double bladed shears are more maintenance and the blade when getting dull do not shear as well. So far I talked to 3 owners of the Houle and they love it and have nothing but praise! Do you guys have any experience? Second is a Brush Grapple. WE will be chopping and cutting brush and trees and need a way to move them. I really felt like we could get away with any of them and be fine. I am going to go with a narrow grapple because we will be in and out of a lot of tight spots. Houle Grapple: http://www.fabshoule.com/brush_an.htm Virnig: http://www.virnigmfg.com/Pages/Products/brush_rake_grapple.html SSS: http://www.skidsteersolutions.com/Skid_Steer_Grapples_Brush_Root_s/32.htm They are all similar in price! Does it really matter for picking brush up? Lastly is the brush cutter or shredder. We thought we were 100% for the US Mower but, we came across another HD cutter. Any advise is appreciated on these! http://www.skidsteersolutions.com/Skid_Steer_QA_60_BRUSH_CUTTER_p/qa-60.htm http://www.storesonline.com/site/1286901/product/TS601 They both look similar, smell similar and act similar! I like the idea of the wider 70" cut on the second one. I also like the idea of 4 blades but, I cannot find any other info on them?? The US Mower seems to be stout as well? WE also looked at the Davco and it looks awesome but they only rate it for 4" stuff??? Help me where you can, I have money burning a hole in my pocket!
