    What are you looking for ?

    A processor head to delimb and cut or a feller buncher head ?

    I think you will be hard pressed to find anything that small it may have to be custom made.

    Worksaver makes a shear attachment for skidloaders, I think it's max diameter capability is 8 ". I have one, works well, but its heavy (770 lbs), for my RC30 Asv, I always try to remember to watch terrain, and think of what can go wrong, like that poor guy in the above story. The difference in shear models is that the Worksaver shear is mounted on a long (4-5') pole, so in ways it makes it a little safer for limb removal, but you still have to watch like hell when you are operating on a hill, or trimming a big, heavy limb!:nono:
