Because the TMK Tree Shear was originally for personal use, it has always grown to be a more versatile tool for personal projects. When the jobs started to grow we needed more features from our shear and with this in mind we have developed multiple powerful attachments. We have made big efforts to create seamless connectivity of our attachments, and that makes it possible to equip the shear to meet the needs of our customer. None of our attachments require any extra hydraulics. We test the functionality of all our attachments by ourselves on our own jobs, so that we can truly stand behind our product wholeheartedly. All of our attachments are designed so it is possible and easy to retrofit them. Because of this we have managed to create a product that can truly grow with the operator and with the work! TMK is one of the most versatile shear on the market because of the wide selection and it is easy to customize.
TMKs Linkage brings versatility and speed to the shears usability. Linkage was originally designed to speed up the workflow when working with hydraulic extension beam, but it also made it possible to use the shear in machines that cant themselves to tilt the shear. Now we can offer a solution for using the shear on skidloaders and harvesters. Linkage has up to 165 degrees angle of rotation, which ensures wide motions and small enough cylinder keeps the speed high. Linkage is attached to the shear with bolts, so it makes it easy to remove from the shear and so the shear can be also used with an excavator if necessary.
Collector increases the efficiency of the shear significantly. Collector works fully automatic with the shears open-close motion all the way to the point where the trees are dropped. When the shear closes the collector arm opens to the other side of the tree. When the shear is opened the collector arm grips the trees firmly and only after this the grapple opens. This way the trees are always firmly in grip. Only when the bunch is dropped one electric line is needed to let the bunch go from the grip. Simple use of the collector makes working easy and fast. Thanks to its high productivity, the collector is TMKs most popular attachment worldwide. Collector is also available with non electric option.
Delimbing gives the last touch to the tree clearing as well as the TMK 300 attachment package. TMK has the first easilly controllable delimber on the market without expensive feeding systems. Delimbing is smooth thanks to the diamond shaped delimber hole. This shape gives the shear a little room to tilt before snapping the tree with the blade. This way is ensured a fast and smooth motion, when the delimbing is fast and more importantly easy. In the nordic countries the delimber is really common attachment because of the demand of stripped trees. Delimber is also possible to use without electricity, and delimber is also easy to retrofit.
Solid extension beam
TMK Tree Shear can be equipped with solid extension beam. Bolt attached plates enables the beam to be taken off easily, if it doesn’t suit the job at hand. Extension is a good fit especially with delimber, as it makes the motion faster and smoother thanks to longer reach. Solid extension was designed to work with tiltrotators to ensure that the sensitive hoses doesn’t get damaged in the bushes, but kept in a safe distance from the branches and minimize the damages.
Hydraulic extension beam
Hydraulic extension beam is professionals choice. Attached to the quick hitch, the hydraulic extension produces the much needed extra reach to the professionals, without sacrificing the agility. Extension beam is about 2 meters long and extends another 1,6 meters. With hydraulic extension beam it’s possible to get about 3,6 meters of extra reach, depending on the place of the bracket. Using the extension is simple and going back to excavation jobs is fast and easy. In the designing process of the beam we have kept in mind the needed features at forest thinnings and clearences, and the machine fits to turn even in the tightest of places with the extension on. The heel of the extension is strengthed and can be used to help the excavator to move in challenging places.
