Q. How do
the Vcutters cut trees?
A. All three models cut trees the same way, with fixed blades that do
no move but rather use the forward motion of the skid steer to shear the
tree. The combination of the sharp blades and the gradual taper of the
(V) allow the Vcutters to slice through trees quite easily and very quickly.

A. At ground level to just below, the blades are the lowest part of the
machines so getting a low cut is very easy to do.

A. From half inch in diameter to eight inches in diameter.
Q. How long do the blades last?
A. Thousands of trees between sharping.

to the machine. Then clamp the blade to a work bench and use a hand held
grinder with a sandpaper flap disk.
