    Quick Set Up 

    One of our truck’s major benefits is it’s ease of set up.  No need to unload your grapple, fight to align the pins and connect the hydraulics.  With this combination the saw grapple, or feller grapple, is fully attached and ready to go when you arrive.  A few minutes set up and you are ready to work. 


    Superior Lifting Capacity

    The HIAB XS 505K is a Material Handling Boom.  The added strength compared to knuckle boom jib cranes is clear.  A maximum load of 4,700 Lbs at 92 ft is hard to beat.  The real advantage is the stability.  Even taking on heavy loads, at full extension, does not cause the extreme deflection that you see with the taller tree felling capable cranes. 
















    Decreased Personal Requirements

    Treezilla performs the duties of multiple pieces of equipment and their associated crew members.  A bucket truck and a crane become superfluous.  Not to mention it removes the need for a tree climber. In fact, tree removal projects can be completed with only an operator for Treezilla and another operator for a chipper.  The saw grapple operator can adjust, grab, cut, lower and load the chipper all from the safety of the ground, using the remote control.  The flexibility of the remote control allows the operator to change their angle of sight on the tree.  The increased flexibility also allows the operator to change cut sites with ease. 



    Speed of Completed Work

    Taking into account that we here at Timberland are landscape truck fabricators and not tree professionals, we were able to fell and process an entire oak tree in only 24 minutes.  That is with only a two man crew and a chipper.  I think that is pretty amazing, but I am only a fabricator.  Watch the video and tell me if you think that sounds like a good set up.




    Treezilla has an overall length from bumper to bumper of 38 feet.  It’s height is 13 feet 4 inches.  Yet it's turning radius is 70 feet curb to curb.  The width from the rear outriggers outside dimension is 23 feet 8 inches.  The width of the auxiliary outriggers set behind the cab is 20 feet.  Making a substantial platform for truck operations.
