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 grapple saw, 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 6,000 Lbs at 96 ft is hard to beat. The real advantage is the stability. Even taking on heavy loads, at full extension, the 505 does not exhibit the extreme deflection that you see with typical knuckle boom jib cranes.
Decreased Personnel Requirements
Treezilla performs the duties of multiple pieces of equipment and their associated crew members. In fact, tree removals can be completed with only an operator for Treezilla and chipper operator. The grapple saw 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 walk around the tree to see the best approach for the cut.
Speed of Completed Work
Taking into account that we here at Timberland are 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. Watch the video and see for yourself.
Treezilla has an overall length from bumper to bumper of 37 feet and it is 13 feet 4 inches. With an actual wheelbase of roughly 240" it gives you a turning radius of approximately 70 feet curb to curb. This gives you about same maneuverability as a common tandem dump truck. The width of the rear outriggers is 26 feet. The width of the auxiliary outriggers is 20 feet. Making a substantial platform for truck operations.
