Precision Manufacturing first produced the HyReach Clipper in 1992. Its patented features make it unique to the tree shear industry. Our tree cutters and attachments are used for commercial tree cutting as well as by landowners to clean fence rows, pastures, timber and etc. The tree shear cuts all types of trees – DEAD or ALIVE! The maximum cut is between 9″ and 12″.
Precision Manufacturing’s Add-A-Grapple and Grapple Rake make easy work of handling brush and debris. Our skid steer attachments and tractor attachments have been especially useful with storm clean-up equipment used for removal of damages caused by ice storms, tornados, hurricanes and etc. The grapples and grapple forks are also useful for picking up hard to handle material.

If there was ever an attachment that was going to be put to the test, it would be the tree puller. That was always in the back of our minds when we designed the model 525000 Tree Puller.
We knew it would be used on large equipment with over 100 hp. There would be pulling, pushing, jerking, lifting, tilting and every other movement possible. Oh, we also knew customers would be digging with their tree pullers.
We designed our EXTREME tree puller with a double row of teeth for a better grip on the tree. The last thing you want to do when trying to pull a tree is to shread or shear the tree. Our teeth are also syncronized to prevent shearing and also allows you to apply a stronger grip. We use a powerful 3″ cylinder to close the blades tight. The cylinder is completely enclosed with a telescoping cylinder guard made of 1/4″ plate steel. The cylinder hoses and fittings are completely protected in both the extended and retracted positions.
If you ever try to pull a tree and it won’t pull, we have a solution. When the blades are in the closed position, they form a spade point. You can actually dig the roots that are preventing you from pulling the tree. There is also a root ripper that will cut the roots as you dig. The root ripper is located on top of the blades.
Add all of this up and you have the best tree puller on the market!
There is one thing you will discover about the Grapple Rakes from Precision Manufacturing. They all have a very large opening which obviously means you can hold more material. Even the grapple rake for the utility and compact tractor has a 50″ opening. The larger grapples have up to a 73″ opening. Large enough to grab a large round hay bale.
Other features include concealed cylinders on larger models. This reduces the chances of getting your hoses and fittings tangled in the brush. We also include subsoil points on the 433 and 444 series for extended wear.
The tines are placed 6″ apart. We have found this is ideal. It’s wide enough to sift the dirt yet tight enough to allow you to pick up small material such as rocks and small limbs.
The XD Series of Tree Shear is the best selling tree shear by far.
