TREE CUTTING—DR Power Equipment unveiled the DR TreeChopper, an ATV-mounted tree cutting tool. Made of durable professional-grade steel, it mounts securely to the front of most ATVs and cuts trees up to 4 inches thick. It requires no external power source or stopping and waiting for hydraulic jaws to open and close around the tree. Forward fixed blades on each side of the device score the trunk and guide the tree toward circular rotating blades in teh center. As the ATV accelerates through the trunk, the blades cut cleanly from each side and its trailing blade shears off the stump smoothly from the back. The stump is left no more than one-quarter-inch high. For more information, call a local dealer or 802-877-1200, or visit www.drpower.com.
