Rotating Cutting Head Feature

 

The Turbo Saw™ Rotating Tree Saw allows the operator to rotate the cutting disc from horizontal to vertical at the touch of a button. A hydraulic cylinder hidden in the frame rotates the head and locks it into position. The pivot mechanism is precision machined and heat treated for durability. A wiring harness and waterproof buttons are included to operate the rotate feature (an 8 pin or 14 pin external plug is available).

TS3 Cutting System

 

The TS3 Cutting System consist of a 4 sided, bolt-on, mining grade, carbide cutting tooth that can be rotated after wear to a sharper edge.

New TS3 Cutting System Features

  • Larger Bolt Shank
  • Countersunk Lock Washer (No Loctite Needed)
  • Bigger 1/4 Hex Head Bolt

Safety Features

Safety is a primary concern of Dougherty Forestry Mfg. Each Turbo Saw™ has more standard safety features than the competition. The operator's manual is contained within a waterproof canister on the skid steer for easy access.

Blade Shield

Blade Shield

A shield behind the blade prevents sawdust from being directed towards the operator

Limb Deflector

Limb Deflector

Heavy expanded metal places a barrier between the operator and the material being cut. This keeps limbs from entering the cab on bushy trees. The V shield above the expanded metal deflects falling limbs to the side of the machine.

Pushing Guard

Pushing Guard

The pushing guard above the cutting disc gives the operator valuable leverage against the trunks of standing trees so they will fall forward away from the operator. The operator puts leverage on the tree while the tree is still connected to stump leaving a hinge to control the fall of the tree.
