    I bought the saw without the grapple from DFM. Works great with no problems. Biggest tree so far is a 12 inch locust. Took two swipes

    Did you post some videos on YouTube? I recognize those pics. If so, thanks for doing that!

    Do you like it without the grapple? That is the one I'm really looking at. Do you have trouble pushing the tree away from you without the grapple on it?

    My wife and I use a system where we trade off cutting them down while the other drags them to the burn/chipper pile with an ATV. Keeps the tractor busy at all times so the cutting goes fast. The only problem I have had is with trees that have very long drooping limbs, like locust because the limbs hit me first before I can get the saw on them. This only happens with the biggest trees though. Just takes a little practice. Anything too big to drag off by the ATV gets cut in half with a chain saw first. I do keep my bucket on the front for balance though. I probably have 500 - 700 more cedars to cut down.

    I have cut hundreds of Red Cedars ranging from 3" to 20". The larger trees need to be approached from two or three angles and then I sometimes have to push them over with the FEL. You can certainly cut trees with a chainsaw, but not nearly as quickly and, more importantly, not below ground level as the Turbo Saw lets you do. You "grind" the stumps of larger trees with no problem. I have also cut Persimmons, Cork Elm, Black Willows, Hackberry, and Oaks too. I can do a lot of damage in a short period of time and I am using ith with a MX5100 Gear Tractor. An HST would make it even faster. I have ordered a WR Long Grapple for my FEL so I will soon have the total package.

    I spent the first five years using chainsaws. I can clear in one day what it used to take me a month of weekends to do.

    EXCELLENT! I'm glad to hear. The only regret you'll have is not ordering it sooner

    That is gonna be deadly combination for those cedars now!

    It looks there is another option (from Brown Manufacturing) for the 3 point tree saw now....

    Looks very similar to the Turbo Saw. Brown TreeSaw | New Product | Brown Manufacturing | 800-633-8909

    I think either the grapple or if you elect not to have the grapple (it is an option), there is a push bar on the back.

    What is the largest tree that can safely be cut? I see another post above that a larger tree can be cut in 2 or 3 passes but does that not leave the tree semi-teetering when pulling out and lining up for another pass on another side of the tree?

    I am considering purchasing one but most of my trees are 18 - 24" in diameter. Some a little larger.
