Powerful Koala Tree Shears

Made from high strength steel, and armed with a replaceable blade, it comes as no surprise that the Koala Tree shear has become a success around the globe. The MDE Koala range was designed with a purposely built heavy Hardox chassis. This ensures it is stronger, more resilient, and robust, than any tree shear in its market category.

Koala tree shears are hydraulic attachments, that connect to an excavators hammer lines. The hydraulic cylinder pushes the Hardox edge through the tree, and shears it. The benefit this design has, is that when the tree is cut, it can be placed to a safe location.

MDE offer 5 cutting diameter models in the Koala range. This is suitable for excavators 1.5 – 40 tonne. Through years of testing and re-designing, MDE has developed an efficient, powerful, high quality attachment for cutting trees. With our signature replaceable wing style blade, which was the first on the market.
