Koala Tree Shears

Powerful Koala Excavator Tree Shears

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

We offer a wide range of tree shears with 4 cutting diameter models that suit excavators 1.5 – 30 tons. Attached to an excavator's hammer lines, the Koala tree shears are a hydraulic attachment that cuts trees efficiently with its’ powerful hydraulic ram. With our signature replaceable wing-style blade to be the first on the market.

Through years of testing and re-designing, MDE has developed an efficient, powerful, high-quality attachment for cutting trees. The arm takes a firm grip on the tree and a hydraulic cylinder pushes the hardox edge through the tree to shear it. The benefit this design has is that when the tree is cut it can be placed in a safe location.
