About Us and the Marshall Tree Saw

While standing alone as the only product that is solely owned by the company, it joins many products manufactured by Hill Equipment’s high standards for some of the country’s top industries.

The History of the Saw

The Marshall Tree Saw was not created by accident. This saw was intended from the start to replace most equipment associated with the old style clearing land and is taking its place in history.

The simple design that began in the field over 20 years ago has continued to be refined and simplified to the current models now available. Because of gains in the fabrication techniques’ and welding ability the Marshall Tree Saw has made a simple but strong efficient saw. Don’t be fooled by the simple design, there has been thousands of hours of engineering and design changes to create this fine piece of equipment being used today.

The Marshall Tree Saw is a fine example of American ingenuity combined with state of the art technology. It is a testament to the original design that there are many Marshall Tree Saws out there today operating that are over 20 years old! The old chainsaw and other dangerous methods of tree removal are still prevalent in the field today, however, because of the Marshall Tree Saw we are changing history of modern tree removal. The principal of Keep it Simple is still guiding the development and manufacturing of the saw today.

Our Story

With that American ingenuity that causes most great products to be born, the Marshall Tree Saw was developed by a hard working individual in Nebraska who was cutting unwanted Cedar trees from pasture land with a chain saw.

He knew there was a better way…and after several working prototypes and field trials of each; over the years of development what you see today in the Marshall Tree Saw is the result of this man’s tireless effort to build a better way to remove unwanted trees and to make the land more productive.  

In 2001 enters Cheryl J. Hill owner of Hill Manufacturing, Inc, a successful Broken Arrow, Oklahoma machine and fabrication shop looking to diversify from the oil, gas & aircraft industries that dominated her business.

Since that year the Marshall Tree Saw has become a crucial part of Hill Equipment, Inc’s. portfolio of business.

While standing alone as the only product that is solely owned by the company, it joins many products manufactured by Hill Equipment’s high standards for some of the country’s top industries.
