What is the largest tree you have ever seen cut?
The largest tree we have seen was 48” in diameter, cut with the Model 1200 – owners report that it was even larger.

How long does the blade last?
That depends on your cutting the type of tree (hard or soft wood), soil conditions (rocks, sand, etc), and hours of use. Some operators replace blades every other year, others last even longer. You can expect 750-1500 hours of service in a single blade.
Can you sharpen the blade?
You can sharpen the blade with a flat edge grinder as needed. Stabilizer teeth should also be kept sharp.

The Model 1200 weighs 1580lbs and the Model 1600 weighs 2000lbs. the Skid Steer attached to the Marshall Tree Saw should have a lift capability able to handle the above listed weight. NOTE: When calculating lift capability, be sure to account for the weight of the trees you will be handling.
Which brand of skid steer is the best?
The Marshall Tree Saw works well on any brand of skid steer if it meets the required hydraulic and weight specifications.
