With the Model 1200 you can cut a 12” tree with one cycle of the blade. With Model 1600 you can cut a tree 16” in diameter. You can cut any size tree with either model by moving around the tree and making multiple cuts.
The largest tree we have seen was 48” in diameter, cut with the Model 1200 – owners report that it was even larger.
This is where the unique design of the Marshall Tree Saw really stands out. With our tool you can cut, push, pile, and stack downed trees without changing pieces of equipment.
That depends on the type of tree you are cutting (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.
You can sharpen the blade with a flat edge grinder as needed. Stabilizer teeth should also be kept sharp.
The blades are in stock at the factory and can be easily replaced by the user.

It is not needed to operate the Marshall Tree Saw, but the blade’s cycle time is a function of hydraulic flow. So, the more flow, the faster your blade cycling time will be.
It is not recommended for tractor loaders. The Marshall Tree Saw was developed to be used in conjunction with any brand of Skid Steer for safety, cutting efficiency, and maneuverability.
No additional equipment is required. The saw comes ready to hook up and go using the auxiliary hydraulics of the skid steer you are using.
The Marshall Tree Saw is driven off the auxiliary hydraulics of the skid steer. A minimal of 16GPH flow @ 2500PSI is required. Horsepower has no direct effect on the operation.
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.
