Dougherty Forestry Announces their latest innovation in cutting attachments: the TR3200 LT. This versatile land tool tackles large or small material in a matter of seconds with safety at the forefront of its design.
The TR3200LT features a heavy duty pushing bar that extends across the back of the attachment. This bar utilizes the weight of the attachment, along with the weight of the tractor, to push material away during the cutting process. Along with the wrap around blade shield and hardened skid plate the TR3200LT does the job in operator safety. Cutting at 3-6” a second this attachment can cut a 11” tree in a single pass, and is rated for a 22” stump with a re-position.
Much like its predecessor, the TR3200, this model operates on a 28- 120 horsepower tractor, but does not require auxiliary hydraulics.
