We enjoy being at the cutting edge of equipment technology and operator training.
It is a remote-controlled high-performance loader crane with grapple and lifting attachments. With this machine, the operator can remove a whole tree while staying safely on the ground! Tree removal with surgical precision. It is completely safe! No climbers. No buckets in the air. No risk of chainsaw wounds, fall from trees, or getting crushed or electrocuted. Trees can be removed much quicker than using standard tree removal techniques. Ostvig Tree’s T-Rex does these completely from the ground and is totally remote-controlled.
The Ostvig Tree T-Rex is a Palfinger loader crane.
It is a powerful machine that helps us reach very high trees. It can reach up to 25 meters high. That is up to 7 or 8 standard stories of a building. It can carry over 18 tons of heavy logs and machines.
And it can turn 360 degrees.
The special attachments like the remote-controlled grapple saw and boom arm, help safely cut, grab and hold very high branches – no need for our men to dangerously climb trees.
The grapple head reaches up and grabs the branch. A saw comes out and safely cuts the branch. The branch is then swung over to be either loaded on our truck or run through our brush chipper. Damage to yards, lawns, and surrounding trees and shrubs is at a minimum compared to regular tree removal.
It makes our tree cutting faster and more efficient – very economic and reliable, very safe and productive.
In addition to the T-Rex, as we promote more tree cutting efficiency, we also use this cool Niftylift Self-Drive SD64 4x4x4.
The SD64 4x4x4 work platform is the ultimate tow-behind and self-propelled machine.
With fully independent suspension and 4-wheel drive, the SD64 4x4x4 work platform can cope with a wide range of working environments and impressive reach.
Low weight design makes the SD64 4x4x4 work platform economical and quick to transport and 4-wheel steer gives Ostvig team the enormous flexibility to maneuver once on site.
Excellent gradeability coupled with a good travel speed allow the SD64 4x4x4 work platform to be positioned and set up quickly, allowing us to finish our work quickly and efficiently.
