Wondering if anyone makes a cutter I can attach on my Backhoe to cut big roots. I have seen big cutters on demolition jobs---they work great!
I have a Barracuda thumb that is fantastic, but a cutter would be even better---but I am sure more $$$:gizmo:

Hydraulic Cutter

Thanks for the info on ripper!!
Wonder instead, is there a hydraulic cutter available? Like a demolition Shear--for the end of my backhoe.

Never seen anything like that for a small compact tractor.

As Kenny said I doubt you'll find anyone who manufactures a sheer for a tiny BH. But you'd have good results with a ripper as linked to and also check out Michigan Iron as they make some really nice rippers also.

These guys will get you one if you want...
Gensco Equipment - Mobile Shears

Their GE20R would probably work... and they will include custom connecting linkage.(Had one on a Mini Excavator I used for awhile not much bigger size wise than a 260 but more powerful for sure)

Now it isn't a real big cutting opening (about 8 inches) and it is 4 feet long... and it will be expensive......

And you would need custom hydraulic hookups...

But if you REALLY Want it....:laugh:

Also it weighs like 400lbs... not sure the 260 could handle that....

Me? I'd go with a ripper or buy another machine more suited to the job at hand.
