Limb Hog

I bought a Limb Hog a few months back and just found time today to fab a bracket to mount it. I've been back and forth in my pea brain about how and on what I was going to mount it. Finally had an epiphany today and came up with a much less intrusive way to mount it than what I was originally considering. I used it a bit and though it's certainly not magic by any means it is a way to get to some of those out of reach limbs. The loader blocks the visibility if your all the way up so I mounted one of my cameras on the boom. Still some things to work out but I think it will be very helpful. I will add to this thread as I have more comments about it.

Looks good, I think you need to add a cross support at the fork tips, with a flat brace under and another top brace that has a u-shape notch that fits the saw and secures it from moving up, down and sideways, hold it on with bolts on the outside of the tips. That would be a 2 piece strap that you could just fit the top piece over the square saw and bolt it together, for easy removal. __U __ top or bottom with another flat one.

The same type of brace you have on the bask, put another on the front, except add bolts instead of C-Clamps. But don't drill any holes in the forks.
I actually need to have it more toward the tips of the loader forks to get more reach. The saw is made to not need any mid support. It's actually quite sturdy. It's why I bought the Limb Hog and not the Limb Saw. The Hog is made of larger tubing and is much more robust than the Saw. Yes, I have it C clamped on so I can determine exactly where it needs to be mounted before I make the final version of the bracket. All of this was done to prevent drilling holes or welding on the fork frame or on my skid steer adapter, which was the other idea I had for mounting it.
Hmmm.... that looks handy. WIth the addition of a loader grapple for cleanup after.
I have that as well.
Good Ideas. Nice to some else thinking outside the box. I would invert the forks to gain an extra 4? foot of height. I did this with my Limb Saw. I would slide your mount to the end of the forks, and make a cross brace for the back of the forks to hold them the same spacing as bracket mount.

I did drill 7/8" holes in the end of the forks for the mount I made up, so I could get an additional 4? foot in reach. I was going to put the holes in anyway to be able to hook wagon tongues, equipment to the forks. Super happy with how it turned out and how it works.

I to like the limb Hog a little better also because of the heavier gauge tubing. Was all set to buy the Limb Hog, when I found an ad on E-Bay for the Limb Saw with a "Make An Offer" option. Threw him a really low offer that I thought he would NEVER take, and , well he did. It has been working out quite well. If using and running these right, people really shouldn't be bending the mast or cutter bar. I have used mine a great deal and all is good.

Here is my thread. Allen.
