The little of “BIG INCH” family, only apparently. Equipped with a 10 t of force cylinder, it allows a neat
and quick cut up to 150 mm (6”) diameter, transforming your mini excavator from 1.5 t to 3 t, into an
efficient forestry machine.

Robust and versatile tree-shear, suitable for small breakdowns.
It is an attachment for tractor cranes, mini loaders, mini diggers, telescopic handlers and excavator from 1,5 up to 3 tons.
The high performance hydraulic cylinder operates the grab allowing the trunk cut and its contemporary holding.
It reduces the movements of the operating machine and speeds up the consequent loading, chipping and shredding phases.

OMEF Big Inch was born from the idea to combine simplicity, efficiency and versatility in a single machine, joined with an in-depth design and engineering study. The result is a worldwide success: designed to work on all types of wood, “Big Inch” is able to grab, cut and hold the plant at the same time.

The efficiency of the “Big Inch” shear is granted by the quality of raw material used.  OMEF relies only on wear resistant XAR steel that makes the tree shear incredibly strong and robust and it ensures an outstanding performance even in the most extreme working conditions.

The integrated blade, which provides the highest levels of resistance, hardness and toughness, has a patented and unique profile in the world, making “Big Inch” capable of cutting down plants with a quick and neat cut.

Based on these elements, OMEF has developed the largest range of tree shears on the market with six models available. Big Inch can be fitted on operating machines starting from 2 t up to 50 t and it can be customized with several accessories able to increase the efficiency and productivity, offering the best tailor made solution for all forestry professionals.
