I've had this 4" x 14" stroke cylinder kicking around for 10 years. I got to looking at tree shears online and decided since I already have front remote, why not? LOL I was gifted a piece of cutting edge from the local highway dept. which I used for the blade. A little work with the plasma cutter and a 7" grinder got it sharp enough.
I don't have a need or place to use it on my little half acre but figured my friend that owns a 100 acres and a pond might find it useful.
I still need to add a couple of upright pieces and maybe something on the bottom to help strengthen that.
I did cut a 5" hard hack with it with no issues.
It has ssqa
