Fresh air, stunning landscapes, fantastic views and great people; we love our ever changing "office" of farming and rural back blocks.
McDonnell’s Tree Trim has been around for over 30 years. What started out as a simple operation of one man with a chainsaw and bucket truck, has evolved into a well-established, organised company with years of experience behind us.
A long time ago we saw a need for a customised tree trimmer to cut shelter belts and hedges.
We wanted to create a more efficient, safer way to get the job done, so being the inquisitive engineering types, we customised a machine to do just that. And we’re still at it today; we love working with the machinery and continuing to update it to meet new challenges and do the job better than ever before.
We pride ourselves on the variety of jobs we handle, the terrain we can access and the repeat work that keeps us busy year on year. Not to mention most of this is for farmers, undoubtedly a lot of the toughest buggers around.
Performance, versatility and reliability are everything to us. Our gear and our operators run hard hour on hour, day after day.
We tackle routine tree maintenance swiftly, carry out heavy de-limbing with ease and do saw reductions of whole trees just as naturally.
Our goal to provide leading value in tree shelter maintenance has seen us relentlessly invest in developing our gear. Our purpose-built machines have the cab positioned high for visibility above the debris, keeping clear sight of fences, gateways and high treetops.
Our 3 - 3.6 metre slasher and 1.8 metre saw have a powerful hydraulic drive system with a dedicated engine providing heaps of horsepower and control for quick and clean trimming. The slasher provides unsurpassed versatility when efficiency is the dominant focus; crisp, clean lines with the minimum of ‘pop-ups’, and debris cleared from the top and sides to avoid ugly dead hang ups as much as possible. It is awesome on regular maintenance work but can trim heavy limbs up to 110mm thick equally well when necessary.
Our onboard saw trims - while keeping the mess to an absolute minimum - at a speed you won’t believe!
We’ve built (optional) big rims to run tractor grip flotation wheels increasing stability and traction through the toughest conditions whilst spreading our footprint to minimise ground pressure, reducing our impact on your property.
The trimming booms are extremely robust meaning we don’t flop through the lumps and bumps but maintain consistent and strong cutting capability. The booms are extremely versatile in their positioning ability, which enables us to reach 99% of requirements, from tucking in hard against the machine body to trim at only 2.5 metres wide, or to reach out 8 metres across timber stacks or sheds etc.
