A GMT grapple saw makes it possible to cut and remove trees in small pieces. This is possible because our grapple saws are highly manoeuvrable and flexible. Practically every branch and part of the tree can be reached. And that is a unique feature of our grapple saws.
By working with the GMT method, crane operators can remove trees in small pieces and place them directly in a shredder or container. The great advantage is that this removes the need for a ground crew. This allows you to immediately save costs and speed up the execution of the job. This difference is made clear in the adjacent picture.
Tree removal with crane vehicles in combination with gripper saws, which requires a ground crew, has the following disadvantages:
❗ While the ground crew is cutting the tree into pieces, the base vehicle can’t be used (costs extra)
❗ Need a lot of space on the ground to put down cut tree parts
❗ Working with the chainsaw causes a lot of noise
❗ Extra crane + grapple needed to place tree parts in chipper (costs extra)
❗ Hiring a ground crew (manpower) costs a lot of extra money
❗ Clean-up of area necessary after completing a job
Tree service companies and contractors who work according to the GMT method and with a GMT grapple saw can:
✅ fell an entire tree and remove it in 30 minutes
✅ remove and shred an entire tree with just 2 people
✅ generally save 60% on working hours and personnel
✅ work longer because there is hardly any physical load
