Dorshak Tree Specialists Adds Remote-Control Limb and Trunk Remover
Altec removal system reaches 90+ feet to grab and cut in one motion, improving quality and speed of tree pruning and removal services
By: Dorshak Tree Specialists
The Altec Remote Controlled Tree Removal system grabs and cuts limbs and trunk sections in one motion, lessening disturbance to surrounding areas and greatly minimizing potential damage to yards and structures. With a 92-feet vertical reach, the unit allows fast, safe removal of high tree limbs and elevated trunk sections.
A horizontal reach of 79 feet allows the Altec RCTR to access most trees from driveways or streets, avoiding heavy machinery damage to lawns, planting beds and woodlands. The long horizontal reach of the Altec RCTR is especially valuable in spring, when lawns are soft and especially susceptible to damage.
"The Altec RCTR represents a quantum leap that is revolutionizing the tree services industry," said Myron Dorshak, owner of Dorshak Tree Specialists (https://www.dorshaktree.com/
Directed by an operator on the ground with a remote control, the Altec RCTR lowers freshly-cut limbs and trunk sections to be chipped or hauled away, reducing brush and sawdust littering the surrounding area. The machine can handle up to 10,000 pounds, allowing large trunk sections to be lifted and carefully removed, rather than dropped to the ground and gouging soil.
"The unit is especially helpful for trees close to, or growing over, houses, garages or sheds," Dorshak added. "Its ability to grab, control and transfer freshly-cut pieces tremendously reduces risk of their accidentally falling onto a structure."
Projects can be priced more affordably, too, as the efficiency and safety of the Altec RCTR requires fewer workers to remove or trim trees. For trees located deeper in backyards, Dorshak Tree Service has spider lifts that can fit through a 36-inch gate, and lift an arborist 83 feet to trim or remove limbs.
