Fecon has acquired TREEfrogg, a manufacturer of tree trimming saw attachments for skid steers and compact track loaders.
The acquisition expands the right-of-way clearing solutions offered by Fecon in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry.
Designed to fit small to midsize carriers, TREEfrogg’s patented tree trimming saws allow landscapers, landowners and DOT’s to perform tree maintenance with machines they already have quickly, safely and economically. Fecon will rebrand the saw attachments as Trim Ex.
“We are excited to add the TREEfrogg trimming saws to the Fecon line,” said Jeff Stanley, Fecon’s Senior Vice President of product development. “This addition expands the offering to our agricultural, rural and DOT customers, giving them a productivity enhancing solution for selective tree trimming.”
The attachments tackle overhanging tree limbs and other vegetation along easements, right-of-ways, roads, fence rows and paths.
As part of Fecon, Trim Ex will offer three attachments, the Trim Ex 26S saw and the smaller 18C.
The Trim Ex 26S attachment features a 60-cm carbide-tipped forestry blade that spins at 3,000 rpm and operates with standard flow machines.

By eliminating the need for chainsaws and bucket trucks, the Trim Ex 26S attachment can reduce the required labour of tree trimming.
The Trim Ex 18C require 38 litres per minute of auxiliary flow and can fit on skid steers with a 589-kg rated operated capacity.
Fecon also partnered with the founder of TREEfrogg to develop and design a dielectric saw attachment, the Trim Ex 26D, which offers added safety when trimming trees around power lines. It is also lighter in weight than the 26S model.
For more than 30 years, Fecon has produced more than 25,000 mulcher heads with a
presence on every continent. The acquisition of the TREEfrogg saw attachments complements Fecon’s current line of mulching attachments and extends Fecon’s reputation in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry.
