Land Clearing Attachments for Skid Steers, Tractors, and Excavators

Dougherty Forestry Manufacturing was founded in 2003 with the vision of producing high quality attachments at outstanding values. Since that time, DFM has grown into the leader in mechanized land clearing; pioneering innovation and revolutionizing an industry by vastly increasing the speed, safety, and efficiency in the way that land is cleared. A core value at DFM is, and always will be, customer service. We feel our obligation does not end when a unit is sold. That’s why every DFM attachment is proudly made in the USA using the highest quality components, and every attachment we produce comes with a guarantee of performance, safety, and ease of use.

Our Turbo Saw™ brand Tree removal attachments fit a wide range of machinery including: skid steers, track loaders, tractors, and mini excavators. No matter the job, no matter the machine, Turbo Saw™ has the power and durability to clear faster and better than anything else on the market. Whether you’re using a to cut mesquite, or a skid steer to cut eastern red cedar; we have you covered.

All of our tree cutting attachments feature our exclusive TS3 cutting system. The TS3 System uses mining grade carbide allowing landowners to clear trees and brush at ground level even in rocky soil. With a tooth life of 500 hours, the TS3 system helps users to virtually eliminate tree removal cost, as well as limiting time spent on required maintenance.

Cutting Capability


TS3 Cutting Tooth

The TS3 Cutting tooth has been developed out of mining grade carbide allowing for ground contact. The tooth can be rotated three times and has up to 500 hours of tooth life. The operating cost is well below competing attachments at under $0.69 per hour. The teeth can be rotated or replaced easily in the field using hand tools.

New TS3 Cutting System Features

  • Larger Bolt Shank
  • German Engineered Countersunk Lock Washer (No Loctite Needed)
  • Bigger 1/4 Hex Head Bolt
High Speed Cutting Disc

High Speed Cutting Disc

The cutting disc on the Turbo Saw™ turns at 1,800 rpm allowing the Turbo Saw™ to cut brush as well as trees. The teeth have an aggressive cutting angle and a limited bite, which increase efficiency, multiply available power, and minimize chip size for safety. This speed allows the Turbo Saw™ to cut brush as well as trees. A hardened, machined skid plate is placed beneath the cutting disc to protect the fasteners during ground contact.

Drive Train

There is no maintenance or adjustment on the drive train for up to 3000 hours. The hydraulic motor has a spline output that mates directly with a heavy duty bearing block. The frame of the Turbo Saw™ has an anti-wrap feature to prevent twine or vines from wrapping around the drive shaft.


Accumulator Arm

The independently controlled, accumulator arm on the CFB16 allows the operator to cut and carry multiple trees at one time.

Best Performance, Strongest Durability, & the Most Features

Safety is a primary concern of Dougherty Forestry Mfg. Each Turbo Saw™ has more standard safety features than the competition. The operator's manual is contained within a waterproof canister on the skid steer for easy access.

Blade Shield

Blade Shield

A shield behind the blade prevents sawdust from being directed towards the operator

Limb Deflector

Limb Deflector

Heavy expanded metal places a barrier between the operator and the material being cut. This keeps limbs from entering the cab on bushy trees. The V shield above the expanded metal deflects falling limbs to the side of the machine.

Pushing Guard

Pushing Guard

The pushing guard above the cutting disc gives the operator valuable leverage against the trunks of standing trees so they will fall forward away from the operator. The operator puts leverage on the tree while the tree is still connected to stump leaving a hinge to control the fall of the tree.
