Below are various questions Virnig Manufacturing receives on a regular basis. Browse through the following questions and click on a question to see the answer. If you do not see your question listed below please contact a local Virnig dealer or call 800.648.2408.
The maximum tree size which can be removed will vary greatly depending on the size of the skid steer, type of tree and ground conditions. Generally, it can pull up to 12” diameter trees. Consult with your local Virnig dealer or contact Virnig at 800-648-2408 if unsure if the Digging Tree Puller is right for your application.
Having one fixed jaw makes it easier to align trees and objects when approaching them. The fixed jaw provides increased control, allowing you to get inside of a tree that’s next a fence post or a neighboring tree. It serves as a reliable guide for pulling tasks, making it easier to center the jaw on objects during the approach. Fixed jaw drives into the ground easier and is simpler with less moving part. In contrast, using two moving jaws can be more challenging to align objects while approaching them. Also, there’s extra parts and maintenance with two moving jaws.
The Digging Tree Puller offers numerous benefits in comparison to a stump bucket. It allows you to extract entire trees by gently rocking them to loosen the root system from the soil. Additionally, the Digging Tree Puller enables you to pinch and cut roots. Overall, the Digging Tree Puller causes less ground disturbance, resulting in reduced cleanup efforts.
Place the jaws as close to the ground as possible with the right, fixed jaw up against the post. Slowly close the left jaw onto the fence post and lift straight up. If the post does not loosen then gently move the skid steer loader back and forth to loosen the post and try lifting straight up again.
The jaw teeth are made from ½” AR400 and 1/2” Grade 50 steel plate. Additionally, every tooth is gusseted with ½” grade 50 steel to provide rigidity. These attributes allow the Virnig Digging Tree Puller jaw to outperform inferior steel designs, even if they‘re thicker.
The 90-degree couplers on the Digging Tree Puller are not designed to connect under pressure. If hydraulic pressure is not relieved before removing the lines, the couplers can be difficult to connect/disconnect. Users can also relieve pressure by loosening the coupler on the line. Note: this will likely be messy as the lines are full of hydraulic fluid.
It is possible the couplers are damaged and in this case, replacement is necessary. To test, attempt to connect the couplers to each other while no pressure is in the line. If they cannot, the couplers are likely bad. If they can, the couplers may not be the issue and you should contact your local Virnig dealer or Virnig at 800-648-2408 for troubleshooting.

Virnig uses NitroSteel® cylinder rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.
Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.
A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice. Learn more about the benefits of the NitroSteel® process.
