Tree Puller Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT SIZE TREES CAN IT PULL OUT?

The jaws open 11 ½”, but the maximum size of tree that can be removed will vary greatly depending on the size of the skid steer, type of tree, and ground conditions. Consult with your local Virnig dealer or contact Virnig at 800-648-2408 if unsure if the Tree Puller is right for your application.

HOW CAN I PULL OUT A METAL FENCE POST WITHOUT BENDING IT?

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.

WHAT IS THE THICKNESS OF THE TEETH ON THE JAW? WHY ISN’T IT THICKER?

1/2” Grade 80 laser cut steel. Others often use use A36 steel. Grade 80 steel has a yield strength 2.2 times that of A36 steel. Additionally, every other tooth is gusseted to provide rigidity. These attributes allow the Virnig Tree Puller jaw to outperform inferior steel designs, even if they are thicker.

CAN I PULL OUT SMALL TREES WITHOUT SHEARING THEM OFF?

Yes, there is a hard stop at the tip of the jaw leaving a small space between the teeth.

WHY WON’T MY COUPLERS CONNECT/DISCONNECT EASILY?

The couplers on the 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.

I BENT THE TREE PULLER JAW, CAN I GET A NEW ONE?

Yes, new weldment parts can be fabricated for all current model attachments. Expect a lead time for all fabricated parts.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?

Virnig uses NitroSteel® 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.

WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG SKID STEER ATTACHMENT?

Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.

To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
