Is the machine heavy?
The weight of the HS-596 with a 96" blade is 38 lbs. "Heavy" is a personal opinion. Many owners say that it feels similar to a backpack sprayer. The Saje design distributes weight to the body's largest muscle groups, primarily the leg muscles. The arms carry no weight!
How many trees will it shear in a day?
Once you gain operating proficiency (1 to 3 hours) and your body is conditioned (4 to 5 operating days) you should average 2,000 to 2,800 trees per day.
What breaks down?
Although mechanical failures have been few, the most common malfunction (which represents a small percentage of operating Sajes) has been the $50 flexible drive shaft core. This is due to the operators running their Sajes at much faster RPM than necessary. A slower blade speed produces a cleaner cut.
Is there a warranty?
Yes, The Saje shear engine, reduction gear, other parts and workmanship are warranted for one year.
