AACPS Track-Saws

"The world's first mechanical coppicing and thinning machines!"

AACPS offers a safe, efficient and productive mechanical alternative to timber cutting in the form of coppicing, thinning and pruning of softwood, hardwood and woody weed populations.

This is all possible from the cab of our fleet of mini excavators using a unique, AACPS designed, attachment. This attachment is the subject of an International patent application.

As an alternative to the current manual process (chainsaw), it offers a safer working environment, opportunities in research and development, local employment opportunities, industry surety (OH&S) and a more reliable service to your company who will be assured of optimum results.

Our "Track-Saw" Fleet

Our current "Track-Saw" fleet is comprised of 3 tonne, air conditioned, Caterpillar mini excavators paired with our unique, AACPS designed, chainsaw attachment. This, along with other standard excavator attachments enables us to provide a safer, more productive and more efficient alternative to manual handling and operation of chainsaws.

All machines have TOPS and FOPS structures and run on rubber tracks.

The AACPS Attachment

The cutting head is attached to the excavator and has the ability to rotate 160 degrees horizontally, left to right. The bucket lifting ram has been left in place to be able to tilt the head up or down using the excavator controls allowing a variety of cutting positions. With hydraulic modifications, the attachment functions are all controlled from the cab.


When attached to our mini excavators, the machine has the capability reach of cutting up to 5.1 metres high, or similar in outreach.

Machine dimensions makes manoeuvrability performance very high as it is only 1.65m wide with zero tail swing, allowing greater access to tight areas. The "Track-Saw" performs on steep hillside slopes while carrying out it's various tasks.
