I used to run a Nisula felling shear, purchased from AC Price engineering.  Turns your digger into a giant pair of loppers.  Pros of that were I could shear at all angles, all directions even towards myself, so I could reach over fences and shear hedges etc, removeable blade so it was a timber grab too and no electrics needed either, just 1 2 way function and 1 standard return,   cons I lost a lot of height because the shear, rotator and dampener were about 3’ in length. The rotator wasn’t fixed to I had limited height and cut and hold capabilities.  

  A fixed shear I’d go TMK, they seem to have the biggest diameter cut and very simple.  If I had a big budget I’d go Jake from Jas P Wilson, full fixed rotator and removeable blade and will cut 200mm, you’ve pretty much got a robot arm shearing machine.  Wilson’s are great to deal with.
