Hydroaxe.  A device designed to maime any living creature within 100
yards.

Actually, it is a hydraulicly driven HUGH brush hog, designed to clear
right of ways and other sites were species identification and leave
trees are not part of the picture.  

For a simple view, think of a lawn mower that will cut 6"trees and
better.

Its a southern thing, all that brush, ya know.
