Our Story

26 years in the Tree Industry, having 40 or more employees, taught me a lot about efficiency and productivity. Mini loaders combined with a Branch Manager™ grapple added more dollars to Top Notch Tree's bottom line and even more important was employee moral climbed when we had Mini loaders to do the grunt work.


After attending trade shows talking with many Arborists about their needs we have expanded the Branch Manager™ line to a full service attachment resource.


Branch Manager Attachments grew out of one Tree company owners need for a brush and log moving attachment to fit his new Mini Loader. Dave Nordgaard, former owner of Top Notch Tree the 1st accredited tree care firm in MN, says "I Bought my first Mini loader (ramrod 750) in 1998, the "bucket" style grapples I tried for mini loaders at the time had very small openings and broke under the rigors of professional Tree service work. After experimenting with a modified set of pallet forks and a simple hydraulic "Beak" I developed a light weight "Skid" type bypass grapple. Moving Brush, logs, and feeding the chipper never was easier and my tree crews loved it. Soon I was building them for friends and in 2002 My Son Dustin and I started Top Notch Equipment to Distribute the growing Branch Manager™ Line of mini loader attachments.
