A Tree Spade Is A Piece of Tree Transplanting Equipment You Can’t Do Without
The versatility of the ProLine™SHOVEL™ is ideal for on-site tree transplanting projects, moving mulch or stone, digging out cull trees or stumps, or even scraping shallow trenches or precisely placing wet concrete. This equipment, commonly called a skid steer shovel, is often the ideal alternative to standard hydraulic tree spades when high volume digging is not required. The ProLine™ SHOVEL™’s design is more compact than standard tree spades. By eliminating the bulk of most tree spades, this equipment is ideal for single uses by property owners, or for portability and repeated usage at tree farms and commercial nurseries for field management, and for commercial landscapers, municipal or county maintenance departments for on-site transplanting.
What Makes a More Compact Tree Spade a Great Tool for Transplanting Trees?
The ProLine™ SHOVEL™ with its compact design can still handle the same size trees as other equipment in this product class; rootballs up to 40” in diameter. The compact design is easier for individuals to maneuver, and is considerably less expensive than hydraulic tree spades. With three or four thrusts around the tree base, a landscaper can extract a uniformly shaped tree rootball.
