 Tree spade for 460 loader

Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that offers a tree spade that will mount on a John Deere 460 Loader with the quick change option? I am referring to the feature that allows to change between different buckets, bale spears, etc.

 Tree spade for 460 loader

I don't know but I would like to find one for a nh-7308 loader. I did find a few that work off 3ph. and auxillary hydraulics costing $5000- $6500 and these hammer type 24" or 32" tree spades called tree toads using 3ph as lift only costing $2200-$2500. I would like to move trees with my compact without spending 5 grand plus

It doesn't look like there is all that much to the tree spades I have been looking at. Makes you wounder why they cost so much. What tractor is your loader on? Have you found any used tree spades?

 Tree spade for 460 loader

I do not own the tractor or loader yet. I am in the process of trying to figure out what to buy. I've been planting and growing trees for several years now as a hobby and have decided to make a businees out of it. How do you like your New Holland? I started looking at those first and liked them a lot but our local dealer had some gambling problems that spilled into his business and New Holland pulled all of the equipment out.

Me either, no I bought last week from OK tractors, corriher impliment co. in Newton NC. In fact it left their dock just this morning on its way to my home in Monroe MI.
I bought A TC-30, nh-7308fel, loaded R-4 tires (9x3)trans
$14050.00,delivered to my home for $600.00 should be at my house no later than Monday, can't wait. No dealer in SE michigan or NW ohio could get under $16000, go figure? and I gave them lots of chances, I have wanted a compact since 1998 when we bought land and built a home, in fact I had a deal done on a 1720 with the same loader before the house was done but my wife and dad were freaking out about me spending that kind of money " on a lawn mower" so I played the garden tractor game. I should have bought then and did some of the fill, grade and plant work myself instead of hiring it out. then I might be able to afford a $5000 tree spade.
I now have friends with kabuta's, deere's and new holland's full size and compacts and they are all good machines It is just how much power ,how many bells and whistles you want, and keep working the best deal. this one will not finish mow It will rough mow 4ac. till, light loader work, post holes, and hopefully move trees. we have 7.5ac and two horses, I want to build another pole barn,this one myself for myself. and a small greenhouse.
In spring of 1999 we bought and planted 350 trees planted them all together to make it easier to take care of them, as advised. I have moved and/or killed about 50 of them by hand. So this tractor will solve my tree problem one way or another, remember that rough mower and tiller I talked about. Anyway good luck with your tractor puchase.

There are a couple of companies that make JD QT - to - standard skidsteer (Bobcat style) QT adapters. I believe they run about $500. The adapter goes on and off of the JD loader frame as fast as any JD attachment. But once you have that you adapter - you're open to the world of skid steer implements - lot's of toys to consider. If you're a home fabricator/inventor type - you can even buy the attachment-side mounting plates (about $75) and weld that up to about anything you can dream up.

You will not find a tree spade for a compact. None of them have the weight, horsepower, or Hydraulics to run one. Skid steers have higher horsepower and gear pump ratios than compacts. At the very best you may be able to run a 20" spade with a compact tractor(35 + HP) . That is to small to be worth the time or investment. Trust me, I have thought long and hard on this subject, I belive I have hand dug 2-3 thousand pine trees.
