 Tree spade for JD 4300

There are less expensive mechanical versions available also, check out the 'Dutchman' line (search 'Dutchman's Tree Spades' on any search engine) they are very well made, reasonably priced units produced in Canada by one of the largest, oldest tree farms here. A word of caution though, a compact will not handle as large a tree as you may think. Carrying dead weight is one thing, tearing it out of the ground (break-out strength) is a whole other matter. We use 3pth tree spades on 40hp class machines (4wd with loaders) regularly in the course of business, anything more than about a 24" root ball is a tough task, this is basically a 3-4" diameter tree. Larger than that is entirely possible, but only with a trailer-mounted unit towed & powered by the tractor. Best of luck & try not to hurt yourself when you fall over after seeing the price of a tree spade.

Try www.treetoad.com. Looks like a good solution, and prices are much more reasonable. Anybody tried one?

Realize how old this is but the ole pro is still here:

Could you mount a bucket backwards on a backhoe or excavator to dig up a tree? Any idea how the up force would be compare to the down force the way the machine is designed to dig. I was driving in circles this morning this thought came to me. Well was not round circles as the road had curves. Smile

In using my bucket to push a tree while digging to be removed as debris, it seems to have a very strong push force to it. It would seem you could make a rounded bottom bucket with mounting setup modified possibly and just use it to run under a tree or shrub.

Kenny I'm pretty sure you can turn your bucket around and try it if it's the pin-on type versus a quick attach AND the dipper stick AND the cylinder push linkage fit up. It seems like I saw a picture of a mini-ex in the UK digging under a sidewalk that way.

When all I had was my backhoe, I dug up 20 trees for a guy and transplanted them with only the hoe. The trick is getting behind the tree which was failrly easy: I used one downrigger to tilt the machine to one side so the hoe was angled around the tree.

There are commercial buckets for skid steers call stumping or rooting buckets that perfrom the task you were thinking.

In fact my buddy with a large tree farm made one for his skid steer from a 36" diameter x 3/8" thick wall pipe that was sliced like the tip of a quill ink pen and welded to the mounting bracket.

Also, I saw a version of the above but it was for a compact skid steer and had a vibrating mechanism that helped with penetration.

And one more thing, there are manufacturers out there that make a skid steer quick attach plate for mini-ex's and up that allow you to even use pallet forks for example or pretty much anything a skid steer would use.
