Turn your skid loader into a high-speed, labor-saving transplanting unit. A tree can be dug or transplanted without the operator having to leave the loader. Spade is designed with a very short frame reducing the need for stabilizers and counterweights. The blades of the tree spade overlap to ensure clean root cutting and support of the root ball.
