Operating video showing this spade in operation. Please note this bobcat being used does not have tracks or stabilizers and the legs on the spade are set to dig very shallow for smaller shrubs. I have this smaller 20″ model. I have a 3-spade Model 520 Caretree tree spade for up to a 20″ root ball. Universal attachment, fits Bobcat, Case, New Holland, John Deere and other universal skid steers. It runs 100% off hydraulic controls with universal standard 2 hydraulic couplings. No electrical hookup! It’s in great condition. All functions work perfectly. Has the Truncated type blades which is the most popular. It also allows for the root ball to stand up and/or be burlaped and placed in baskets which you can see I also have as well. I also have Caretree Stabilizers I am selling separately for 0 and also lots of various baskets and burlap, but everything is negotiable! Blades in good shape with a little wear. Some hoses have a little wear, but since none are leaking, it hasn’t concerned me. Stored mostly inside most of it’s life.
I bought this to move about 80-100 trees and then just going to resell. I don’t have a lot of time so I am slow to move the trees and didn’t want to rent a unit. At this price you can do the same as me and then just resell to the next person. Don’t rent for 00 a week! Save your back! Once you start digging there is no need to get out of the bobcat. Don’t take chances on a home made unit made cheaply and sprayed with new paint or one of the rusty old “needs work” spades listed on Ebay. Hydraulic controls can be mounted in the cab of skidsteer. The nice thing about this unit is it can be used with most all brand skid steers. This was used with a Bobcat & Case Skidsteer. Can be operated without counterweights or stabilizers. The 20″ size is ideal for the smaller trees you want to move including saplings, bushes like Boxwoods and Arborvitaes. Located in my building. Feel free to come see the unit operate in person. I can load it right on your trailer or can put it on a pallet and have it strapped to be shipped via carrier of your choice. I am ready to sell this Spade so bring on the offers! Willing to deal for a package deal! I am ready for this to be gone to make space in my building. Would also consider trades of comparable value items.
