Model 55D - Truck Mounted Tree Transplanters


The Model 55 is built with all the rugged characteristics of the larger spades and works great on a class 7 single axle truck. What this means to you is that you can move 5 to 6 inch caliper trees on a truck that is highly maneuverable and able to get into those tight places. Also, you can operate the smaller chassis without a CDL. Simple, rugged, dependable… You can’t go wrong with a BIG JOHN Tree Transplanter. Increase your efficiency with a BIG JOHN pod trailer. Save time and money and greatly reduce mileage by moving multiple trees per trip. Call us to learn more.
