Dutchman - Model 60 - Truck-Mounted Straight-Blade Tree Transplanting Spades
Dutchman’s straight-blade 60” truck mount is ideal for digging up to 6” trees. This unit can be mounted to a 33,000GVW, single-axle truck. Minimum cab-to-axle needs to be 120 inches. An optional “Wobble-Tail” can be manufactured for this unit as well making it an ideal, compact package for digging in tight areas. Built with the same quality and durability you have come to know from Dutchman.
Contrary to popular belief, Dutchman does manufacture Truck-Mounted straight-blade spades currently up to 60-inch. All Dutchman's truck-mount blades are made from AR 400 steel and set on a 25-degree angle for optimum dept-to-width ratio when digging. This is ideal for deep tap-rooted trees like Pecans, Oaks, and Pears.
- All Dutchman's spades have a high strength,low-profile frame which makes it easy to back under low branched trees.
- The blades on a Truck Mount are coned up so as to ensure no soil loss. The spades come with either manual valves or electronic controls. With the electronic feature, we could mount a secondary control inside the cab of the truck.
- In keeping with Dutchman's goal of providing optimum nursery equipment for the end user, we are planning to provide larger truck-mounts in the future. Our vision includes superior blade configuration for overall digging efficiency.
