The tree spade is simple to operate with complete control from the loader seat. The unique hydraulics combination provides tree and shrub digging capabilities that are fast and dependable. A tree can be dug and transported, or loaded, without the operator leaving the loader. Our tree spade design is simple and cost effective. We eliminated unnecessary wearable pivot points and focused on one thing – transplanting trees and shrubs.

With over twenty years of engineering, design change and field testing, the Dirt Works Tree Spade has evolved into a cost effective solution for transplanting trees and shrubs. Our truncated style pointed design blades are 1/4' Grade 50 plate with reinforced centers and sharpened edges to aid in ground penetration. Other spades on the market use 3/8' blades which require extra weight to penetrate the ground, requiring a larger and heavier machine to operate. 3/8' blades have little flexibility, and the extra force needed for penetration can cause damage to frame structures. Also watch for manufacturers who claim to have hardened steel blades. Hardened blades are brittle, instead of bending, they crack, which requires a costly five-step repair process.

We reduced our costs by leaving over-engineered options off; thus creating a simple reliable design. The three spaded fixed frame design offers ample opening to reach around trees and shrubs without expensive, complicated and unnecessary swing out designs. The Dirt Works unit has truncated style pointed spade type blades with bend lines that are parallel to the cylinder.

Throughout the years other manufactures have attempted to copy our design. We have seen our competitors build larger three spaded units (32'- 36'). Larger units require larger blades and heavier machines to operate. We have also seen other manufacturers sell units with cone style blades. Cone style blades will not penetrate the ground. Beware of blades with bend lines starting at the tip and flaring out at the top, unparallel to the cylinder.
