We designed our skidsteer tree spade nursery diggers for prepared ground nursery digging and they fit a myriad of skidsteer loaders. They are lightweight with AR400 cold formed, straight blades, and can move trees from 1” to 5” in diameter. All of our nursery diggers come with an electric valve bank and handheld wireless remote control system. They are designed for ease of maintenance with easily changeable parts.

We offer several customization options for our skidsteer tree spades. We can change the size, number, shape, or position of blades, add hydraulic stabilizers, and attach adjustable leveling pads. Contact us for more information about custom units.
