No Hydraulics Tree Spade
Instead of using hydraulics to force the four steel spades under the tree, you simply drive the spades into the ground with a fence post pounder, driving the steel shaft atached to each spade.
Once the spades are under the tree, you lift the 3-pt. mounted unit and drive away. Two-wheeled units with a hand-cranked lift winch are also available.
Units range in size from 20 to 30 in. A 24-in. dia., 4-spade unit sells for $1,645.
