15 Series

Bradco's 24", 32" & 44", 15 Series Tree Spades provide a unique, optimized root ball to retain more of the root system. The exclusive dished undercutter cuts all roots & supports the ball in looser soil.

Bradco's 15o truncated models feature flat bottom, high tensile, abrasion resistant overlapping blades, & provide a sharp clean cut at a direct angle, without tearing or stretching the root system. These easy changing blades better approximate a true round shape and multiple cylinders exert a more precise force around the ball.

Features include the same great "CLEGG" design with updated manufactured structures and hydraulics.

25 Series

Bradco's 26", 36", & 44", 25 Series Tree Spades provide a compromised digging angle between truncated and cone style to adapt to various soil conditions. The 25o angle and deep stroke of the blades produces several uniform ball sizes with one set of blades.

Bradco's 25o modified truncated model features pointed high tinsile, abrasion resistant blades for easier ground penetration. Blade towers incorporate high density plastic slides that are self lubricating. Industry standard wire baskets for balled and burlap tree harvesting.

Other features include: an electric over hydraulic control with hand held joystick for operating the tree spade and rear stabilizers. Optional cord extension for the joystick control. Rear stabilizers for most skid-steer models. The inside frame is more compact allowing the skid-steer to handle a bigger spade size and work in tight spaces.

  • Three models that dig modified truncated dirt balls from 18" to 44" diameter (1" to 4.5" tree caliper range)
  • 25o Angle and the deep stroke of the blades produce several uniform ball sizes with 1 set of blades
  • Short towers reduce machine width to dig trees in tight conditions
  • Uses standard industry wire baskets
