Bobcat Company’s tree spade attachments are available in five sizes and in truncated, modified and cone blade configurations.The new Bobcat tree spades are available in sizes of 24, 28, 32, 36 and 44 inches. Bobcat consulted with key tree industry suppliers to ensure that these sizes would fit standard industry baskets. All sizes are available in all blade configurations, except the 44-inch tree spade, which is available in the modified and cone configurations. The truncated blade configuration has a 22 degree tower angle that provides a better stand of the tree when placed in a basket. On loamy to sandy soils, the modified blade configuration works best. Bobcat modified blades have a tower angle of 25 degrees which allows the tree to be placed in baskets. The cone blade configuration is most often used to pick trees up and then transport and place them.
