We all know digging up a tree by hand is hard, back-breaking work. As a nursery owner it is also cost prohibitive. Not only is the labor cost expensive, but the possibility of damaging the tree in the process increases dramatically when digging by hand with every push of the shovel. As trees mature they become harder to move, so a tree spade is the best way to ensure safety of the tree as well as your workman. A tree spade is designed to dig down and lift the root ball up in one movement. It has telescoping cylinder blades that easily trench around the root ball and remove it. These types of tree spades can be expensive and unfortunately they only have one use.
As a nurseryman, purchasing nursery equipment can be the most difficult mental decision you make in your business. You constantly have to justify the cost with the need of what that particular piece of equipment can do as well as its return on your investment. If tree moving is your only business model, then a tree spade is a logical purchase. However, if you have several aspects to your business it makes better sense to purchase equipment that has multiple uses.
The ProLine™ SHOVEL might just be the answer. The versatility this shovel gives you can outperform a tree spade in several ways:
● Is more compact and can maneuver in tight spaces
● Has multiple uses, including moving rock or stone
● More precision than traditional bucket tree spade designs
● Is significantly less expensive than hydraulic tree spades
A traditional tree spade is an excellent tool and has proven success. But as business operations have become leaner in these recent economic times it is necessary to stretch your budgets as far as you can. Purchasing equipment is a vital part of keeping your business available to a wider range of customers. ProLine™ understands this and continuously tries new ways of designing equipment that can handle multiple jobs and that are compact enough to get things done efficiently and fast. They have spent years in the tree nursery business and use this experience and knowledge in the way they manufacture all their tree moving equipment.
Work smarter, not harder by not only purchasing the right equipment, but also the right amount of equipment!
