For Sale: 48” Dutchman Tree Spade and Volvo Wheel Loader with Floater Tires

Equipment Description: Volvo L50 Wheel Loader with only 7,300 hours and going up a little as still being used. Complete out of the frame engine overhaul less than 200 hours ago (a few months ago). The loader runs great and is a very tight machine. I had it repainted even though it wasn’t really necessary. No rust anywhere. The loader has hydraulic quick attach from the cab. The floater tires are 54×37.00-25 which is what makes this setup so special. The floaters allow the loader to float over soft ground without making any tracks whatsoever- even with a tree in the spade or a bucket full of dirt. Setting up the loader today in this way with new tires, rims, and mount the centers would be over $35,000. The width of the machine with the floaters is just under 10 ft. I also have the stock tires that sell with it as well and make it a much more narrow load. The spade is a 480i (48 inch) Dutchman spade that has never been used commercially and is in excellent shape. I am the second owner after buying it from a farmer in Iowa. The loader can handle a much bigger spade than this spade, but was the right size for what I needed to do. I am not a commercial tree mover- just have this setup to move trees for myself on site. I moved 100 trees in one day at our place with this setup last spring when the ground was very wet. The bucket is just under two yards. Also comes with heavy built loader to skid steer adapter that allows for any skid steer attachments to be used on the loader as well. I added a power beyond valve approx. three years ago for the auxiliary hydraulics to run the spade and the hookup is flat faced skid steer so can run any skid steer attachments. This is a special setup. Hate to let it go, but am done moving trees. Please call or text with any questions.
