Optimal 880 Tree Spade
The Optimal 880 is the upgraded version of our old Model 850. It has been in production for over 10 years and is a tried and proven work horse in the 28-36" rootball range. Because of the compact size, load center, and weight of this machine, it can be run on a much smaller loader. Typically if you are operating one of our competitor's 28-32" spades, you can run the 880 on that same loader. This is a huge advantage if you need to step up to a 36" size. Some of the other advantages are no grease fittings and its easily adjustable blades (15 minutes or less). Optimal 880 Features: 4 blades for superior digging in hard soils Dual gates - digs to right or left Compact size for tight conditions Superior speed Optimal rootball - more roots/less soil = more trees per load Reliability/German engineering and superior customer service Click Here for the Optimal 880 Tree Spade Flyer
