Dutchman 3 Point Hitch Spade
Dutchman’s 3-point hitch spades are designed specifically for Category II or III tractor hook-ups. With the aid of a lift-mast assembly, the spade can be mounted on the rear of your tractor and operate off the auxiliary hydraulics. The spade can then be operated either through and electric control box or a manual valve with levers. All Dutchman lift-masts are designed the same but you can attach any angle spade to the rear. The size of the spade will depend on the size of the tractor. One key feature of Dutchman’s lift-mast assembly is that it is built with a universal skid steer connection. This will allow you to remove the spade in the future and connect it to a skid steer loader if desired. Call a representative today to find out what size spade will match your tractor.

Scraper Plate Option

Dutchman’s Scraper Plate option is designed to minimize the amount of soil sticking to the blades. The adjustable Scraper Plate design allows the user to set the height of the spade (when digging a smaller root ball) and ensure all the soil stays in the basket. This design is perfect for those clients with extremely sticky soil conditions.
When the plates are removed, the bottom of all Dutchman spades still have the permanent scraper plate mounted to the bottom of the towers ensuring minimal soil stick when digging a full root ball.
