    Default My recently finished tree scoop bucket

    Here's my finished tree scoop bucket. Basically a pointed shovel for my kubota 3830.

    Works very well. Digs holes for tree transplanting and removal.... FAST! Especially handy for removing invasive honey suckle from my woods. Rips them right out.

    Is that a piece of pipe you made that from?

    No it's 5/16" plate that's been run through a rolling mill.

    I like it. Very nice

    Somehing like that might come in handy for transplanting hickory trees.

    I have a fairly big side yard, and over the last few years I have transplanted several trees of all kinds. Oak, maple, cherry, walnut, etc.

    I have yet to be able to dig a hickory out. Even ones as short and small around as a pencil. I can dig down as deep as my spade will allow and they still have a ~1/4" diameter tap root shooting straight down

    Thank you sir,for the idea. A piece of pipe might be just what I need to make a muck scoop, but I could not for the life of me think of an easy simple way to do it.

    Nice job with your scoop!

    Did you have the steel rolled just for this project? I am also curious what it cost you. I'm sure there are other members who want to build a similar unit.

    Thank you! The custom rolling cost around $200 including the steel.

    A scoop could also be formed in a brake but I wouldn't be happy with all the bends. The rolled scoop has very little friction when digging... just like a pointed shovel.

    The flat point on the scoop is needed for engaging and cutting roots.

    What would you say the diameter of the scoop is? Pipe sounds really good and if you can find it used could reduce the cost alot.
