you can get heavy duty sack barrows (simular) desined to carry root ball plants i thing they will handel 300 kg but if you are going accross a lawn that is a bit wet you might need some boards down to run on
man brand names you can think of?, that would be ideal as I have rubber sheets to go over grass etc, it's mostly crushed slate paths anyway, and you could probably ride a tank over that stuff!
We planted some 5m tall Western Red Cedar for a customer.We had a jcb to take plants off lorry and carry to property as articulated lorry could not get close enough. Engine hoist/winch to raise ball off the ground high enough to get a powered caterpillar tracked barrow under it. We had to build ramps and place boards over lawns etc.Planting holes were pre dug up on a raised area, trees were deposited on smooth boards and dragged to holes. It took 6 men to drag each tree over the boards. It was tough work. I have a video of the whole operation if you would like to see
The lorry has an arm on it that can reach 30 m into the garden from the street, up to half a ton I think(quite impressive)From there it’s all crushed slate paths so it’s doable with my sack truck of 200kg , but it ain’t ideal and I work alone. The garden has been completed since 2021 so if I can avoid machines/loaders etc then I will.
Send on the video anyway , as I’m sure I can learn something from it!
Thanks a lot
Thats the orignal delivery, no oscar nominations I think but you get the idea
Looks like a job for a telehandler.
Found one, thanks to all!!
