I did my research online about 2 weeks prior to purchasing my Ditch Witch SK800 on attachments. Both brand and what types I needed. Blue Diamond is a brand name for a reason. Other contractors and machine fanatics know the Blue Diamond name. Honestly, they just look “beefier” online compared to other brands. So I bought 3 Blue Diamond attachments right out the gate. Cause what’s a machine with no attachment? Started with the 36” pallet forks, 44” smooth grapple bucket with blade, and 52” low profile smooth bucket with blade. The grapple bucket is a beast. Not a single problem. It takes a beating on a regular basis between landscaping and concrete demos. It also got used daily for 3 months straight doing tree cleanup after Hurricane Laura. The smooth bucket is solid 9/10. I give it a 9 because it is heavy. But you can’t have “heavy duty” if its not heavy. It is our most used attachment. Transporting materials 1/3 of a yard at a time is very efficient for a mini skid steer. The pallet forks are great, but they are somehow heavier than the smooth bucket. The mini skid cant really pick up a pallet to begin with so its almost worthless because of the machines capabilities. We mostly use the forks around the shop to move leftover pallets of materials from past projects and loading plate compactors, pressure washers, job site boxes, etc. into truck beds. And I’m looking at more attachments on bluediamondattachments.com again, so that should say something alone.
I have a 72 in Severe Duty Bush Cutter. I think it is the best on the market because it’s a cross between a mulcher and a cutter. And their customer services is outstanding. I would definitely buy other attachments from them.
We purchased a Ditch Witch SK1550 last spring. My rep told me I should upgrade my bucket and forks from our current Dingo ones. I told him I’d wait and just keep using what I had. After seeing another buddy using his Blue Diamond bucket and how well built it was I took the plunge. I now have a tooth bucket, high capacity bucket, forks, and looking to get a 4 in 1 or sweeper next. I love their products and have had zero issues with all of them. So heavy duty and well built. They have a customer for life from me. Thanks guys.
We love it. For what we do on the farm to move the trees and limbs, it is great. 🙂 Do a lot on the farm with it. Moving logs and brush and a lot of other. It is really good to have around. Would not trade at all.
I purchased a 72” Blue Diamond Extreme Duty Brush Cutter with my new Caterpillar 279D3 Skid steer/Track Loader. I cut 8-acres of 6-year old pine, oak & gum trees with the brush cutter. It is a beast on brush & trees up to 5”. It’s heavy duty made & a tough piece of equipment. I highly recommend Blue Diamond equipment to everyone. After seeing my brush cutter in action. My friend purchased the same Blue Diamond brush cutter with his new Skid steer / Track loader.
We have been very impressed with Blue Diamond Attachments; our customers have used them extensively and only had good things to say. I can send out Blue Diamond Attachments with full confidence they will meet customer needs. In particular the Severe Duty Brush Cutter is a customer favorite.
