Can you move 1400lb root ball with a tree dolly(tree cart)

I am balling a bunch of trees and would like to go as big as possible on the balls, as long as I can still move them with a tree dolly. Do you think a bobcat 44" tree spade, will make the balls to big to move with a tree dolly (tree cart), over a normal lawn with a couple of guys.

Thanks in advance for you help.

with a deep taper you might be ok you will have to test it by doing one, 1400 is hefty even for 2 guys. you can always trim the balls down if nessassary

If the ground is smooth and hard youll be fine. It used to be a pain when we had to move one down the row because the skid wouldnt fit. Either it would be move the whole row with the skid or go push it. You should be fine But its more like pulling then pushing
