New Bobcat ‘HD Box Blade’ for grading applicationsPublished 3/10, 2022 at 12:47
Bobcat has expanded the company’s line up of attachments with the launch of a new heavy duty box blade. The new attachment offers a ‘plug & play’ integrated solution that can be installed on Bobcat loaders within a minute.
Suitable for use with most of the models in the Bobcat skid steer and compact track loader ranges, the new HD Box Blade attachment aims to save time and money while producing a more accurate and higher precision finish grade. The attachment covers all applications and can be used for rough or enhanced grading with Bobcat’s compatible laser guided control systems for precision grading. These systems help the operator maintain the same plane on the graded surface, leading to very high accuracy. As a result, the new blade can be used to level ground easily in roadwork and construction, including creating bases for car parks or pavements. Engineered for maximum precision, no rework is needed while grading.
When set up for 3D applications, the new solution is capable of grading complex designs on landscaping projects with either GPS or UTS guidance. This increases business opportunities and market share for contractors by increasing the range of projects they can bid and work on. Working in sync with a 3D grading system, the HD Box Blade can work on golf courses, sports fields and other medium to large landscaping projects.
With the HD Box Blade attachment, contractors can expand grading and levelling work as the system is ideal for sub grading and other surface preparation jobs with the adjustable articulation of the grade enabling the operator to remain at peak efficiency. Even working on slopes has been made simple as filling in low spots is easier thanks to the wheels being mounted behind. The attachment is made to be highly durable as the dual sided and replaceable cutting edge provides a long product life with its hardened steel, as well as its removable option. Optimised for Bobcat machines, the attachment gives more control while providing less ground disturbance and giving the robustness that customers have come to expect.
