  • Capable of bulldozing, scraping, loading, metering, and clamping material — it's ideal for a wide variety of applications.
  • Low profile geometry allows superior visibility to the cutting edge, increasing efficiency
  • Rugged torque tube equalizes load forces when clamping
  • Heavy-duty design includes tough high-carbon cutting edges, wear resistant 1055 high-carbon steel at key wear points, precision cylinders with easy-to-service hardened rods. All pivot points are lubricated with grease fittings
  • To further increase durability and performance, buckets are predrilled for optional bolt-on replaceable cutting edges and toothbars.
