Dozer Blade Works Like Dump Bucket
Randal Cox, president of Cox, Inc., Van Wert, Iowa, manufacturer of the "Multi Dozer Blade," says the exclusive dumping feature enables you to push dirt three times faster since you can lift the load instead of just pushing it out of the way. It's also easier to build terraces, clean waterways or pack silage with the dumping blade.
The 14 ft. blade holds about 2 1/2 yards of material and lifts about 7 ft. into the air for dumping. It adjusts side to side, tilts down for digging and tilts back to the horizontal position. The blade mounts quickly on a subframe that remains on the tractor when the dozer is removed. The dozer attaches to the tractor at the subframe, and also to the drawbar, so you're pushing the dozer from the front of the tractor drawbar.
The dozer fits on most 200-260 hp. 4-WD tractors. You'll need to use six of the tractor hydraulic outlets to power the blade functions.
Blades are available in 10, 12, and 14 ft. widths. All three widths are 39 in. high and 3/8 in. thick. The 12 ft. blade sells for $9,730.
