Type - Straight for use with Bord na Móna tractor

The bulldozer attachment fitted to this tractor is produced by a firm of specialists in tractor attachments.

The blade is adjustable to a maximum angle of 26 0 in the horizontal plane and can be tilted in the vertical plane to produce a camber of 9" over the length of the blade. The blade is made in fabricated steel strongly ribbed with replaceable cutting edge and corner shoes. The arms take the form of a 'U' frame, accommodated between the two tracks, supporting blade at the closed end on a central pivot and two pinned side struts, (adjustable for angle) while the open ends are secured to a cross trunnion between the two track frames.

The blade is controlled by hydraulic rams located between the attachment arms and brackets secured to track frames.
