Bulldozer Attachment (Straight)

 For use with Bord na Móna tractor

This attachment is used as a general purpose implement for levelling, filling and preparing rail beds, etc.,

This attachment is generally the same as the conventional bulldozer attachment for the various standard tractors except that it is of somewhat lighter construction for bog work. The blade is a curved steel plate reinforced with standard steel sections and gussets, and has end plates braced back to the face of the blade to increase capacity. The push arms, made from standard steel channel section are attached to brackets on the end of the blade by bolting, and to the track frame of the tractor by plain bearing pivot arrangement. The blade is controlled by two hydraulic rams acting in the horizontal plane, through a lever bracket and drop link. The hydraulic rams are anchored at the rear of the tractor frame
