BY AsphaltPro Staff
John Deere, Moline, Illinois, introduces the new mechanical angle blade for the 950K and 1050K crawler dozers. “The new mechanical angle blades were designed based on feedback from contractors in the pipeline industry,” said Nathan Horstman, product marketing manager, crawler dozers, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Understanding the crippling impact downtime can have, we designed the John Deere mechanical blade to be stronger and more durable. From performance improvements to features that provide better serviceability, our customers can be confident when running a machine equipped with the new blade option.”
The three-position adjustable blade can be configured using the provided pin points on the push beams. Redesigned with an improved blade profile, the new mechanical angle blade provides better shedding of material and reduces the likelihood of blade plugging. The approach angle on the 950K and 1050K blades has been increased 29 percent versus the previous offering. Changes to the hydraulic hose routing to the blade offer better protection against damage, according to the manufacturer, and the blade weight was reduced to be reinvested in the C-frame.
