Kubota Offers Hydraulic 6-in-1 Blade

Kubota dealers now offer a hydraulic blade that tilts into six different position to make leveling and backfilling, even on includes and uneven terrain, easier and more productive. The blade features a load-sensing hydraulic system, perfectly matched speed balance, power balance, and outstanding digging force. It is designed for the KX040-4 compact excavator. 

6-in-1 bladeThe blade’s capacity has increased almost 0.75 cubic yards over the standard blade. Just by moving the dozer lever, operators can angle the blade right or left to push soil aside while the machine moves forward, eliminating the need for repetitive right-angle positioning while backfilling trenches. The operator can command all six functions simultaneously for more convenient landscaping, shaping and backfilling control.

 Additionally, contractors can operate the rocker switch on top of the blade control to tilt the blade 10 degrees up or down, and now simultaneously twist the control handle to angle the blade 25 degrees left or right. This feature makes it ideal for contractors to dig ditches easily, flat or tilted. The angle blade also allows operators to work efficiently in confined spaces, alongside walls and near busy roads.

At 5 feet 10.9 inches wide, the blade stretches across the entire machine width, even when tilted. The tilt function gives contractors the flexibility to shape foundation edges for runoff, and then complete the job with slopes and swales for ample water drainage and a professional look.

To keep the soil out of the space between the blade and the tracks, the 6-in-1 Blade is wider and extends past the track width by 2 inches on each side. The 6-in-1 Blade angles a wide 25 degrees to help the soil easily slide off into the trench, improving backfilling time by as much as 35 percent.
