K-Tec’s new Tricerabox 3-point hitch box blade
Blade designed to be pulled by 500+HP tractor for an ideal cut zone maintainer
K-Tec Earthmovers have released a new accessory for 500+HP tractors to enhance earthmoving operations. The K-Tec Tricerabox is a 14' wide box blade that is mounted to the 3-point hitch on the rear of a tractor. The three functions of the Tricerabox include the leveling blade pulling material forward, ripper teeth sinking down into the soil, and blade backwards for pushing dozing material. The blade is ideal for leveling out uneven cut zones, to prepare a productive loading area for enhanced scraper productivity. It has seven ground ripper shanks that are hydraulically operated to lower and engage the ground for ripping up hard soil or aerating wet jobsites.
The Tricerabox back blade allows the operator to complete backfilling of soil work to fully smooth out the cut and fill zones. The 3-Point Hitch may also be modified to have a scraper hitch hook-up, making it the ultimate piece of support equipment, where the tractor can fill in as a bulk dirt hauler for another power-unit that may be down for maintenance.
The K-Tec Tricerabox enables the tractor to become a more versatile and nimble piece of ground maintenance equipment than a crawler dozer. Comparing the tractor/Tricerabox combination to a dozer, the contractor is able to burn less fuel, reduce undercarriage costs by a minimum of 50%, and have higher speed mobility to reverse back to the start of the cut zone. Using the Tricerabox is an excellent way to utilize the second life of a tractor, in becoming an integral piece of earthmoving support equipment.
