CASE Construction Equipment has introduced the all-new CASE precision grader blade, a new attachment for large-frame compact track loaders that delivers the grading performance of a motor grader in a more compact and agile footprint.
The blade is compatible with 2D and 3D machine control solutions — including CASE SiteControl grader solutions powered by Leica Geosystems — to deliver improved productivity, quality and efficiency in fine grading applications.
The CASE precision grader blade is compatible with the use of laser receivers (single or dual), sonic tracers (single or dual), GNSS/GPS (single or dual) and total stations — and the attachment itself is "plug and play" with the auxiliary hydraulics and 14-pin electrical connection of a large-frame CTL.
It also features a 108-inch moldboard capable of jointly changing elevation and slope through dual lift cylinders, as well as achieving 60 degrees of combined blade rotation and 26 inches of combined blade side shift. Motion and action for the grader blade are controlled through the existing joysticks of the CTL — no additional controls are required.
The attachment is built for minimal maintenance with powder coated metal surfaces, composite greaseless bushings at the pivot points, and heavy-duty axles with sealed hubs. It comes standard with a bolt-on reversible cutting edge. Optional equipment includes bolt-on side plates for material containment similar to a grading box, and twin mirrors that provide greater visibility down to the moldboard.
