New precision blade amps up grading capabilities on Case track loaders
A new attachment from Case Construction Equipment gives the company’s compact track loaders the grading precision of a motor grader in a small, agile package.
The company introduced its new Precision Grader Blade, compatible with both 2D and 3D machine control solutions, this month.
“This is built for those applications where contractors have always wanted the power and precision of a motor grader, but were unable to justify it based on size, access or cost,” Jerry Hutkowski, product manager for Case, said in a release. “It takes the large-frame CTL that many contractors already own and turns it into a powerful precision grading solution capable of working on sites where a larger machine isn’t practical or can’t gain access.”
Designed as a plug-and-play attachment with auxiliary hydraulics and a 14-pin electrical connection, its compatible with laser receivers, sonic tracers, GNSS/GPS and total stations. The blade is controlled through the CLT’s joysticks, so no additional controls are required.
