Turns Loader into Backhoe

The MO6 backhoe attachment installs underground utilities as deep as 6 ft. Its narrow width of 36 in. (41.8 in. wide with stabilizer pads) enables it to perform jobs in confined areas where larger equipment cannot go. The MO6 is best suited for landscaping, sewage systems and septic tanks, water and power lines and many other excavation jobs. It fits on all Bobcat mini track loader models (MT50 through MT55) and is available with either a 9 in. or 12-in. bucket. A pivoting seat allows for easy engine access.

Smart Scale, the next generation of the company’s wireless onboard weigh scale, is designed for trucks, tractors and trailers with air suspensions. It uses sensors to measure temperature and pressure changes in a vehicle’s air suspension and wirelessly relays the data to a handheld receiver using a low-powered radio transmitter. Smart Scale provides a reading from the cab, the loader or within 100 ft of the vehicle. The WA65-5 and the WA70-5 are the latest additions to the manufacturer’s Dash-5 line of wheel loaders. The machines are a versatile alternative to skid steers because they can be used in either forklift or bucket operations, according to the maker. For easy service access, each wheel loader features a tilt-forward operator’s compartment and wide-opening engine hood. The new 2112E fixed-blade ejector scraper, combined with the manufacturer’s 9020 Series scraper tractor and a short drawbar, moves up to 42 cu yd of material per cycle. It can be pulled as a single unit or in tandem. Features include improved styling and rear visibility, as well as an industrial-strength yoke-type cast hitch. It also offers the lowest tongue-weight ratio on the market, which helps reduce drawbar weight. Manufacturer introduces a new version of its next generation 3D Grade Control System. The enhanced GCS900 has the flexibility to be used on dozers, motor graders, excavators and scrapers. It allows contractors to use a common platform across their entire fleet for all phases of earthmoving and to improve their productivity—from mass excavation to finished grading. It also provides the contractor with the option to select from GPS, GPS and laser or advanced total station technology to accurately position the blade or bucket in real time.
