December 14, 2006
MOLINE, Ill. (November 28, 2006)-For skid steer and compact track loader owners looking to finish grade or simply move a lot of material at once, John Deere has the perfect solution: the new Worksite Pro DB84 and DB96 Dozer Blade attachments.
The dozer blades are designed to improve the productivity of skid steers and compact track loaders by transforming them into a compact bulldozer, said Doug Laufenberg, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry Company. The rugged design ensures they deliver maximum uptime in a wide variety of tasks.
The 24-inch high DB84 and DB96 come in 84-inch and 96-inch widths, respectively. A 30-degree hydraulic angle and ten-degree hydraulic tilt feature let the operator make blade adjustments on the go for increased versatility and maximum productivity. Each blade is Quik-Tatch mounted and comes standard with a reversible cutting edge and adjustable skid shoes for long-term durability.
Like all Worksite ProTM attachments, the dozer blades are optimized to work with John Deere equipment, but they are compatible with most competitive models.
