    Our new loader plow-16' total length, 8' center section with 4' wings. Hydraulically angles, wings hydraulically angle in and out also. Very expensive, but will pay for itself in time by less labor/fuel/equipment time, not to mention less aggravation of chasing your wind rows like with our regular 12' plows. This blade gives you the best of both worlds- a box plow and a straight plow. I have been wanting one of these for years and so far it has been even better than I thought-xysport

    Nice

    Looks great, and will improve your plowing times big time, just wondering why there are big gaps between the end plates and the main plow when it's in box mode....., gotta leave some trailers behind with holes that big ???

    I agree. Some truck mudflaps will do the trick to seal them up yet be flexible at the same time.

    GREAT IDEA, If you could only make it a quick change bucket/plow. You would be able to plow and then load-out. Just an idea. GREAT JOB.

    Well the machine has a quick coupler on it, so it is easy to take the blade off/put on a bucket to haul snow or hook on the snowblower and blow it outta there...:gunsfiring:

    I'm assuming when the wings are folded forward it's for transport or a narrow part of the lot, so the gaps don't matter. The blade will push more with the wings set at 45 degrees.

    Cog 1, that blade does look built very well!

    The CAT has about 3000 hrs on it. The blade is pretty heavy duty, made by a company in Norway called Gjerstad who also makes mining equipment. I have used the blade a couple times and haven't noticed any trails but like someone said I only U the blade totally for transport down the highway.
