Attached to any compact track loader and skid steer, the Coneqtec/Universal DC8000 compaction plate delivers 8,000 pounds of vertical compaction force to soil, sand or gravel. A specially formed front lip allows the plate to back-drag and level the surface prior to compaction. The 73-inch width extends beyond the carrier, which results in precise control around buildings or other obstacles, says the company. Another model, the DC5500, attaches to smaller compact machines.
At a service weight of 440 pounds, the Atlas Copco PB 210 Penta Series hydraulic breaker is designed for compact carriers, yet maintains an impact energy class rating of 550 foot-pounds. It accepts hydraulic flow of 15.9 gallons per minute at 2,030 pounds per square inch of pressure, delivering up to 1,150 blows per minute. The PB 210 features Atlas Copco's VibroSilenced damping system, via which noise can be cut by 18 dB(A) with acoustic insulation provided by elastic elements between the percussion mechanism and box enclosure.
Among the more than 100 attachments available for use by Ditch Witch compact utility equipment are trenchers for such applications as laying underground utilities and installing sprinkler pipe in various soil conditions. Center-mounted models can dig up to 36 inches deep and 6 inches wide. An offset wide variation enables operators to dig in confined areas up to 48 inches deep and 12 inches wide. Other brands of compact carriers can use the standard full-size attachment plate to work the Ditch Witch trencher.
With three model sizes, Stanley's Cyclone drop hammer fits various compact equipment types, including track loaders, for use in flatwork demolition projects. With nomenclature based on impact energy in foot-pounds, the Cyclone DH1500, DH3500 and DH9000 models are “ideal for rental customers and demolition contractors who need to remove concrete flooring,” says Tim Jones, president, Stanley Hydraulic Tools. A patented “skid” system keeps the Cyclone grounded and dissipates the shock as it pulverizes the concrete.
Cutting up to 5-inch trees and heavy grass without any material bunching under the deck, Atco Equipment's Blue Diamond extreme-duty brush cutter attachment uses a new direct-drive system. As well, the four-blade hub is now connected to the shaft by a 13-inch-diameter, 1-inch-thick flange, attached with 10 bolts. The attachment's oil-submerged, oversized, tapered bearings have an outer diameter of 4.5 inches. The brush cutter is used effectively with compact track loaders, such as the Case 445CT shown here.
As part of its extensive compact equipment attachment line under the FFC, McMillen, Sweepster, Harley, The Major and Bradco brands, Paladin offers two model sizes of dozer blades that leverage the traction and flotation of compact track loaders to take on grading jobs in sensitive locations. Available in widths of 84 and 96 inches, Bradco ATP dozer blades measure 28 inches in height, and can be angled up to 30 degrees and tilted up to 10 degrees.
