Bobcat’s new heavy-duty snow blades feature blade oscillation, a trip edge and a box-style mainframe. They’re available in 86-, 96- and 108-inch widths and are approved for use on Bobcat S130 to S330 skid steer loaders, T140 to T320 compact track loaders, V417 VersaHandlers, and the A300 all-wheel steer loader and Toolcat utility vehicles. A double-acting cylinder angles the blade 30 degrees left or right. Blade angle is controlled by a fingertip switch on a joystick. The blade oscillates five degrees to keep in contact with the surface, preventing the need for multiple passes to clear snow.
