The new design no longer requires a seperate lift assembly. This shortens the overall length by 20″. The 24″ Packer Offset and Grader Adaptor Plate is bolted into place on the main 10×6 frame. The Grader Adaptor Plate is then bolted directly to the Grader or the Ripper Bar via 2 shanks.
The new design also sets a new standard for ground clearance at 18″.
The new frame has three main pivot points located at the rear of the machine. Each pivot point is linked via hardened steel pins and bushings to an arm assembly that is controlled by a hydraulic cylinder and central Accumulator System for down pressure control.
Each of the 3 or 4 link arms is then attached to a Walking Beam. The Walking Beam has one 6000lb double-ended spindle and hub, and two 14ply smooth roller tires attached to each end. The new design is able to follow the contour of the road by diverting oil from one hydraulic cylinder to another via the hydraulic Accumulator.
Continuous compaction ensures a smooth uniform driving surface. The result is a driving surface that stands up to the impact of weather and traffic. Continuous compaction results in less trips per maintenance mile per year. You will reduce your grader usage by 25-30% annually, saving you time, fuel and repairs.
