54 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | September 2014 New & Improved Kubota Tractor Corporation's new Hydraulic 6-in-1 Blade for the KX040-4 Compact Excavator is avail- able in the U.S. market exclusively. Operators can now tilt the blade to six different positions, making leveling and backfilling – even on inclines and uneven terrain – incredibly easy. The blade's capacity has increased almost 0.75 cubic yards over the standard blade, and now enables six different positions: left-end up, right-end up, left-end forward, right- end forward, raised, and lowered. Just by moving the dozer lever, operators can angle the blade right or left to push soil aside while the machine moves forward, eliminating the need for repetitive right-angle positioning while backfill- ing trenches. The operator can command all six functions simultaneously for more convenient landscaping, shaping and backfilling control. At 5 feet 10.9 inches wide, the blade impressively stretches across the entire machine width, even when tilted. The tilt function gives contractors the flexibility to shape foundation edges for runoff, and then complete the job with slopes and swales for ample water drainage and a professional look.

The new design features an improved center of gravity for better load management. A single hanger is featured on the 60-inch-wide frame for increased visibility and reduced weight. Drop-forged tines provide increased sturdiness and reduce material move- ment while it is being transported over uneven terrain. Wheel loaders may be turned into versatile heavy-duty fork- lifts to safely transport large loads of construction-related materials such as pallets and pipes. To complete the size ranges covered, Paladin continues to offer its classic 100 and 600-900 models. JRB Construction Utility Forks are compatible with JRB's Quick Hitch Mount and other industry quick coupler systems. Load capacities are rated beyond wheel loader lift capacities and are based on a 24-inch load center. The forks are available with manually adjustable tines or hydraulically actuated tines for side-to-side adjustments from the cab. Optional hydraulic side shift allows for precise material placement. JRB Construction Utility Forks are designed with carriage widths ranging from 60 inches to 106 inches. Tine lengths range from 48 inches to 96 inches and tines are available in sizes ranging from two inches by four inches to four inches by eight inches.
