This fall, Brandt announced it was adding a dozer blade for ag tractors to its product line.
“For the agricultural side of Brandt, this is a new product for us,” says Sheldon Gerspacher, vice-president of sales, dealer channel. “It’s a natural fit for us. We’ve been making heavy-duty construction attachments on the construction side at Brandt for a few decades already. It was a pretty natural progression for us to develop a heavy-duty dozer blade for the ag industry. I’d say we’ve developed a semi-construction grade dozer blade for the ag industry.”
The blade is available in 12-, 14-, 16-, 18- and 20-foot widths, and the mounts are designed to fit all major-brand, high-horsepower, articulated tractors. It also offers hydraulic angle adjustment, allowing for changes from the cab.
“This first model we’ve launched is exclusively for articulated tractors,” Gerspacher says. “We’ll keep expanding the line to front-wheel assist tractors probably in (2021), and just keep expanding the offerings we’re going to have.”
Blade extensions are available for the top and sides for silage work. Generally, the new blade is designed for light-grading activities, snow removal, silage and typical farm needs.
“Our knowledge and know-how in heavy-duty attachments really gives us a leg-up in knowing how to build something heavy duty for the market,” says Gerspacher.
