K-Tec Earthmovers have released a new accessory for 400+HP Tractors involved in earthmoving operations. The Pusher Block system replaces the front suitcase weights on the tractor, offering more weight in the front of the unit for a balanced weight distribution. The tractor may then be able to assist as a piece of support equipment in the push-loading of another scraper; while also pull its own scraper, packer, or ripper discs.
The K-Tec Pusher Block enables the tractor to become a more versatile and nimble piece of pushing equipment than a crawler dozer. Comparing the tractor pusher block to a dozer, the contractor is able to burn less fuel, reduce undercarriage costs by a minimum of 50%, and have higher speed mobility to reverse back to the start of the cut in time to push the next scraper for loading.
The pusher-block comes with cushion-push technology to reduce the strain on operators and structural equipment. K-Tec strives to provide leading edge earthmoving equipment and accessories for contractors to successfully and efficiently transform landscapes.
