Material movers

Got dirt? To move, that is? If you’re in the market for an earthmoving system that can do more than a box scraper, but you’re not quite ready for an industrial model, the ICON AG-10 scraper may be the product for you.

“The AG-10 is the ideal earthmoving system for the farmer, feedlot operator, or rancher whose needs exceed that of a box scraper or carryall, but are below that of an industrial scraper,” says Gary Douglas, product support manager for ICON Industries. “With a heaped capacity of 10 yards, the AG-10 can still move a vast amount of material in a relatively short time. Plus, it has many of the same features of the bigger industrial models.”

The AG-10 features a frame engineered around 80,000 and 100,000 tensile strength steel. The front gate and eject wall are finished in dirt-resisting epoxy to maintain efficiency in sticky soils. The double-wall frame sidewall design increases overall strength and rigidity, while protecting hydraulics.

The front dolly on the unit not only improves maneuverability via 50° of horizontal movement and 70° of lateral movement, but also helps support the load. A supported load means you can use an average-size tractor with this implement.

“The dolly is also designed to transfer up to 3,000 pounds of weight from the load onto the tractor drawbar to assist with traction when loading. It also provides extra lift on the front of the bowl to provide a full 18 inches of ground clearance during transport,” notes Douglas.

The list price is $41,690. To learn more, contact ICON Industries at 785/738-6613 or visit www.iconindinc.com.

Sno-Pro Loader Blades Improved

The Sno-Pro loader blades from Curtis Industries aren’t just for moving snow anymore. The company recently introduced a new and improved line to make the blades more versatile for a variety of applications.

A 30° hydraulic angle has been added for more efficient, productive plowing. The four heavy-duty trip springs increase protection against blade damage from surface obstructions. The full-trip moldboard protects both the blade and the loader. Highly visible guide markers make it easy to locate the blade edge or corners.

The blades offer several mounting options and each is made with heavy-duty 11-gauge powder-coated steel, which lessens debris pileup.
