New AG Series Row Crop Blades
Grouser launched a new AG 240 row crop blade, an upgrade to the company’s AG 220 model. The blade uses a new mounting system that provides higher ground clearance and a single-lever attachment system. The AG 240 also features a new parallel lift system that keeps the blade closer to the tractor for more precise control of material and an optional weight carrier bracket that allows you to quickly attach and detach weight packages.
The 54-inch tall AG 240 blade is available in 12- to 16-foot widths and is compatible with a wide range of tractor brands. The blade can be quickly and easily mounted to the frames of 100 to 370 hp. row crop tractors with a bolt-on undercarriage design that saves time during initial installation. The AG 240 undercarriage and lift frame are installed high underneath the tractor to provide better ground clearance.
The single-lever quick attach system is mounted at the front of the tractor, which allows one operator to quickly and efficiently align the tractor to the blade, drive forward, and engage the lever to lock it into place. To detach the blade, simply unhook the hydraulic hoses, pull the lever behind the blade, and back away. Grouser also redesigned the hydraulic hose connections at the front of the unit into one easy-access configuration that is mounted where you can quickly connect or disconnect the hoses.
The new AG 240 features a parallel lift system that has top and bottom connection points to keep the blade parallel to the front of the tractor, even when it is lifted as high as possible. This reduces weight transfer and keeps the blade closer to the tractor for better control. The lift system maintains the ideal angle for dozing, which gives you more precise control.
Grouser offers optional end plates for all blades. The plates, which are designed for bolt-on installation, increase carrying capacity without adding additional width and allow you to push more material in a single pass.
