Compact excavator operators who want to backfill and grade faster and more precisely can now do so with the hydraulically activated angle blade option from Bobcat Company. The Bobcat angle blade is being offered as a factory-installed option on the Bobcat 335 compact excavator and the conventional-drive 430 compact excavator. The option allows operators to hydraulically angle the blade +/- 25 degrees, thus creating a four-way blade with up, down, right angle and left angle movement. By angling the blade, operators can push material to one side of the machine without leaving dirt trails along the blade’s sides when grading and backfilling. This also enables them to complete a job in less time and often with fewer motions and passes.
