Crawler Tractors and Sidebooms: New Holland

January 2010 Vol. 65 No. 1

Models D85B and D95B crawler dozers offer a hydraulic sideboom option.

The attachment offers a lift capacity of 20,000 pounds and features a three lever hydraulic control system giving the operator simultaneous control of load and boom functions.

The 15-foot sideboom conveniently folds for ease of transportation, and two extendable counterweight segments, each 1,120 pounds, can be easily removed for shipping. While the counterweights add maximum stability, the attachment’s low and compact design guarantees optimum balance and control as well excellent visibility. Quick release hinge pins allow for easy boom removal and maintenance.

The crawler dozers have an easy-tilt platform for convenient access that allows daily maintenance to be done from ground level. 630.260.4000, www.newholland.com
