The Worksite Pro line for skid steers and compact track loaders include two “dozer” blades, five vibratory rollers, four cold planers, two tillers, and two hydraulic breakers (also works with compact excavators). These attachments also can function effectively with competitive models. In particular, John Deere=s new breakers feature a solid one-piece design that does not need side bolts, resulting in a tougher breaker that is ideal for a wide variety of heavy-duty applications. The low-pressure, nitrogen-charged design cushions operators from recoil, while the narrow overall shape allows these breakers to work in tight quarters, crowded jobsites and places other breakers can=t. Instead of a high-pressure accumulator, Worksite Pro breakers employ hydraulics and a gas-assist cycle to develop force, resulting in more efficient operation and high power-to-weight ratios. With few seals and moving parts, and no special tools necessary, these breakers provide durability and simplified maintenance. 800.503.3373, www.johndeere.com
