You lose 4 of width overall when you ramp the blade either way. The blade is painted gloss black unless you state a preferred color that is obtainable.The blade pictured is painted new cat yellow. It will come with flat faced couplers and spiral protective sheaths.
Our blade is easy to hook up and operate, all you need is a two way toggle switch to control the selector valve. The in cab hydraulic controls control the motion. The selector valve allows you to switch from the ramping (left to right motion) or to the oscillation (clockwise motion). Some machines have in cab electric switches through the wiring harness that allows you to choose what switch in the cab you want to use. Most manufactures have blank plug ins that you can tap into to hook into the selector valve.
This is made and meant for the larger machines I can also make them in the 7 foot and 7.5 foot widths and can make listings for them. The color in the picture is new cat yellow. Selector valve hoses hydraulic couplers are included. We can also custom make blades to suit you needs in the 6 and 4 way style.
