DOZER MODEL SPECIFICATIONS


TOUGH CHOICES

We design all our bulldozer blades to be modular. Because sometimes our customers buy a blade for one reason and then add an attachment to make it perform even more.

It’s all part of our thinking that our dozer blades should be as upgradable as they are strong.

TOP EXTENSION.

Top extension attachments are designed to maximize pushing capacity by preventing spillover.

SILAGE EXTENSION.

Our Degelman Silage Extensions are made from heavy-grade steel and are two feet high so you have maximum volume control. They’re also see-through for increased safety and efficiency.

HIGH VOLUME SIDE PLATE.

Whatever degree your blade is angled at, adding a High Volume Side Plate means you can dramatically improve the amount of volume you can push. It also decreases the amount of snow trailing off your blade so you move more snow with fewer passes.

ONE-FOOT EXTENSION.

If you want a bigger blade, or if you add dual wheels to your tractor and want extensions as wide as your wheelbase, our One-Foot Extensions are the answer. Easy to add and as strong as the blade they’re attached to.

BITE EXTENSION.

Similar to our One-Foot Extension, our Bite Extension allows you to doze along curbs, foundations or silage container bunks and scrape material off without leaving a trail.

MAX TEMP® STEEL.

MaxTemp steel is the same steel that’s used in industrial bulldozer blades. It’s made from hardened high carbon steel that’s strong and durable without being brittle. Made for dozing dirt, levelling roadways, gravel or snow.

SERRATED MAX TEMP® STEEL.

Serrated MaxTemp Steel cutting edges use the same hardened steel as above but include an added serrated edge that’s ideal for dozing ice.

RUBBER CUTTING EDGE.

Designed to be used either for slurry barns or for snow removal. The Rubber Cutting Edge essentially squeegees barn floors easily for maximum material pick-up. And for snow removal usage, the rubber edge means you can doze without fear of tripping on manhole covers.

URETHANE CUTTING EDGE.

A harder material made for close scraping and removal of compact snow and ice. The Urethane Cutting Edge is a durable polymer that gives you three times the wear resistance of rubber while protecting you from tripping on manhole covers. Available for Strongbox only.

ROCK DIGGER ATTACHMENT.

Used for digging boulder sized rocks and stumps this attachment can replace the blade on 4600, 5700 and 6600 models.

WE MAKE OUR OWN

TWICE THE SALT RESISTANCE.

In standardized testing, Degelman cylinders boast twice the salt spray rating of ordinary hydraulic cylinders. So, our cylinders last longer and can withstand corrosion better. Just more confirmation that our cylinders are up to the high standards we set for all Degelman products and parts.

INDUCTION-HARDENED SHAFTING.

We start with oversized induction-hardened chrome shafting for strength. It’s a premium shaft that has the hardest surface possible to resist nicks, without being brittle. This allows the shaft to be tough, but flexible enough to bend without breaking. As a result, our cylinders last longer and can handle tougher loads for angling, tilting and lifting.

HEAT-TREATED BUSHINGS.

We use heat-treated spring bushings pressed right into the lugs of our dozer blades. These bushings take an incredible amount of pressure from the hydraulic system. Made from heat-treated steel, the bushings and lugs last longer and can take a lot more pressure. It also significantly reduces egging around the hole and maintains the efficiency and integrity of the entire system.

GREASE GUN READY.

All these pins are easily accessible by a grease gun, so they’re easy to maintain and grease can easily be applied to the high-pressure areas that need it. It’s all part of our philosophy to build equipment right, which means to make sure it lasts as long as possible. When you buy a Degelman, you know you’re buying quality.

200-HOUR CORROSION RESISTANT CHROME.

If chrome rusts, it gets pitted and can tear the seals. To increase the lifespan of our cylinders, we choose the best induction chrome shafting available. It’s the highest rated and rust resistant chrome available in the industry.

DIFFERENT STROKES.

We designed our cylinders for maximum stroke to reduce the number of passes across the shaft during normal operation. Because the longer the stroke, the less wear and tear there is on the shaft, the barrel and pins. And because the cylinder is integral to the performance of the entire system, having it last as long as possible is critical.

SUPERIOR SEALS.

Our five-part industrial seal package and wear band system means zero metal-to-metal contact for increased longevity. The seal package also includes a surge protector seal made from high grade polymers—so if there’s a spike in hydraulic pressure, oil won’t go past the piston. And the rod wiper seals are top-of-the-line components that clear away ice, debris and snow.

SOLID STEEL ENDS.

We also manufacture the cylinder ends—where the cylinders take the most punishment—out of solid steel versus cast iron. We do it because steel is stronger and creates a premium weld surface. Ends are plasma cut on a computerized machine where they are milled, drilled and tapped to precision.

HIGH GRADE WEAR BANDS.

We build wear bands into our cylinder system made out of a special high-grade wear material that eliminates scoring on the shaft and cylinder wall during high side loads. Without high-grade wear bands, the cylinders get scratched and become ineffective. The addition of wear bands to our cylinders means increased durability and better performance under maximum side loads.

INDUSTRIAL-LOCKED PINS.

If chrome rusts, it gets pitted and can tear the seals. To increase the lifespan of our cylinders, we choose the best induction chrome shafting available. It’s the highest rated and rust resistant chrome available in the industry.

DRILLED & TAPPED, NOT WELDED.

Welding the ports on a cylinder can cause the barrel itself to warp. So, we drill and tap all our ports to maintain the integrity of the cylinder barrel and to make them strong as possible. It reduces wear and increases the longevity of the cylinder. A small detail, we know, but an important one.

Strongbox

The unique design of the cone gusset provides a self-cleaning surface to prevent snow and ice from accumulating while increasing structural support to the side plates. The Strongbox® is equipped with unique skid shoes that mount flush with the side plate, letting you clean closer than ever to walls and curbs. This box blade is a simple, strong and effective tool for high volume snow removal and is so unique it has four patents behind the name.

Speedblade

So whether it's big parking lots, sidewalks or industrial yards, you can change the width on the fly depending on the job and dart around the site quickly and easily. With the ability to position the wings wide-up to 18' wide-you can use your skid steer loader to move snow five times faster than a conventional plow alone. We designed the Speedblade® with a low profile so the operator can have the highest visibility as possible.
