Easy Grading and Ground Ripping without Hydraulics
Grading Bars and Land Planes are commonly used to make ground more suitable for drainage, sports, landscape features and turfgrass preparation. They’re also used for gravel roads and driveways, paths and parking lots.
Grading Bars are the fastest and easiest way to cut high spots down and fill small depressions. Many graders also include a row of ripper (scarifier) teeth. In the past they have been lowered manually by the operator climbing outside the cab or through the use of hydraulics.
The KAGE GreatER Bar skid steer land plane with rippers makes it easy for the operator and removes the potential of hydraulic failure by using a mechanically-activated Quick Rip Bar.
Skid loader operators will also benefit from teeth that retract automatically when moving backwards and bucket hooks that allow the operator to carry a bucket from job to job. Key mechanical pieces are built from HARDOX™ steel which provides longer wear life and more durability.
This GreatER Bar and Quick Rip Bar are overbuilt by design to give you the most return on your investment.
Mechanically Activated Grader / Ripper Bar
Graders are key to leveling the ground. The GreatER Bar™ makes it easier by allowing the operator to switch between a land plane and a ground ripper without hydraulics and without leaving the cab of the skid loader. The versatile GreatER Bar skid steer land planes have used to improve performance and efficiency for leveling and scarifying ground for a multitude of locations and soil/substrate materials including:
- Gravel Roads, Driveways and Parking Lots
- Sand Driveways and Horse Arenas
- Dirt Construction Sites, Deer Food Plots and Trails
- Clay Motorsport Tracks
Not only do they remove washboarding, wheel depressions and potholes, but they also aid in the removal of rocks, tree roots and vegetation overgrowth without removing excess topsoil.
Available in 2 Ground Breaking Sizes
The KAGE GreatER Bar is available in both 6-foot and 7-foot skid steer land plane widths. This is to accommodate different size skid loaders. This gives operators the option of grading, scarifying and leveling in widths that extend beyond the width of the tires on wheeled machines or tracks on compact track loaders.
