My friend is considering purchasing a Cat 6-way dozer blade for his 246B. He dropped it off for my comments this afternoon. This is a brand new (only used twice) blade which an owner of a 277B is selling. He didn't like it and would rather use his D3 for dozing. The original owner is selling the practically new blade for a heavy discount. I have been eager to try a 6-way dozer blade for my machine, so I was excited when he offered to try it on his machine. I only used it for about a half hour, so please take my comments with a grain of salt. First off, I don't like the fact that the tilt function will not work unless you are using the angle function. It makes it difficult to make corrections while dozing because you are adjusting two parameters at the same time. This would be reason enough for me not to like the attachment. Secondly, the dozer blade is close to the machine and it is difficult to see the cutting edge, especially when angled. A true dozer has much better cutting edge visibility. Third, I think skidsteers are generally pretty much a short wheelbase machine. Any adjustments of the depth of the cut are magnified when the machine travels forward. This might be less of a concern with a track equipped machine, but the original owner has a 277B and is still selling the machine. Overall, I give the 6-way dozer blade a thumbs down. The dozer blade does offer a skidsteer some great capabilities like tilt and angle, but comes no where close to true dozer grading capability.
