Vertically mounted 5.5″ x 20″ friction welded trunnion mount cylinders with a nitrobar rod are attached directly over the blade set. These cylinders are mounted in a nearly vertical position so that when the operator retracts the cylinder one inch, the blade moves one inch. This enables you to maintain greater control of engine RPMs and ground speed. By moving faster the dirt continues to “boil,” developing bigger and quicker loads.
Ashland utilizes a thick walled 16” round front section pipe for the 215TS2. A standard hydraulic accumulator provides a smoother ride by absorbing shock loads while transporting fully loaded scrapers. This adds protection for both the scraper and the tractor without the need for any additional plumbing.
The Pole is box built with an internal skeleton vs. formed halves to increase rigidity. The tapered trailing arm has excellent depth of frame near the front pipe to reduce failure at the corners. And with an elevated Front Section pipe, operators can take advantage of unmatched visibility and greater clearance while loading piles or in areas with heavy debris such as tall grass or brush.
