The AP attachment grader Tornado is a larger version of type AP Twister and suitable for wheel loaders. The blade can be rotated to an angle of 46 degrees left and right thanks to the industrial ball bearing turntable. The Tornado is equipped with a grader blade in widths from 220-300 cm and is designed for the (laser controlled) levelling or sloping of subsoils.

The AP attachment grader type Hurricane is perfect for really large projects. The blade can be rotated to an maximum angle 50 degrees left and right thanks to the industrial ball bearing turntable. The Hurricane is equipped with a grader blade in widths from 300-360 cm and is designed for the (laser controlled) levelling or sloping of subsoils.

All AP attachment graders are perfectly suitable for the levelling / maintenance of sand / gravel paths (among other things) in for instance civil engineering and forestry. Thanks to the forwards driving direction the driver has a good view of the work. Another major advantage is that the tractor / wheel loader drives on the already slid lane so that deviations in the result in the first pass are already minimal, the driver’s comfort is optimum and it is possible to drive at high speed.

The grader blade can directly be put on the desired depth. In only a half pass a flat subsoil is ready so one can immediately start working or driving. When the grader blade is adjusted to slope it is possible to create a roof profile or for instance a sand or gravel road in one single pass, forwards and backwards.

Standard equipment AP attachment grader Tornado / Hurricane 

  • Changeable Hardox knives
  • Height, side shift and blade rotation 100% proportionally controlled
  • Black/white control of the other functions
  • Joystick control
  • 2 Stainless steel receiver masts
  • Electric/hydraulic control

 

The cutting angle of the grader blade of both the Tornado and the Hurricane is hydraulically adjustable to obtain the perfect cutting angle at changing surfaces. The angle of the Tornado is +40/-40 graden and the angle of the Hurricane is no less than +50/-50 graden.
