    What Components Make up a Skid Steer Dozer Blade?

    Generally, a skid steer dozer blade consists of only a few main parts. Most attachments are hydraulic, so they usually come with the required hydraulic connections. Additionally, a sharpened lower edge (the actual blade) is always present and does the main part of the work. 


    In many brands, the blade offers adjustable skid shoes to set the edge to the depth you require. Finally, a curved back panel completes the ensemble and allows the machine to move the dirt that you've scraped off the work surface.


    What Does a Skid Steer Dozer Blade Do?

    Dozer blades are a kind of attachment that allows you to perform leveling and scraping operations with your skid steer. They're ideal for tasks like backfilling, preparing landscaping areas, grading building materials, and creating runoff swales.


    How Does a Skid Steer Dozer Blade Work?

    As the name implies, a dozer blade relies heavily on a sharpened lower edge. The sharp edge scrapes, loosens, and grades the dirt, then the cupped back of the blade moves it forwards. 


    One of the dozer blade's useful features is that the hydraulics allow you to tilt the attachment in either direction. Typically, the maximum angle you can reach is a bit low (around 35 to 45 percent), but it allows you to scrape curves and corners easily. 


    Many blades also allow for a certain amount of oscillation, so you can easily tilt them upwards and downwards. Although the change is usually only ten degrees or so, it will easily grade areas into different depths.


    What Happens If You Have a Faulty Skid Steer Dozer Blade?

    If you have a faulty blade, you're unlikely to get a smooth scraping experience. The attachment might wobble or tilt unexpectedly, leaving rough patches or uneven grading. If the edge is dull, it may not cut through the ground surface as it should.


    However, if the hydraulics are faulty, the blade might stall or be unable to move. Furthermore, you may not be able to use the tilt or oscillation as you usually would. One definite consequence is that you'll put extra strain on the skid steer itself.


    How Do I Know If I Need to Replace a Skid Steer Dozer Blade?

    You need to check how the attachment as a whole operates. If it's not cutting properly, you may be able to replace the cutting edge. If it's working badly, or not at all, you probably need to replace it.


    How Do I Choose a Skid Steer Dozer Blade?

    When choosing a dozer blade, you need to ensure that you pick one which will work with your skid steer's hydraulic system. You can't use standard and high-pressure attachments interchangeably on most machines. 


    You should also check that the blade you buy has sufficient oscillating and tilting capacities to meet your needs. Finally, dozer blades come in various widths, and you should buy the one which is wide enough for your intended purposes.
