COMPACT DESIGN, AWESOME POWER
East Wind delivers a compact, easy to handle machine with the awesome power to make light work of various jobs around the small acreage farm.
Powered by the world famous China Diesel Engines of Perkins design, the direct injected, water cooled engine delivers abundant, tractable power. Literally millions of these engines have been produced over the years and they have earned a reputation for bullet proof reliability.
A power take off (PTO) and three point linkage fitted standard to the YCT Series sets it apart from other dozers on the market. This gives you the versatility to drive a slasher, fit a ripper, run a post hole digger and many other implements you would attach to a wheeled tractor.
And the giant footprint afforded by the long, wide tracks combined with the low centre of gravity gives you “go anywhere” traction and stability. It’s sure to be the envy of any wheeled tractor owner in steep and slippery conditions.
- All dozers are fitted with Roll Over Protective Structures (ROPS) / Falling Object Protective Structures (FOPS) including front and rear safety grills with ample head room and good visibility.
- A safety switch system prevents accidental take offs when starting.
- Retractable seat belts are fitted as standard.
- A PTO cover protects against accidental entanglement of operator.
COMFORT AND EASE OF USE
We understand that not all lifestyle farmers are experienced operators. That’s why our dozers are designed to be comfortable and easy to use.
Unlike other machines, steering is controlled with simple foot pedals leaving the hands free for operating the blade or bucket. A “left” steering pedal makes the machine turn left and a “right” steering pedal makes it turn right.
A single intuitive joystick enables the dozer blade to be moved 6 ways – up/down, angle left/angle right, tilt left/tilt right. The joystick also has a “float” position for easier leveling while backblading.
The easy to read instrument panel show you everything you need to know.
The multi-adjustable, suspension seat accommodates small and large operators and softens the bumps of dozer work.
The YCT Dozer’s intelligent design enables you to get more out of a compact machine and perform reliably in rugged conditions.
Even less experienced operators will find it easier to achieve level grading when working on uneven ground. This is achieved by putting the maximum length of track in contact with the ground using matched diameter drive/idler gears. This configuration also improves the lateral stability of the machine.
Keeping as much of the heavy castings as low as possible in the design creates a low centre of gravity for impressive stability on challenging slopes.
The hydraulic system features an oil cooler to keep it running at optimum temperatures. And beefed up steering clutches combined with a strongly mounted final drive optimise reliable driving power under load.
A solid steel construction bash plate protects the engine and gear box from impact. The hydraulic system features steel pipes neatly routed out of harm’s way to protect from accidental damage when amongst the rough stuff. Two “lockers” built into the side of the machine protect other components yet provide easy access through a lockable door. One locker houses the battery. The second protects the hydraulic control valve, sight bowl and filter.
Even the lighting system is protected. The headlights are well guarded in grills and the rear working light is mounted inside the main cage to avoid being bumped.
A hydraulic remote comes standard mounted on the rear of the dozer. This makes connecting up hydraulic powered attachments a breeze. Everything is put together in a simple, logical format to make it easy to conduct your own maintenance.
Backhoes are purpose built for digging. They are ideal for digging trenches or laying pipe and very handy for jobs such as cleaning out spillways or removing tree stumps. A variety of bucket sizes are available from 180mm to 900mm and even a ripper can be fitted.
A great feature of this backhoe is its robust connection to the dozer. It sits on the 3 point linkage system and is securely braced through an A frame bracket for greater stability. Yet the backhoe can be still be easily removed enabling a number of implements to be used.
Rubber Bolt-on Pads
YCT Dozers can be fitted with bolt-on rubber pads. These make the tracks less aggressive on the surfaces being driven on and are ideal if it is necessary to drive on concrete or asphalt.
