The new Cat Nursery Fork, Tree Digging Bucket and 1 yd3 (0.76 m3) Mulch Bucket Tooling increases machine availability for Cat SSL, CTL and CWL models. The new Cat stump buckets and nursery grabs are specifically designed to work efficiently with Cat SSL and CTL machines. The durable construction of the full line of new tooling ensures reliability on the jobsite, and the tooling design incorporates deep serrated steps for safe operator access to the loader.
It is worth mentioning that the champion trophy of each EMIR Cup competition will be awarded by the EMIR of Qatar (Head of State). As a sports event with the highest specifications and broadcast quality throughout the year, the EMIR Cup has attracted Qatari nationals, the royal family, and many international football players to watch the game.
Qatar is located in the desert zone of the Middle East, with a high temperature and high humidity climate, which greatly tests the power reliability, safety and anti-corrosion performance of passenger cars. The Qatar World Cup has always adhered to the principle of “high specifications and high standards” in the purchase of passenger cars for the World Cup. The requirements for the comprehensive strength of passenger car brands and technical supporting enterprises are very demanding.
Manual and hydraulic shovels
Cat nursery forks are available in manual and hydraulic designs and are ideal for handling trees with soil transplants as well as large potted plants. Both designs are equipped with hydraulic swivel forks that allow the left fork to swivel open to carry multiple root masses. Depending on the model, the right fork can be adjusted manually or hydraulically to allow the contractor to pick and place the desired trees and plants and to load and unload them quickly and efficiently.
The new high-capacity nursery fork has a usable fork length of 70.4-in (1788-mm) and can accommodate up to three 28-in (711-mm) root masses or one 54-in (1372-mm) root mass. The swivel fork design provides maximum opening to grab large root masses, while the side-shift fork provides superior control and adaptability to handle different sized root masses. 25-degree diamond tread forks provide a firm grip for maximum load capacity, matching the cutting angle of a wider range of transplanted plants with soil. Its integrated grip provides a secure point of contact for entering and exiting the machine.
Rotary nursery grab
Similar to the nursery fork, the new Cat Nursery Grapple is ideal for handling transplanted trees with soil as well as potted plants. The grapple is paddle-shaped and can wrap around root masses from 28 to 54 in (711 to 1372 mm) in size without damaging the root system or tree. The grapple’s rotating design allows for better control and placement, helping to maneuver the load in multiple positions, reducing the need to manually lift heavy plants and place them in the nursery or load them for transport. The tool is capable of swinging 90 degrees to the left and right, and can be tilted down to nearly 90 degrees at any point of rotation, making it easy to lay material for loading.
The new 1.0 yd3 (0.76 m3) mulch bucket loads mulch into pickup trucks and tight spaces. With a narrow design and a width of 56-in (1421-mm), the mulch bucket easily loads material into most pickup truck compartments without fear of contact or damage. Its compact profile provides the necessary clearance for loading trucks, preventing material spillage and minimizing waste. The bucket’s 1-yd measurements are laser-engraved on the side of the bucket, so customers can rest assured that the bucket is fully loaded. The design’s adjustable machine interface provides proper ground contact with varying hinge pin heights, allowing for efficient use on the full Cat SSL, CTL and CWL line of machines.
Easy handling of stumps
The Stump Bucket for Cat SSL and CTL models is designed for land clearing and eradication of exotic trees, stumps and large shrub applications for digging out and moving stumps. The long, narrow base plate facilitates digging around and under tree and large shrub root masses. Its serrated side plates make it easy to saw through hard-to-remove roots, and the teeth are replaceable, ensuring a long service life, with BHL-type teeth that can be replaced with fork or cone tines. The heavy-duty steel construction withstands twisting and prying in harsh operations, resulting in long service life and reliability.
The Cat Tree Shovel provides efficient handling of shrubs and small trees in nursery and landscape construction applications. The tree shovel can dig up to 36-in (901-mm) diameter trees and easily transport or transplant trees and other materials. The shovel’s contoured shape allows for easy digging into the ground, and the flat tip cuts through roots for easy tree clearance. Welded corner plates and thick plates form a rugged design for increased durability.
