Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great. Tons of hours left on them!" - Levi McDermott (Mustang 2086 skid steer loader);                                                                                           "Made my bobcat work like a Cat dozer; Easy on off" - Roy Young (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "I think you make a superior product..." - Eric Wellish, (Case 1845C skid steer loader);                                                                                           "I really like the traction that I get from my tracks, and will most likely consider repurchasing when needed... I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product... Good job, keep it up.

4-Way vs. 6-Way Dozer Blade: Which Is Right for You?

4-Way vs. 6-Way Dozer Blade: Which Is Right for You?
When you need to spread materials across a job site or push and cut virgin soil, a skid steer dozer blade attachment is one of the best products to have. Designed to push loose materials like dirt, rock, and even snow, these attachments can give your equipment an entirely new range of applications. But as you’re getting ready to purchase one of these products for your own skid steer, you might find it difficult to pick between the two types: four-way and six-way blades. Read on to learn about four-way and six-way dozer blades to help determine which is right for you.

4 Way Dozer Blades

Skid Steer Four-way dozer blades allow you to push materials and cut angles and slopes with tilt action. Being able to tilt your blade makes quick work of digging ditches or spreading dirt over uneven slopes. Four-way blades are a great low-cost option for pushing material. An experienced operator can conduct up to 70% of the jobs as a 6-way dozer blade at half the cost.

6 Way Dozer Blades

Six-way dozer blades, on the other hand, offer even more precision. With the ability to move and push loose dirt and gravel at up to six different angles, they’re ideal for maximizing operator control over the materials. You are able to tilt your blade plus the additional ability to angle your blade to the left or right. Tilting the blade allows you to cut ditches and contour your spread or cut. The ability to angle your blade allows you to plow dirt to one side or the other. Being able to push dirt to one side reduces the number of passes for certain jobs such as filling in a ditch or building a path or roadway. A six way dozer blade is the most efficient skid steer dozer attachment you can buy. This dozer attachment gives you the best versatility which will allow you to finish your job quicker.

How To Choose Between Them

Though four-way and six-way dozer blades are similar in a lot of ways, they each have their own distinct purposes. Four-way models can accomplish most jobsite tasks for a low initial capital investment. However, skid steer six-way dozer blades are much more versatile and allow you to get your job done much faster, especially over contoured surfaces. So when it comes to deciding which one is right for you, make sure you strongly consider your scope of work, initial investment, and speed at which you need to finish jobs.

No matter the type of blade you’re in the market for, McLaren Industries has just what you need. Our skid steer six-way dozer blades offer the most bang for your buck and lowest cost per hour over time. They feature a powerful tilting and angling mechanism and a wide range of angles to effectively push and spread dirt to your exact specifications.
