Description for the made for
Gravely 400/800/8000 Series
Snow Blade / Dozer Mounting Bracket
Bar Latch Cam Lock Arm
These Bar Latch Cam Lock Arms are designed to use with the brackets that bolt to the drive axle of the 400/800/8000 series four wheel tractor to support the back end of the snow plow/dozer blade assembly.
These latches are made to work more smoothly than the OEM with a cam lock design to pull the latch bar back into the lock position more easily and are installed on the outside of the Cogan Valley Machine produced main Dozer Mounting Bracket for more accessible operation.
Cogan Valley Machine Exclusive Value Added Feature:
A feature has been added to the bar latch to make it easier to load the dozer frame into the brackets. Now it is possible to load the frame into the brackets using a more hands free effort (and therefore safer) with a self opening and self closing action of the latch as the dozer frame latch bar passes under it to the lock position. This is do to the latch's innovative shape and the addition of a stop pin installed on the bottom of the bracket to prevent the bar latch from swinging below its bar lock position.
The latch has received a Powder Coat Paint for a durable finish.
As we have determined many times in the past, it usually takes little effort to improve on a product to make it better or work easier.
These also can be installed on the inside of the OEM brackets (in most cases) to give the operator some of the same convenient benefits of operation. To do a complete install, the OEM bracket will need to be drilled for the stop pin.
These are available as a kit, with all the necessary hardware to convert your OEM latch to the Cogan Valley Machine Exclusive design.
