The new Struck MAGNATRAC® MH8500 deserves its nickname as a true “Swiss Army Knife of all Compact Earth-Moving Equipment.” This powerful, yet affordable track loader is a perfect match for contractors, ranchers and farmers because of the huge array of attachments that it can accommodate. Here are some of the attachments you can use it with so that you get an idea about how versatile this diesel-powered compact bulldozer / track loader is.
1. Speed Hitch for the Ultimate in Versatility
The SH44 Speed Hitch Kit is the perfect attachment for your MAGNATRAC® MH8500! It will enable you to quickly attach a variety of our popular bucket and blade options and use hundreds of 3rd party attachments, such as: apost hole digger, a snow blower, brush mower, stump grinder, or trencher to the front of the compact track loader. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/sh44-speed-hitch-kit/
2. Heavy-Duty Backhoe for Serious Excavations
A D108 Backhoe is one MAGNATRAC® MH8500 attachment you’ll need if you have a lot of outdoor construction or earth-moving work. This attachment can help you: dig footings, run a water line, reach into a ravine or even clean out a pond. This attachment can execute a 164-degree swing in order to dig to a maximum depth of 8 feet. Choose from a 8″, 16″, 24″ or even a 36″ bucket for sidewalk excavations. What more would you ask for, for all your trenching and excavation needs? https://struckcorp.com/attachments/d108-backhoe/
3. Front Loader that Can Take all Your Punishment
The HL900 Loader is one attachment that can enable you to appreciate how powerful your MAGNATRAC® MH8500 is. This attachment has 2,300 lbs of bucket breakout capacity to help you dig out that dream house foundation. It can also help you to lift approx. 2,000 lbs off the ground and about 800 pounds to a height of 93″ in order to avoid obstacles at the job-site. Don’t imagine that you will feel all this weight while using this attachment; gentle finger pressure is all you need to move the load up or down as well as to curl or dump the contents in the loader. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/hl900-loader/
4. Category #1 Three Point Hitch with PTO Power
Full sized, all-hydraulic, Category #1 Three-Point Rear Hitch providing “lift, float, and down pressure” to both lift arms. Add a PTO70 Power Takeoff, for running rear brush mowers, post hole driver or other popular standard tractor implements. Hydraulic PTO turns at 540 rpm and runs off the standard 1 3/8″ diameter, six-splined shaft. Includes cylinder safety lock to hold hitch “up” for maintenance. Develops 1,000 lbs. lift. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/rh65-three-point-rear-hitch-kit-category-1/
5. Five Shank Ripper/Scarifier
Digging through dry, hard or compacted soil will be a breeze if you get the S14 5-tooth ripper for your MAGNATRAC® MH8500 compact bulldozer/track-loader. You can simply select the teeth that are most suited for the specific project that you are tackling, and the attachment will do the rest of the heavy stuff. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/s14-five-shank-ripper-kit/
6. Safety first with a Roll Over Protection Structure
The MAGNATRAC® MH8500 is so versatile that you would be doing it an injustice to confine it to your farm or ranch alone. This compact bulldozer or track loader is perfectly suited for farmers and contractors alike. But, there’s a catch. Workplace safety rules demand that an employee should only operate a tractor or similar equipment once roll-over protection is in place. This is where the ROPS85 kit comes in. This attachment can be fitted onto the tractor so that an operator will have roll-over protection. The kit has a 2-point overhead design that also includes a seat belt to strap the operator in. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/rops85-roll-over-protection-structure-kit/
7. Speed Excavating Bucket with Heavy-Duty Replaceable Teeth
The SB480TS Excavating Bucket was designed to do as its name suggests; excavating. Six professional-quality replaceable teeth made of special “abrasive resistant” cast steel are perfect for serious digging. Universal mounting hitch design allows you to attach this bucket onto your MAGNATRAC® MH8500 quickly and easily. This attachment works with a MH8500 which has an HL900 Series loader and SH44 Speed Hitch. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/sb480ts-material-bucket-kit/
8. 6-Way Blade for Serious Grading Applications
The SWB54 six-way blade is delivered to you fully assembled on your MAGNATRAC MH8500. The cutting edge is heat-treated for strength and durability when grading driveways or making berms. This blade can be rotated 25-degrees in two directions, and you can also tilt it up or down to a magnitude of 9 degrees. The blade is easily removable to switch to loader work and it is mounted to the heavy-duty lower frame of the MH8500, giving you the proper strength to get down to serious grading! https://struckcorp.com/attachments/swb54-six-way-blade/
9. Brush Grapple with 1,000 lbs of Bite
The BG48 Brush Grapple attachment is the tool for you if you intend to execute heavy tasks, such as moving large chunks of cement or moving fallen trees. The solid steel tines (four of them) can clamp with a force of up to 1,000 pounds, so you shouldn’t have any fears that the brush grapple will be overwhelmed by the job. Additionally, you can perform other tasks with the front bucket while the brush grapple is still in place. This is because the grapple kit is retractable, and this saves you from having to keep reinstalling it during a project. https://struckcorp.com/attachments/bg48-brush-grapple-kit/
10. Powerful Hydraulic Auger
You don’t have to slave away in the sun digging post holes by hand, if you have a MAGNATRAC® MH8500 on your property. Get the NH3A hydraulic auger and make light work of that task. You don’t have to remove your backhoe or bucket loader in order to install this attachment. The NH3A is installed quickly and easily at the front of the track loader off of the SH44 Speed Hitch.
As you can see, the MAGNATRAC® MH8500 has an almost limitless number of attachments that you can add to it in order to get your projects done.

Alfredo Orellana says
Is it possible to get a jack hammer from Struck?
Great question. If this is the type that you are referring to > Hydraulic Breaker , then that would be more of a 3rd party type skid steer attachment that would fit our equipment. We would not make the concrete breaker, but we do make the equipment to work with it. Please call us at 1-877-828-8323 for more information.
JOHN MCNAUGHTON says
Do you have an attachment plate that will allow the breaker to be mounted to the backhoe? I have some concrete walls that need to be hammered,
Hi John. Great question. At this time we do not. We would advise to use the SH44 Speed Hitch attachments only off the front of the loader.

i want to do some forest shredder mulcher work on my pine tree plantation. do you anything that can accomplish this.
Hi Jesse, great question. There are many 3rd party attachments that will work with both the MH4900 or the MH8500. I would call us at 1-877-828-8323 to confirm the attachment that you are looking at will work with our machines. Here is a link to some third party attachments. > http://www.erskineattachments.com/skid-steer-attachments
Please keep in mind that the MH8500 has about 15 GPM to use for attachments and the MH4900 outputs approx. 10 GPM.
