The MAGNATRAC MH8000 is a compact workhorse designed for light construction work, the rigors of agricultural labor, and even small sawmills! This little machine packs a big punch. With different add-ons and attachments, there is no limit to the configurations you can create, especially when you apply your own ingenuity to your needs!
New MH8000 owner, Ellis realized he wanted some special modifications to his MH8000 Small Bulldozer to help him tackle his unique projects.
Using lintel off of an arched window from one of his jobs, he fashioned a brush guard for the top of the dozer’s blade. Due to the straightforward construction of the MAGNATRAC tractor, he was able to remove the blade with ease.
“I was surprised how easy it was to take the blade off,” Ellis says, “I laid it across the saw horses to do the welding… All welds are 1 pass of 6010 and 2 passes of 7018.”
He fastened the guard at about 15 degrees off of perpendicular from the blade, providing a smooth curve that does not detract from the functionality of the attachment.
In addition to the guard, Ellis made other minor modifications to the attachment. “The little pieces of pipe on the brush guard are sleeves to slide a smaller pipe into,” he says,
Giving him an area to “hold a tool box until I get to where I’m working.” That way he doesn’t have to hold it by hand or tote it along separately as he dries out to the work site. What a great idea, combining the pleasing arch to protect the tractor and provide extra storage space at the same time!
