Extending the Pole length increases clearance between the tractor and Front Section on tight turns. And all Ashland Pole hitches are made by inserting a steel thrust block into the neck of a steel, 'C' shaped plate. The yoke system and thrust collar are then placed in their correct positions to be welded 360 degrees around. This design gives Ashland scrapers a full range of motion from the hitch and maximum potential pull-through to the back side of the Pole or the spindle base plate.
The new Control Ball & Socket System creates a perfect link between Gooseneck and Dolly-Pole. After 60 years of Ashland's cast socket halves, we have developed an adjustable socket system. Machined from a solid billet of steel, it guarantees a precision fit at all times while improving the greasing characteristics of the system. As the joint between the ball & socket begins to wear, simply remove shims as needed to tighten the fit on the 4.5? ball.
With a long paneled Gooseneck design, the 140XL2 has a greater range of motion for the scrapers dolly wheels to articulate and adapt to harsh site conditions. The longer Front Section positions the dolly wheels further away from the 'fall zone' (77' away), so the wheels do not interfere with the machines ejection process. All supported by industrial welded 5? x 16? vertically mounted lift cylinders.
Round structures, such as the heavy wall pipe that Ashland uses in its Front Section, handle torsional loads (twisting loads) much better than square or rectangle tubing. With rounded pipe, the stress of your load is displaced around the entire circumference of the structure ' with any other style, stress is amplified in the corners and seams. Concentrated stress can cause the tubing to fail in these areas, making our Front Section pipe...
