1540 Blade


The 1540 blade (2WD, 190 PTO HP tractors max.) is available in widths of 8′ and 10′ and features a heavy-duty CAT 2-3 three-point hitch and quick-hitch. The 10′ model is rated for up to 160 PTO HP wheel-type tractors. The 1540 blade is available with either hydraulic or manual mainframe swing, moldboard angle, and moldboard tilt. The 1540 blade can be offset a maximum of 37″ for working outside the dual wheels on larger horsepower tractors. The 4″ diameter solid steel kingpin, boxed section reinforced 1/2″ x 18″ moldboard, and the superior strength of the mainframe ensure dependability. The bolt-on gauge wheels are an excellent feature in helping to control the cutting depth. This is especially critical when trying to leave a smooth finish. Skid shoes, quick-tach end plates, and single or dual gauge wheels are optional equipment to help make the 1540 a more versatile tool.

Every Rhino rear blade features a precision-formed moldboard with the exact curvature needed to achieve maximum penetration. The constant curvature and the perfect fit of the replaceable cutting edge allows Rhino blades to cut and roll the material rather than dragging, saving time, horsepower, and fuel. Another important feature not found on most competitive blades is the cutting edge which extends out past the end of the moldboard slightly, reducing the rate of wear on the moldboard.

Every Rhino big blade features a solid steel cold rolled kingpin, heavy-duty three-point hitch, massive mainframe, and reinforced moldboard for superior strength and durability. All pivot points are designed and built to exacting tolerances for a tight fit, long wear, and dependable service. Multiple manual adjustment settings and infinite hydraulic settings make Rhino blades one of the easiest rear blades to operate.
