KBR 860

Knox Kershaw introduced the latest version of its compact, ‘contractor grade’, ballast regulator, the KBR 860.

The KBR 860 Ballast Regulator has been updated from previous models to a larger, 14 foot wheelbase, which allows it to accommodate a more spacious cab with greater visibility, a side mount A / C, optional joystick control and power transmission, while maintaining an optimum length to facilitate loading and hauling to the work site. The broom has also been updated with a new reel design which improves sweeping around fasteners. The machine continues to come equipped with a one pass type plow with bolt-on blades, reversible side wings, and a broom attachment.

The KBR 860 can also be equipped for snow removal with the optional addition of snow wings with a reach of 13ft from the track center, a four season plow that features bolt on curls, and a broom with an auger and blower attachment. The machine with snow options weighs in at 49,000lbs and can be fitted with a manual or power shift transmission, manual or joystick controls, cold weather options, and jump seat.
