A CDB(H) has three operating positions; stowed for cross-country travel, deployed for earth-moving operations and float for ground levelling and back-blading operations. A hydraulic lift cylinder stows and deploys the blade.
Hydraulic power is provided by an in-built electrohydraulic power system if a CDB is fitted directly to a vehicle. or from an on-board hydraulic system that can be provided as part of a Pearson Engineering Common Interface System.
A CDB(H) is controlled from a Multipurpose Control Unit (MCU) mounted within easy reach of the vehicle driver.
A CDB(H) can be rapidly attached to, or detached from, the vehicle and interchanged with other Special to Role equipment.
A purpose built Transportation Pallet facilitates both storage and transport and is capable of fitting into either an ISO container or onto a DROPS pallet.
