Straight Obstacle Blade
The Straight Obstacle Blade (SOB) is a light weight Combat Dozer Blade which is strong and robust and enables vehicles to rapidly clear rubble and other obstacles, creating a clear route for following operations.
The product is battle proven and is in service with, amongst others, the U.S. Army and the Spanish Army.
The SOB is compact and is designed to retain the gravity close to the vehicle structure. Made of high tensile low carbon steel, the SOB is capable of withstanding the loads generated during light dozing tasks. An extensions fitted to the top of the blade prevents soil from spilling over and accumulating on the vehicle.
The SOB can be fitted using a Pearson Engineering interface kit which allows the task equipment to be quickly and easily interchanged and jettisoned increasing the operational capability of the host vehicle.
