Fuel Savings & Universal Fit

The BluSteel system offers optimal efficiency and savings. BluSteel blades are a universal fit for all graders and conditions. The cutting edges are operated at an angle with hardened blades to reduce the RPMs. This means huge fuel savings, reduced tire and hydraulics wear, and less operator fatigue. Some of our customers have cut fuel costs by 40%.

Blade Hardness & Long Life

BluSteel blades are extremely durable with an extended wear life. The cutting edges are made of up to 600 brinell hardened steel, which is much higher than standard steel (420 brinell). This higher quality steel will increase the typical wear life of your blade and will also make it much easier to operate them at maximum cutting efficiency.

Quick Change & Time Savings

Every type of blade has its job and the beauty with the BluSteel grading system is that you can quickly change between them when you need a different application. The BluSteel cutting edges are easily mounted and adjusted on the roadside with only minimal hand tools required. Plus, easy changes means less down time.

 

Customer Testimonial

“From an operators standpoint conditions are always changing and with the Borox blue steel you have the ability to adapt to different conditions by switching between different cutting-edge styles and thicknesses easily. From a shop foreman standpoint less down pressure to do the job means less wear and tear on the machine, which translates to savings in the long run!”

How does the BluSteel system work in different road conditions?

We offer many different styles of blades to combat whatever type of road/work situation you encounter. Naturally, the BluSteel system works great with gravel roads, sandy soil, and other easily maintained roads. But what about other conditions?

  • Washboards & Potholes – The BluSteel system works to fix washboard roads and potholes instead of just filling them in. The strong BluSteel blades cut to remove imperfections while leaving a surface with improved grooves and traction. This also allows salt and sand to remain in place for longer effectiveness.
  • Vegetation & Plant Growth – The BX500 does a great job of breaking up vegetation as it is processed through the holes of the blades. The BX500 style cutting edge also mixes plant growth into the road-base. Plus, the rotation and flow of materials on the blades allows loose vegetation to blow off instead of leaving huge clops of materials.
  • Rough & Hard Roads – Rough and hard roads are tough on every grading blade. The thing to consider here is that BluSteel blades offer the ability to improve the road by being able to cut and rotate the material you do have. There is no blade that will be an overnight “infomercial wow” effect, but over time the road will continue to get better and bring up more material. It is also worth noting, as your road gradually improves your edges will start lasting longer as well.
  • Ditching – When working with ditching it is time to switch to the thinnest BluSteel flat blade. This blade is perfect for ditching. The short blade widths and the thin flat blade will help you to avoid snapping or bending while managing ditches.

Note: You also have to option to use two different styles of blade at the same time. That means you can use a different blade on a ditch or vegetation side.

Road Grading Questions & Discussion

Below are some of the most popular questions about the BluSteel Grader System.

How does BluSteel save fuel?

Fuel economy is dependent on RPM. The more work a machine has to do the higher the RPM’s necessary to do that work. Using BluSteel cutting edges allows you to cut or maintain your roads at lower RPM’s. This results in lower fuel consumption. Some of our customers have even cut fuel costs by 40%!

Fuel savings and lower RPMs come from two aspects of the system. First, always having a sharp edge makes the cutting easier. BX500 blades, when run correctly negative (15-20 degree angle), will always maintain a sharp edge. This will make it easier to cut requiring less work and fewer RPM’s which saves fuel. Second, the thickness of the BluSteel blades is easier to work with and slices through the ground with fewer RPMs. The BX500 is 1/2″ thick, which is ¼” thinner than the standard blade. The combination of a sharp, thin blade leads to less machine output required for the same project. This lowers your RPM and saves a lot of fuel.

How do BluSteel blades wear?

The BluSteel Grading system solves the problem of uneven blade wear. The magic of BluSteel is that you can run it back, keeping the edge sharp. Plus, the ability to rotate blades helps maintain a straight edge so the operator can cut equally and maintain a slope.

Instead of having a 7′ or 8′ blade that is uneven you have a 3′ or 4′ blade. These shorter blades can be rotated inside out, flipped over, or inverted to “play” your wear. That means instead of torching away your dollars you can quickly rotate the blade to evenly wear and keep a straight edge. Finally, the hardness of the blade is the cherry on top that provides longer use before the steel wear warrants replacement compared to conventional edges.

How do you mount, install, & change BluSteel blades?

The system is meant to give you unmatched versatility and keep the grader out on the road working rather than sitting in the shop getting the blade switched. No air tools are required, limited downtime, and there is no more deadheading back to shop to change a blade. For helpful tips on how to mount and install your BluSteel blades, download this quick guide.

Most of the Borox BluSteel products are based on the Scandinavian system with wedge/wedge bolt and mounting adaptor plate in combination with efficient blades. The blades all fit onto the same mounting board system. The adaptor plate is bolted to the moldboard and the plow blades are secured with a wedge and wedge bolt. Thanks to the adapter plate you can quickly and easily change new plow blades and/or flip over existing blades – all you need is a powerful hammer.

Operators that roll their blades out and over are best suited for the BluSteel system because it basically creates a “table”. Then you can easily hit the wedges out, rotate your blades, set the blades down flat, and re-enter the wedges. Plus, the BluSteel system is designed with 3’ or 4’ width blades so you can carry a different style of blades on the machine with you.
