A grader is a relatively large vehicle with an elongated blade between the front and rear wheels. Graders are an extension of the bulldozer. Whereas bulldozers move, spread and distribute large quantities of soilover a building site, graders take care of the last bit of levelling.This makes them especially suitable for the last precision work, not for large earthmoving operations.

Specifications graders

Almost all graders have three axles: Two of these axles are on the rear part of the vehicle. The engine and cabin rest on top of these. The third axle is at the front of the vehicle. Between the axles is the elongated blade that is used to level the ground. This blade can be adjusted vertically by means of hydraulic cylinders. The height of the blade depends on the necessary working height.

The bigger the grader and the blade, the more thrust the machine needs. Graders are available with power ratings from 125 to 500 hp.

Work graders

Graders are essential for preparing the subgrade of all kinds of construction projects. These include projects that require a smooth surface, such as roads and paths, railways, airports and golf courses. The grader is therefore also called a 'leveling machine' or 'road grader'

In the Netherlands, it is not often necessary, but graders also function effectively as snow ploughs!
