Motor Graders

If you’re in the construction business, a motor grader is a must have. The motor grader will help you accomplish a smooth, wide, flat surface. While this machine comes in many different types and sizes and has many uses, there are also a variety of attachments that can convert the motor grader into an even more versatile machine. As construction companies are realizing the importance and versatility of motor graders, they are quickly replacing other pieces of equipment.

Use for:

  • Construction and maintenance of dirt and gravel roads

  • Construction of paved roads to prepare the base course to create a wide flat surface where the asphalt will be placed

  • To set native soil foundation pads to finish grade prior to the construction of large buildings

  • To produce inclined surfaces, to give camber to roads

  • Municipal and residential snow removal


  • Articulated Frame Motor Grader; has a hinge in between the front and rear axle, use where small space is available during turning.

  • Rigid Frame Motor Grader; one axle, unable to turn left or right about a point.


  • Angle Blade

  • Lift Groups

  • One Way Plow

  • Snow Wing

  • Straight Blade

  • UV Angle Blade

  • V-Plow

Maintenance Tips:

  • The blade/moldboard; wear and tear on the blades attached to the moldboard is high, especially if the blade is pitched back instead of at a right angle. Because of this, it’s necessary to inspect and replace blades on as frequent as a daily basis. Dependent upon the type of surface being prepared, blades should be checked after every 25-50 hours of operation. The state of the blade will easily affect the state of the moldboard.

  • Blade slide and turntable; should be checked on a monthly basis. To guarantee your motor grader gives you the fine cut you want, be sure there isn’t too much play on the brushings in the slide.

  • Air filters; if dirt is clogging the air filters, they won’t be as effective as they should be and the motor grader will consume more fuel.

  • Scarifiers; though standard on some machines and optional on others, they minimize the work of the moldboard for rough grading. The “teeth” of the scarifier should not wear down to the point of reaching the pocket.

  • Operator station and controls; regularly check the seat belt, floor mat and handles.

  • Tires; monitor tire pressure as it affects the machine’s grade.
