Motor graders, sometimes called road graders or simply graders, are heavy equipment used in several industries. When you decide to grade or level a surface, you will likely need to use a motor grader. These machines have three axles and an engine, and they use blades to complete the job.
Several industries make use of motor graders, including:
Motor graders are useful tools in such a variety of industries because they are compatible with numerous attachments. Here are the various motor grader attachments and which jobs each one will work for:
Ripper attachments break into a solid area and loosen the dirt or soil. You can use a ripper attachment to prepare a site for the grading or leveling process, and it is also helpful for clearing land in mining applications.
Snow wings come in either masted or mastless forms. Use snow wings to easily clear snow on roadways. These attachments work in high- or low-speed applications.
The v-plow is a specific type of snowplow. It's a large size with two pieces coming together in the shape of a "V." You can use this attachment for areas with heavy snow that is difficult to clear with other attachments. The V shape allows the plow to push snow far on both sides.
Tire chains are helpful for gaining traction. They are especially useful during the winter months when a motor grader could experience sliding and poor traction.
A straight front blade is one of the most versatile attachments for a motor grader. You can use a straight blade for everything from snow removal to leveling and dozing. Straight front blades come in multiple sizes to match your application.
You could also attach a hydraulic broom to the front of your motor grader. These tools work well for jobs where you need to remove large, loose materials, such as rocks or debris.
