What Is A Motor Grader?

John Deere Motor Grader

A motor grader is a form of heavy equipment with a long blade used to create a flat surface during grading. Typical graders have three axles, with the steering wheels in front, followed by the grading blade, then a cab and engine atop tandem rear axles. Some graders also have front wheel drive for improved performance. Some graders have optional rear attachments, such as a ripper, scarifier, or compactor. A blade forward of the front axle may also be added. For snowplowing and some dirt grading operations, a main blade extension can also be mounted. Certain graders can operate multiple attachments, or be designed for specialized tasks like underground mining.

Graders are commonly used in the construction and maintenance of dirt roads and gravel roads. In constructing paved roads, they prepare a wide flat base course for the final road surface. Graders are also used to set native soil or gravel foundation pads to finish grades before the construction of large buildings. Graders can produce canted surfaces for drainage or safety. In some locations, they are used to produce drainage ditches with shallow V-shaped cross-sections on either side of highways.

Steering is via a steering wheel or joystick controlling the angle of the front wheels, but many models also allow frame articulation between the front and rear axles, which allows a smaller turning radius in addition to allowing the operator to adjust the articulation angle to aid in the efficiency of moving material. Other implement functions are typically hydraulically powered and can be directly controlled by levers, or by joystick inputs or electronic switches controlling Electrohydraulic servo valves.

Preparing your Motor Grader for Transport

Tips, Tricks, and Things You Should Know.
John Deere Motor Grader

When loading a motor grader, the driver will most likely be using a ramp or dock if one is available and the type of trailer requires it. They should also chock your wheels and chain up to its designated hard points before driving away with it. VeriTread representatives as well as your hauler driver will be in contact throughout this process while they work together to resolve any issues that may come up during transport.

Motor graders are hauled on trailers that can be modified depending on the dimensions of different machines. A certain number of axles on the trailer may be needed to match local and state road regulations, so it's important to consider this when planning transport routes. Oversize loads might also require special permitting or pilot cars with height poles in order to navigate through tight spaces without clearance issues. Oversize loads are wider than 8.5 feet and require a permit, but they can also be restricted by the height of the machine’s exhaust components. One way to reduce your oversize load is to disassemble the taller pieces of the machine if it makes economical sense to avoid added fees from escorts and permits. Every state is different, so please check with your state government or hire a professional hauler who can take care of these important details for you.

I have worked in the trucking industry for 2 years. Own and Operated my own truck now for about 7 months. Working with Michelle has been the most pleasant experience to date.She is very upbeat, professional and caring. Michelle understands the needs and obstacles of the driver and makes great efforts to reduce the burden. I am retired from another profession and have an supplemental income, so i am not desperate for jobs from brokers and customers that treat the drivers poorly. If this occurs with me, I will not do business with that broker or costumer again. Meaning, I’m very selective with who I do repeat business with… In Michelle’s case I hope to do business with her much more into the future. Excellent customer service.Tom BurnsideRed Dog Hauling and Removal LLCMoses Lake WA

Great service from VeriTread. I found they were very helpful and replied to my emails in a timely manner. Big Thanks to Angie, Christiane, dispatch team and my driver Mohammed. The price was a little on the higher side but worth the piece of mind. absolutely amazing communication.
Timothy M.
Great service and great paining loads. Will definitely look to work with them in the future
Monica A.
Michele K is amazing to work with! She is very knowledgeable about getting machinery/equipment transported. Michele will give you a fair rate quote that will ensure your items moved in a timely manner. A lot of other brokers will get you a low ball quote just to get you hooked and then you find out later that it's not going to work because that rate was way off and no truckers want to move your equipment.
Craig K.
Angela is the best! Easy to work with and responds quickly!
