    Default Homemade Road Grader

    I've hung around here for a long time. I visit every once in awhile and I thought I would post some of our road grader build pictures. We have been using it to maintain a 1/4 mile long roadway for the last couple of years and I really like it. It is a scrap pile build so you may see the John Deere rotary hoe parts and the Allis Chalmers plow parts... ha, some paddle wheel scrap as well. Anyway here are some build photos.

    Sweet..!! A man after my own heart, with the scrap pile build..!! What a lot of people see as "junk", is pieces/parts for a project such as this...

    Don't Ya' love it when someone asks "Where did you get that..??" And you point towards the shop... I guess I inheireted from my pappy, the "gift" to see, just not what it is, but what it can be.
