    Default Fixed a Section of Road Today

    I had a section of road that was getting pretty boney on the right side with the road base exposed on that edge. Just the normal migration of material to the outside of a bend and lots of snow plowing. There was plenty of material on the left side. I made a couple pass with the rear blade angled to move some material from the left side to the center then the center to the right side. After that I put the Land Plane Grading Scraper on for a final grading. Lastly I packed the reworked section of road with my 1 ton.

    You are right. The right tools can make all the difference.
    I see so much negativity on rear blades that I thought I might be able to help show that they are actually an extremely useful and efficient road tool.

    I agree. What I know is that it is difficult to do this with ANY other type of implement.
