Interesting old wreck

Found this thing in my travels the other day . Appears to be some kind of old grader . Any ideas about it . Wonder how old it might be ?

Not sure how old but they pulled them that I saw with tractors and horses. I've seen that but don't remember where. for age looks in good shape.

Re: Interesting old wreck

I'm going to guess that one could be teens or even twenties.

It is a nice one with tilt on the blade and the back wheels appear to have tilt also.

They were made by a lot of different companies including such notables as Cat, AC and Galion.

There are still a few in service mostly out west maintaining ranch roads.

Here is one on eBay--I don't expect that one to sell at that price.




Treat people as if they're what they ought to be & you help them become what they can be.

I work for an excavating co and we have one out in front of our shop. Very cool.

Re: Interesting old wreck

Nice picture! That would make a good HDR photo. Do you do any HDR photography?
