Pull grader built from old graders

CW Enterprises offers a grading option for large construction sites and road building. The Pull Grader is built from older motor graders. The old graders get stripped down, rebuilt, and reworked into a pull type design. The Pull Grader was originally designed for agricultural use, including drainage and levelling. The weight of the unit and its ability to penetrate the soil in tough conditions also make it very useful on the construction site. The Pull Grader can be pulled with virtually any power unit however 250-hp to 400-hp 4WD Ag tractors seem to be the best fit. 

There are some definite advantages to the pull type design. With the added length of the grader they do an excellent job of levelling and also work well in soft and wet soil. Another reason they work so well is there is a lot more horsepower and traction for pulling the grader through tough spots where a motor grader would spin out. The company says you can move the same amount of dirt with a 25,000-pound Pull Grader as you would a 40,000-pound motor grader. CW Enterprises also custom conversions as well. The standard pull grader is 34 feet long, weighs 22,000 to 25,000 pounds, has a 14-foot moldboard, 14 x 24 rear tires, and requires four hydraulic remotes.

Turning Up The Volume: Rotating Shear and Game-Changing Serrated Blades

Operating just south of Dallas out of Waxahachie, Texas, hlh&r Metals is a scrap metal recycler that deals mainly in ferrous, with a focus on heavy-melt materials. The company provides containerized collection service to scrap yards and industrial sites located within an 80-mile radius from their yard, using dumpsters and a fleet of roll-off trucks, along with roll-off and end-dump trailers. Materials are brought to the yard, sorted, cleaned, processed and blended for local steel mills and foundries who buy 100 percent of the company’s inventory each month. Hlh&r also buys a significant amount of “nuisance-grade” scrap (rebar-containing materials sourced mainly from crushing and demolition projects).

“We call it nuisance-grade simply because it is difficult to effectively process. Most people use linkage shears to process this kind of material, or they’re using a thick stationary shear,” explains Hugh Taylor, hlh&r’s founder and owner. “The issue is that it destroys shear blades extremely quickly, compared to other materials. With rebar, you’re lucky if you’re getting 40-50 hours of processing out of a set of blades.”

The forks are available with manually adjustable tines or hydraulically actuated tines for side-to-side adjustments from the cab. Optional hydraulic side shift allows for precise material placement.
