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.

JRB Rolls Out Its Newly Redesigned, Heavy-Duty Construction Utility Forks

Paladin Attachments has introduced the new, updated version of its 200-500 class JRB Construction Utility Forks. Redesigned to incorporate feedback from customers, as well as engineering design enhancements, the updated models include a lowered top cross tube for increased visibility and a larger 3-inch-diameter tube for added strength. The new design features an improved center of gravity for better load management. A single hanger is featured on the 60-inch-wide frame for increased visibility and reduced weight. Drop-forged tines provide increased sturdiness and reduce material movement while it is being transported over uneven terrain. Wheel loaders may be turned into versatile heavy-duty forklifts to safely transport large loads of construction-related materials such as pallets and pipes. To complete the size ranges covered, Paladin continues to offer its classic 100 and 600-900 models.

JRB Construction Utility Forks are compatible with JRB’s Quick Hitch Mount and other industry quick coupler systems that can maximize the utilization of your wheel loader and reduce the time it takes to switch out attachments. Pin-On Mounts are available if needed. Load capacities are rated beyond wheel loader lift capacities and are based on a 24-inch load center. 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. Special order carriage widths and tine lengths are available upon request. JRB Construction Utility Forks are designed with carriage widths ranging from 60 inches to 106 inches. Tine lengths range from 48 inches to 96 inches and tines are available in sizes ranging from 2 inches by 4 inches to 4 inches by 8 inches.
