What is the purpose of a motor grader?

LiuGong Motor Graders

Dozers were commonly used for grading in the early days. On the other hand, motor graders were introduced solely for grading purposes due to the need for improved surface finish and to speed up the grading process. Since then, their popularity has skyrocketed.

Motor graders, also known as road graders or graders, are essential pieces of equipment on any construction site. They are typically self-propelled machines with an adjustable blade, three axles, with the engine and cab located above the rear axles at one end of the vehicle and a third axle located at the front end of the vehicle, with the blade in between.

It’s easy to distinguish motor graders by their long adjustable blades. In addition, motor graders are regarded as simple equipment for underground mining. Another feature that distinguishes motor graders is the drive systems, with some equipment employing all-wheel drive, ideal for working in rural areas with unpaved roads.

Motor graders are divided into rigid frame and articulated frame motor graders. The latter is the more commonly used version these days.

Applications for motor graders

Motor graders are versatile construction equipment.

They can be used to smooth out rough surfaces, fine-grade, level soil, and shift small amounts of dirt.

The most common application of motor graders is in road construction and maintenance, with its primary function preparing the topmost layer for laying asphalt on top of it. However, motor graders are also used for debris removal and earth moving. As a result, motor graders ensure that the compactor works efficiently with limited strain.
