Another Motorgrader
3 Attachment(s)
I have been wanting to build a motor grader for a few years and just never seemed to get started on it. Looking at Frank's finally got me interested again and I have started building one also. You will notice more than than a few similarities because I wanted mine to look like a miniature motor grader as well. No need to reinvent the wheel. One notable difference you can see is the addition of a powered front axle as well. The front axle is from a Ford 1110 4 wheel drive tractor and I plan to power it with a hydraulic motor with an electric clutch to disengage it. It's still early in the project but I am pretty deep into it already.

Not sure why some of the pictures are upside down

First, welcome to OCC.... :Welcome2:

Next, I straightened out your images.

You can use programs like Irfanview to fix your images.

Lastly, it is my understanding, that taking pictures with your phone, should be done horizontally.

Years ago (like 28) I built a rotisserie for car restorations. Came in handy for welding the underside of the goose neck.

Looking good! Will be following in case I need to retrofit some ideas to mine!

Thanks. I’m mounting the hydraulic cylinders but I am not sure how all the control need to be. Not my strong suit.

Nice Rotisserie you have there.

That makes life a little easier when welding stuff like that:biggrin2:

I'm in to follow your build.

I have a question on your plan to
get the front tires pulling the same speed as
the 2 rear hydro's.

Will you use some type of proportioning valve or
a flow control valve?
