Grader Blades


Tractor & Grader Supplies Offers a Wide Range of Quality Grader Blades to the Market

In the construction and mining industry, graders, excavators and similar items of equipment must be fitted with the right blades for their specific functions. Keeping these blades in good condition is essential to your productivity levels and, of course, the longevity of your equipment and machinery.

Different grader blades are required for different applications and as a result, one must always ensure that the correct blades are bought and that there is a selection available. Grader blades are used on ground engaging equipment with the objective of levelling surfaces, scraping through snow / ice or excavating hard earth. What types of grader blades are required for each type of project? Consider the following:

• Grader blades with smooth edges – these blades are best used for light jobs, such as moving gravel or loose earth.

• Grader blades with tough abrasive edges – these blades are best used in scenarios where rough terrain, rock and hard ground must be worked with.

A large part of being able to choose the right grader blades for the application and task will depend on your understanding of the surface to be worked with and the pressures / abrasiveness associated with such terrains. Your chosen grader blade must be able to cut through obstacles with obvious ease. Each blade on the market will come with its limitations and capabilities, so it is important to investigate each option before making your final decision.

Things to consider when choosing grader blades to invest in:

• How convex are the blades?
• What is the depth of the scoop?
• How does the blade relate to the size and strength of the vehicle that will propel it?
• How hard is the ground / earth / material that you are working with?
• Does the blade come with a reinforced lip to save on maintenance efforts and costs?

While there are many types and sizes of grader blades on the market, it is advised that you invest in wear resistant blades to ensure that they can better handle the impacts and loads that they work with. Regular maintenance checks should also be carried out to ensure that blades are not damaged, worn or attached at the incorrect angle. All of these can affect the time it takes to complete a project and can also cause serious further damage to your equipment if not rectified as soon as possible.
