That looks right. The person that can exert the greatest downward pressure rides on the grader.
That was the reason the road commissioner had a fat wife.
Wonderful picture. Might be one of the few that I have seen a conversion doing work.
I wonder what the two levers are doing on the grader. I wonder if it is for depth of cut.
It's going to take many years before tractors are comfortable as the model T!! Bud.
Chad -- The levers adjust the angle of the dangle on the blades.
Ive seen those graders towed behind horses and tractors.
I think we called them king graders.
They were especially handy for grading muddy roads.
They filled in the ruts and lft the surface flat and smooth to dry in the sun.
My profile closely resembles the director of the king grader. Just discovered another job I seem to be exceptionally well qualified for.
Jay, I don't know how you find so many great photos but I certainly look forward to seeing your posts. Thank you so much for the windows into the past.
