It looks like a JD blade sitting under it. The way it's braced across the bottom and the skid shoe and mount look identical to the way a JD blade is made.

I believe they call that the Roth Bes-ro. There was one at the show in Plain City last weekend.

Never heard of that, but I bet one of those would be great on a gravel road!

Roth Industries was in Alma, Michigan and began selling small tractors in the mid 1940s. They made BesRo riding tractors, Garden King walk-behind tractors, and several farm-related types of equipment.

At the least, there was a model R BesRo, a mode G andl W Garden King.

That's a neat looking grader.  I like it.  I'm also a big fan of the Roths Country Boy garden tractor - one of my favourites.  Someday I'll find one ....
