This grader is homemade and very nicely designed and built. A friend of mine gave it to me,saying that he would never use it. ( He is not a Sears guy.) The blade itself,is said to be a cutting edge from a dozer blade. It has several angle positions and can be spun all the way around so that you can push or pull with it.

That should last you awhile, that's a actual cutting edge from a grader.

A really nice build.
The reverse is something the older ones at least didnt have, so yours is an improvement.

I went thru the orange 68 Suburban the last couple of days and got it up and running. I put my late model heavy duty 3 point hitch on it with the long handle and hooked up the grader blade. I plan to do a thread in the Sears forum either this evening or in the next few days. I am always amazed at how strong and smooth a good running cast iron Tecky is and at how well they start.
