Reasons You Require Tractor Grader Blades

Tractor grader blades are essential for creating flat surfaces. Whether in agriculture or construction, grader blades help remove debris and other items to ensure the land is level and ready for use. Farmers often need this equipment when dealing with uneven surfaces where growing crops is impractical. Burando Hill is a reputable manufacturer and retailer of innovative agricultural gear to enhance your operation.

How to Use Grader Blades

Grader blades are a popular attachment for heavy machinery. Apart from levelling land on a farm, people have used them for grading parking spaces, clearing paths for new roads and removing large obstacles. If you’ve never used a grader, we’ll take you through the points you need to remember.

  • You must take care to set up the blade correctly. Depending on the setting, you may need to adjust the angle of the blade to secure it to the tractor properly. After securing the blade, you’re ready to use it, but exercise caution during operation as misuse can be dangerous.

  • Several grader blade uses exist, some of which we’ve briefly discussed. They’re incredibly versatile, which means you can operate in multiple ways depending on the application. You can level the ground and prepare it for sowing quickly. The blade can easily remove unwanted items occupying your fields. Some of these objects may be too heavy to move manually, which is where the grader blade comes into its own.

  • Before operating a grader blade, please consider your safety. Read the safety instructions thoroughly and adhere to the instructions. Usually, when using a grader, it’s advisable to wear safety goggles and a face shield to protect you from debris dislodged by the blade.

  • The grader blade has three major parts - the cutting edge, the moldboard, and the scarifier bar. The edge comes into contact with the surface you’re working on, while the moldboard assists in shaping and contouring the land. Additionally, the moldboard keeps debris from spilling over the sides of the blade. Lastly, the scarifier bar can break up any material too hard for the cutting edge to demolish.

  • When selecting a grader blade, you must factor in the length, width, thickness, and hardness. Additionally, you can select if you want a serrated, curved or flat blade. The blade’s length will depend on the tractor, but most require two blades, with the common lengths being 1.8 metres, 2.1 metres and 2.4 metres. The width will determine how fast it wears down. The standard offering is 15 centimetres, while most farmers opt for the 20-centimetre width. The common thickness of the blade is 1.5 centimetres, with 1.9 centimetres offering extra wear material.
