Very nice grader. Amazing how early the dirt season came this year isn't it? We actually started some rough grading back in February and were paving by St. Patricks day. Strange year for sure. Good luck with that new piece and hopefully you can keep it busy.

Hey guys thanks for the comments. Its a very nice machince, a little odd getting used to the joystick controls, but the cab is nice and i can actually operate it with the doors shut to keep the cab clean and myself cool. The other grader that this replaced is a 2004 12 H with a 12' blade which the company still owns. Our asphalt plant is finally running so i hope this will be a good year. Mercer me. looks like a old one but in good shape. I will grab some new pics on tuesday of the cab. Matt

We have one like that at work but ours might be a bit older. It only gets out when we are milling city streets since its been mainly used to scrape curbs. We've nicknamed it the "gradersaurus" since its older than most of us who work there. Hahaha

It's actually in pretty rough shape and they put more money into than it's worth.
