    Default Here's a thought...

    Have you tried a google search?

    I just typed in Russel A grader and found more than a handful. They may not be all correct, but you'll be the judge of that.

    Click on "Images" on the left side results page. This will return only images, and not web pages.

    I have search Google but the pics i find are a low resolution and not very good quality.
    I would really like a picture similar to the ones found in the russell catalogs and sales brochures.

    Default nice!

    That's a nice looking grader. However if you pull it with a 75 for very long and dig just a little deep, you will break the hitch! I was at the show and just happened to be going by on the tram and got this pic.

    Well the tongue should not be bent in the arch it is, due to someone elses operator error, I went over a small ridge and thats when it broke, the metal was all rusty where it was cracked long ago.

    If you zoom in on the hictch you can see that the ring is bent up and the tongue is bent in an arch, when the front of the tractor went down after crossing a ridge the ring snapped off. When the HCEA restored this grader they forgot to fix the most obvious.

    I don't think this is what you are looking for, but thought I would show my little grader. My father rescued it from a fence row several years ago. Plans are to restore it when I can find the time.
