    Default What kind of grader is this??

    Need your help identifying this pull type grader, I have confirmed through Eric it is not any of the following: Caterpillar, Russell, Western Wheeled, Stockland, NS Monroe, CD Edwards, or Adams. The open gear boxes seem to be what has us not knowing.
    Thanks

    That is an oldie with the open worm drive. The only pull Galion I ever saw around here had an enclosed gear box and I think Galion was cast in the box. It would have obviously been a later model than the one shown. Like Rome K/G says it sure kind of looks like a Galion.

    Nate,

    That open gearing would give me fits. One could easily get your coat or gloves wound in there real quick. I can set my clothes on fire just welding so who knows what kind of trouble I could get into running this grader.

    Is Finning taking it in on a trade!
