    Default Serial #

    Bruce, there is no serial # to be found on the machine. Both myself, Erik and the former owner have looked. So it is just a guess. Erik was hoping some of the casting #s might help.

    There is a book...Russell Graders Photo Archive...by P.A. Letourneau...available on e-bay and other book sources...that has specs and information on Russell Graders...

    There are no specs nor photos of the Hi-Way Patrol in the book.

    Russell Hi-Way Patrol No. 2

    The book shows the following on Serial Nos.

    H-2001 to H-3500...Hi-Way Patrol...1920 to 1922... Location of Number Plate, Cross Channel Under Seat
    H-3501 to H4375...Hi-Way Patrol...1922-1923...Location of Number Plate, Cross Channel Under Seat
    H-4376 to H-9275...Hi-Way Patrol No. 2...1923 to 1926...
    Location of Number Plate, Main Frame, Right Side
    H-9276 to H-10875...Hi-Way Patrol No. 2...1927 TO 1929...
    Location of Number Plate, Main Frame, Right Side

    In regards to the Number Plate...It is possible that it was removed for a "souvenir", or sold as an antique object... They show up on e-bay occasionally...

    This should be enough info to work with...Came straight from the Russel Graders Book...No Parts Manual available...
    I wonder if the Nebraska Library might have that info...or maybe through the Historical Construction Equipment Association...

    Respy, CarlsCAT
