A grader has a long blade used to create a flat surface. Normally, the engine and cab sit above two rear axles, with a third axle at the front of the vehicle, with the blade between them.
For civil engineering projects, the grader comes in to “finish grade”. This is done after the “rough grading” has been completed by the heavier machines, such as scrapers and bulldozers.
Graders are also often used to construct and maintain dirt and gravel roads. When tarred roads are being constructed, graders are used to prepare a wide, flat surface before the asphalt is placed.
Before large buildings are constructed, graders are also used to finish grade.
These machines are also surprisingly versatile, being able to create inclined surfaces if desired.
