    Thanks for you ongoing posts about world graders.

    That little Schwab machine is original thinking way out side the box. . . what a perfect machine for road and track maintenance and you can even suck it all together and tote behind a pickup!

    Cheers.

    If I can get my son to help me post a pic or two, I'll show you my Hefty G grader, a little machine that is handier than a pocket in a shirt!

    We have a Mauldin. It has a nicer cab than the Puckett, and Alitec, but it is not as well built. They narrowed in the lift cylinders on the blade, and I find it hard to keep it on the ground. Give me my old Puckett any day.

    Wow, 11 yo thread...

    Fiat graders were a continuation of the allis D ancestor. I think the M-65 is still being made somewhere...
