    Default Antique Road Grader


    Proudly displayed in the front 40 on Green River Rd. It is a Galion and it was pulled either by draft animals or a tractor.

    What neat old piece of equipment. Must be 1920's vintage maybe? I think Gallion is still in business making heavy equipment.

    Glad you liked the grader.

    Galion is now Dresser/Komatsu and they still make graders. There are lots of Galions where I was raised: never saw another brand.

    Great old piece. Thank goodness it hasn't gone for scrap.

    I've seen a pull grader used down Maine behind a team of 4 horses.....moved a lot of dirt, made a lot of noise...... bigger grader than this one.
