Grader hire near you

A grader is a long bladed machine used to flatten surfaces, grade land, scarify layers, and reduce roads to an easy gradient, amongst other activities. These days, graders are often used for road building, road maintenance, spreading, fine grading, earthmoving, clearing brush and debris, and even snow removal. Graders are able to produce both horizontal and inclined surfaces, and depending on the depth, can also be used for the digging of drainage ditches.

Our directory offers a huge volume of qualified grader hire suppliers throughout Australia. These suppliers offer a diverse catalogue of grader blades to suit a variety of projects and operations. Grader hire can be categorised by blade width - below 10ft to 12ft, 14ft, 16ft and larger. One of the larger graders available for hire is the Caterpillar 24M. Our grader hire suppliers also offer different attachments, such as a long blade and three axles on the front, which is ideal for the creation of an even and flat preparation surface or final trim.

What Grader do I need?

Both large and small construction and earthmoving projects will often require a grader. For civil engineering projects, graders are used to precisely refine the surface level that a bulldozer or scraper has rough-graded. Motor graders were traditionally used to maintain roads and flatten surfaces prior to the application of asphalt. Our grader hire suppliers can complete a wide range of detailed earthworks including pad work and camber.

How do Graders work?

Graders evolved from tractors and operate by using a centrally mounted blade that can vary depending on the build. This blade is typically mounted low to allow the vehicle to essentially scrape, grade, or plow the ground beneath it while driving. Depending on the blade installation, the operator is able to adjust the height and impact of the blade to suit the task at hand.

Grader blade types

What blades are there for graders?

Graders are equipped with movable blades and different sized blades. Grader hire suppliers categorise their graders by blade width for various jobs. The blades are mounted onto the grader under the frame with a ring that swivels vertically, adjusting the angle of the blade. This means that the grader can work sideways on sloping banks and pulling ditches.

What is a scarifier blade?

Scarifier blades penetrate gravel, frozen and hard-packed surfaces with less horsepower, passes and down pressure than standard blades. The blades feature individual self-sharpening and rotating tools to ensure they last longer and allow an even cutting height.

What is a dual-carbide planer blade?

Dual-carbide planer blades have two inserts in the edge made of carbide. These blades are ideal for low-impact, highly-abrasive jobs.

What blade thickness do I need for my grader?

Blade edge thickness is an important consideration for grader hire suppliers. Thicker edges are less susceptible to breakage and also wear for longer, however the penetration is less compared to thinner edges. Thicker edges also require more down pressure to cut and penetrate material which can burn more fuel. Using an edge that’s too thin or small can also make it more susceptible to early wear and damage. There are many different materials used that can influence how long a grader blade will last.
