Grader Hire Rates Guide

Many earthmoving and construction jobs will need a grader on site. Graders are used for civil engineering projects to precisely refine surface levels that a scraper, excavator or dozer has “rough graded”.

Graders are fitted with a long movable blade used to create flat surfaces. Our grader hire suppliers categorise their graders by blade width, from less than 10ft, to 12ft, 14ft, 16ft, and right up to 24ft.
