help in turning the grader around on a construction
project. Figure 10-20 shows a simple technique to turn
the grader around.
With the wheels leaned in the
direction of the turn (A), back across the ditch (B), and
then complete the turn (C). By keeping the front wheels
on the roadway and leaning the wheels in the direction
of the turn, you can make the grader turn with ease.
NOTE: Always back across the ditch and leave the
front wheels on the roadway.
The blade pitch adjustment is a working tool that
supports the cutting action of the blade and is
hydraulically controlled by a lever in the operators cab.
Figure 10-21 shows the different blade pitch
