What are motor graders?


Motor graders are multipurpose construction machines that flatten out surfaces during grading projects and road construction works. Used to create a flat surface where the asphalt needs to be placed, motor graders are commonly used in mining sites to perform fine grading.


Various types of equipment for shipping and hauling


Construction machinery


  • Paving equipment such as asphalt rollers, motor scrapers, and motor grader transport.

  • Earth-moving equipment and digging machinery include trenchers, excavators, dozers, dump trucks, and backhoes.

  • Mining equipment includes articulated trucks, gigantic screeners, conveyor systems, rock plants, and drilling gear.


Agricultural machinery


  • Self-propelled farming equipment and motorized machinery such as cotton pickers, combines, and windrowers.

  • Planting, tilling, and harvesting equipment such as plows, seeders, spreaders, and motorized sprayers.

  • Hay-making equipment such as hay rakes, tedders, mowers, and balers.


Other machinery


  • Industrial equipment includes boilers, compressors, concrete pilings, engines, kilns, pumps, lathes, presses, turbines, and machine tools.

  • Military vehicles include armored, combat support, refuelers, tanks, tactical, utility, and cargo trucks.


Factors for shipping and transporting


  • Choosing the right trailer

One important decision is the choice of trailer depending on your load. If you are shipping a super load, you may need beam trailers for extra support, steerable dollies for balancing tight turns and spaces, and platform trailers for spreading your load over two lanes of traffic. 


Smaller pieces of industrial or farm equipment can be shipped using flatbed trailers, larger pieces of industrial or farm equipment can be shipped using step-deck trailers, and even larger machinery can be shipped using RGN trailers.


  • Route planning

You need to determine which type of road can withstand the weight of your shipment and choose the route with minimal traffic congestion. Route planning is a necessity for transporting equipment from and to job sites.


  • Load flagging

Every state has its own set of rules and regulations regarding the transport of heavy loads. You may need to acquire the necessary permit and fill out the concerned paperwork to avoid penalties.


  • Bridge and tunnel surveys

Another important factor to consider while shipping heavy loads is avoiding bridges and tunnels that are too low or too small. This is one key factor that requires attention while transporting a motor grader.
