Get to know the Motor Grader, its functions and how it works  
Motor Graders are heavy mining equipment with long blades that are used for a perfect leveling process. Generally, graders have three tire axles. The engine and cabin are above the rear axle. At one end of the vehicle there is a third axle right at the front end of the vehicle, as well as a blade in between.

Grader Function
What is Grader function?
This heavy equipment is often used to level and repair the surface of the land. The main function of a grader is to make the ground surface flat or form a certain slope to meet the requirements generally widely used in the construction and agricultural sectors. Here are some other functions:

1. To level uneven or uneven ground surfaces. This can be done by using a grader blade which can be adjusted according to the required soil surface.
2. Helps create a ground surface with the required slope. This slope can be used to create drainage or direct the flow of water from the ground surface.
3. To dig or reduce the soil in an area. This is useful for creating appropriate heights or for removing unnecessary soil.
4. Used to make roads. This can be done by taking soil from the surrounding area and leveling the road surface using a knife.
5. Clean the ground surface of vegetation or other unwanted material.

Overall, this heavy equipment is very useful in helping work in the construction industry, agriculture and other jobs that require a flat and clean ground surface. Not only that, the use of motor graders themselves is also often found in mining areas as a support tool used to clean roads on transportation routes, which will often be passed by mining dump trucks. The importance of cleaning transportation routes in mining areas to make it easier for mining truck routes to remain clean and clean. safety to minimize boulder spills, so that this heavy equipment can be seen every few kilometers to keep the route clean.

Motor Grader Components
The following is an explanation of several main components in motor grader heavy equipment:
1. Blade or Knife
The blade is one of the main components of a motor grader, its function is to repair and smooth ground surfaces such as roads, airports, and others. The blade can be rotated up to 360 degrees and adjusted in various angles to achieve the desired results. Meanwhile, blades generally consist of three types, namely:

1.Front blade:
The front blade is the front blade on a motor grader which functions to lift and level materials such as soil, sand, gravel and asphalt.
The front blade is usually installed at the front of the motor grader and can be adjusted in height and tilt according to needs.
2.Mouldboard / Mid-Mount Blade:
The moldboard or center blade is the middle blade on the motor grader which is located under the motor grader body or frame. The moldboard functions to help lift and level the material between the two front and rear blades. The height and slope of the moldboard can be adjusted to produce a flat ground surface that suits your needs.

Several types of blades on motor graders can usually be equipped with attachments or other accessories, such as wing blades, extension blades and scarifiers, to improve performance and efficiency in carrying out lifting, leveling and compacting material. One motor grader that is often found in construction and agricultural work areas is the Shantui Motor Grader.

Shantui Motor Graders
As a global heavy equipment manufacturer, Shantui is one of the brands that produces Motor Graders. Shantui Motor graders generally have the following components,
blade lift cylinder, drawbar lift cylinder, cab, rear wheel, ripper, articular, cylinder, blade, front wheel, and head lamp. Several types and types of Motor Grader series from Shantui products include SG14, SG21 and SG27, where these three products are agented by the Kobexindo Group.

Shantui motor graders offer world-class products that have many advantages, not only being able to level the ground surface, but also being able to strip the soil and make holes, often used for the road construction process. Motor graders can move flexibly, save energy and are reliable. Several advantages of the Shantui Motor Grader include that based on the model or type, it is equipped with attachments that can be applied, such as a large blade that can cover a wide area. Another advantage is having dual transmission system where the operator can choose between manual transmission for control at low speeds when finishing. As well as the ease of application on the motor grader for machine system control, it is easy to install and apply.
