 785 motor grader

According to LeeBoy, its 785 motor grader, weighing in at 25,300 pounds, fills a void in the market between smaller and larger graders. It features an articulated frame and a 17 foot-4 inch wheelbase. The frame has 40 degrees of total articulation from behind the cab. The grader uses a 130-hp Cummins diesel engine, a six-speed powershift transmission and rear wheels that are gear driven by a tandem differential. The 12-foot moldboard—with 50 inches of side shift, right or left—features 32 degrees of forward pitch and bank-cut-angle capabilities of 90 degrees or more.
