Multi Purpose Blade Hinges In The MiddleYou've never seen a grader blade like this new "bend-in-the middle" blade built by Leonard J. Hansen, New Hartford, Iowa.
The 6-ft. wide blade ù it could be built to any width ù has a heavy-duty hinge at center. Each half of the blade is controlled by a hydraulic cylinder. You can angle both sides of the blade forward to make a "scoop" for moving dirt, gravel, snow, etc. Or you can move them both backwards to a point for leveling dirt or scraping manure or snow. You can also angle the entire blade in either direction for grading or use it straight across.
Hansen mounts the blade on a skid steer loader but says it could easily adapt to a tractor 3-pt. or pickup. He's looking for a manufacturer.
