If you don't get an answer here go on the "HCEA" site as there are a lot of grater people there.

Default Adams Leaning Wheel Grader

I have this Adams Leaning Wheel Grader that we've had for years. lt is a little team grader that was used in our area. I finally pulled it out of the woods where it had sat for several years. Dad repainted it about 20 years ago and then it went to the woods, for what ever reason.
Anyway, I have been trying to find some information on the grader. After reading all the posts I can find here, and through the internet, I still don't know much about it, except being built by Adams, of Indy.
It has a 6 foot blade, a wheel base of 9 feet, rear tires are 4'" x 30" and fronts are 4" x 24" It appears to be 99% intact, however; the locking pin for the rotation of the blade is missing. It seems to have been well used as all the gearing and wheels are extremely worn. Right now it is yard art.
The model/serial tag is missing. I would like to know the approximate year this little puppy was made. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Tom

The grader was built around 1920. I do not know how long they built them for.
