  1. Grader

    A grader, also commonly referred to as a road grader, a blade, a maintainer, or a motor grader, is a construction machine with a long blade used to create a flat surface. Typical models have three axles, with the engine and cab situated above the rear axles at one end of the vehicle and a third axle at the front end of the vehicle, with the blade in between. In certain countries, for example in Finland, almost every grader is equipped with a second blade that is placed in front of the front axle. Some construction personnel refer to the entire machine as "the blade." Capacities range from a blade width of 2.50 to 7.30 m and engines from 93–373 kW. Certain graders can operate multiple attachments, or be used for separate tasks like underground mining. In civil engineering, the grader's purpose is to "finish grade" the "rough grading" performed by heavy equipment or engineering vehicles such as scrapers and bulldozers. Graders are commonly used in the construction and maintenance of dirt roads and gravel roads. In the construction of paved roads they are used to prepare the base course to create a wide flat surface for the asphalt to be placed on. Graders are also used to set native soil foundation pads to finish grade prior to the construction of large buildings.Graders can produce inclined surfaces, to give cant to roads. In some countries they are used to produce drainage ditches with shallow V-shaped cross-sections on either side of highways.

Examples of grader in a Sentence

  1. Christine Carugati:

    What ninth grader knows what they want and what ninth grader, never mind an adult, isn't easily swayed, thinking somebody wants me. It's very intoxicating for any age but for a child especially, so my counsel was to keep all your options open.

  2. Vicki Hoefle:

    And this is where some of the confusion comes in. Allowing your first-grader to fail a spelling test because they did study is much easier for a parent to deal with than allowing your eight-grader to fail science because he chose not to study and will have to repeat the class over the summer.

  3. Joe Walsh:

    The intensive three-week Kinderguardian course introduces specially selected children from 12 to4 years old to pistols, rifles, semiautomatics and a rudimentary knowledge of mortars, in less than a month —less than a month— a first-grader can become a first grenade-er.

  4. Stephanie Donaldson-Pressman:

    It is absolutely shocking to me to find out that particularly kindergarten students (who) are not supposed to have any homework at all ... are getting as much homework as a third-grader is supposed to get, anybody who's tried to keep a 5-year-old at a table doing homework for 25 minutes after school knows what that's like. I mean children don't want to be doing, they want to be out playing, they want to be interacting and that's what they should be doing. That's what's really important.

  5. Nancy Hogshead-Makar:

    It's appalling what these huge differences are. Any fifth-grader can walk into your average high school or college softball baseball facility and say, 'Duh, that's not equal.' the coupling of sexism and sport, having this be an exclusionary practice, is still a strong one.
