O & K F516 Grader working on roads

This grader was used before the arrival of the Volvo G267B which was around 2005. Its one draw back was that it was quite a lightweight machine and when working the angled blade at any depth the machine itself used to crab sideways and it was very difficult to steer it on the intended line. On lighter, dry sites with shallow scraping there was less problems.
