CUTTING EDGES ON BLADE GRADERS

THERE ARE NO STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS OR TEST METHODS FOR THE QUALITY OF GRADER BLADE CUTTING EDGES, AND THE REPLIES TO A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO ALL OF THE STATES INDICATE A CONSIDERABLE RANGE IN PRACTICE. IN VIEW OF THE LARGE SUMS SPENT EACH YEAR ON THIS ITEM BY STATES, COUNTIES AND TOWNS, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT RESEARCH ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIFICATIONS AND METHODS OF TESTS BE CARRIED ON. SUBSTANTIAL SAVINGS FOR BOTH CONSUMERS AND PRODUCERS SHOULD RESULT. SOME INVESTIGATIONS IN THE FIELD AND LABORATORY BY THE MINNESOTA STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT AND THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA ARE REPORTED. APPARATUS USED IN VARIOUS LABORATORIES ARE DESCRIBED, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF PUBLISHED INVESTIGATIONS IS INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
