Adams Motor Grader Model #10 Serial #1

This grader had been in my family for most if its life and I just purchased back last weekend. I've been working on getting it for a couple years. After my grandpa passed away, my step-grandma had sold it to a guy that used to work for him. Since then, that man has also passed away and his boys don't want to restore it. They have always promised it back to the family (me) if they ever parted with it.

Adams introduced its first self-propelled road grader in 1928, know as the No. 10; the same year Cat bought out Russell. So, I'm assuming this was built in 28, since it has Serial #1. I'm not sure if you can read the serial number from the picture. It might be the oldest motor grader in existence, if that's any big deal. Before then, they were horse-drawn.

Different model No. 10's had different engines; this one has the most common one, a McCormick Deering 10-20. And, I happen to have a descent 10-20 and trans to throw in it. It was actually a common multi-purpose engine for quite a few years.

Mud - I got your back. Don't worry about any bumps in the terrain next year. I'm comin' through !!!

Thats the kinda stuff that makes a old farm boy feel like a little kid again. The family on dads side always had old stuff(never that nice) laying around the farm, wed climb on that shit for hours and pretend that we were dozing,planting, making tank traps, just normal boy shit. Yes CONGRATS on gettn her back into the family. Please post restore pics for sure!!

Right now I'm taking a class on the History of American Technology, I just might have to ask my prof how much he knows about road construction.

It's always cool to see what people find or in this case had originally in their family. Congrats on getting it back.

That's pretty damn cool. Not sure what you'll do with it when it's done, but fuck it - it has an engine.

...probably very little. Just ask Gerbil. Gerbil knows about road construction, because he's been to Gravel College in South Dakota.

Danger, if the terrain gets a little squirrely when driving the grader will you jump off that too?
