That is a really nice moc.   That is the first road grader I've seen that looks to have all the functionality of the real one.   Nice job on the overall look too.   :thumbup:

This is really cool I love all the functions and it looks good too.

I always wonder why Technic don't make a road grader for an official set.

I tried my hand at making one last year using the set 8265. It was my 1st attempt at a moc. It was ok, But not great, turned out a bit clumsy.  :classic:
