General grader safety
    We explain who is responsible for the operator and
    machine’s safety and list general and site safety rules.
Grader operating techniques
    We explain how to perform all the basic grader     operations safely, list the different operating     techniques; explain what the different engine smoke     colours indicate, why intermittent revving is not desired     and how to start a cold engine.
Transporting the grader
    We explain how to safely load the grader onto a     transporter, what aspects to check for while loading and     off-loading the grader, how to off-load the grader from     the transporter and how to position and secure the     grader on the transporter.
