Road Maintenance

  • 3-POINT GRADER

    This light-duty maintenance grader couples directly to the tractor’s three-point linkage, making levelling easy and hassle-free. The basic design allows for all road maintenance operations to be carried out mechanically. The blade can be rotated 360 degrees for pushing and levelling out uneven land. Tilting, rotation and off-centre operation are all included in the grader’s performance ability. The mechanical blade tilt means that chambers or contour lines are easily creatable by this stellar piece of equipment, and it can easily get to hard-to-reach or uneven places.

     

    • Weighted Mouldboard adds additional weight on the cutting edge and increases ground penetration, while preventing the machine from moving around during operation.
    • Mechanical Blade Tilt adjusts the blade from left to right, which easily creates a chamber on the road surface or on contours.
    • Off-Centre Operation allows the blade to work in an off-centre position to work along fence lines or under low-lying branches where tractors cannot pass.
    • 360 Degree Blade Rotation sets the blade to fixed points for the required angle which allows material to move to the desired side of the blade.  Full blade rotation allows the blade to work in the reverse direction to push or level various materials and areas.
    • Depth Control sets the working depth by means or two, rear, depth control skids and also prevents removing too much material.
    • Category I and II Hitch allows the operator to easily switch between bigger and smaller tractors.

    • Weighted Blade Box adds weight to the blade for a deeper surface penetration while allowing the machine to cut into the surface effortlessly regardless of the terrain and surface conditions.
    • Ballasted Wheel Arms add more weight to the blade during operation while allowing for placement of additional weight on one side of the blade when it is required for a deep cut.
    • Perfect hitch, Hitching System allows for a greater degree of movement in all directions between the machine and the tractor.
    • Reversible Cutting Edges comprise of two interchangeable cutting edges. This allows for optimisation of wear on the blades by being able to swop the cutting edges from the left side to the right side when the blade corners have worn round and lose their ability to penetrate
    • Hydraulic Lift and Tilt is controlled by two independently regulated wheels and lift arms that smoothly and effortlessly changes the tilt of the blade during operation while working in uneven terrain with better control for a perfect surface finish
    • Two-Lever Hydraulic Control valve allow the graders to be used on tractors that have only one hydraulic port.  The valve is mounted on the side of the tractor where the operator can reach it and operates the independently controlled wheels to alter the lift and the tilt of the blade.
    • Mechanical Blade Angling sets the angle of the blade through a series of pre-defined holes which locks the blade in to the required angle that ensures the blade angel does not shift during operation.
    • Off-Centre Operation allows the machine to work off-centre of the tractor’s operating centre, which enables the machine to work along fence lines or under low-lying branches and along steep embankments where tractors cannot pass.

  • ROCK PICKERS

    Radium Engineering has joined forces with world-renowned Canadian manufacturers Schulte, importing their Rotary Cutters and now also their Rock Pickers and Windrowers. These rocking picking equipment are ideal for any road maintenance or rocking picking jobs on the farm.

    The Rock Picker gathers up the windrowed stones into a hopper to cart them off the field. The tine bars are spring loaded – when there is a large rock, the spring stretches to absorb the shock loading. These units windrow scattered rock from 5cm to 69cm diameter, into neat rows, greatly reducing the time required to clear rock and debris from the field.

    Fields full of rocks are a menace for all farmers – some might even feel there is a new crop of stones each season. This creates havoc on harrowing, harvesting and mowing machines. Due to the increasing costs of manual labour over the last couple of years, mechanical stone and rock picking has become a critical part of farming. This increases the lifespan of other implements as well as productivity, and helps to save time.

    • Extra-long hitch pole is adjusted from transport to field position by means of a hydraulic cylinder and improves the picking performance by positioning the rock picker grate to the side of the tractor for ease of visual picking.
    • The Flow Control Kit helps to control the reel speed when hydraulic flow cannot be adjusted on the tractor.
    • High performance hydraulic motor is coupled with a crossover relief valve, which cushions shock loads on the reel.
    • Durable tapered T-iron grates eliminate jamming while sifting soil.
    • Large heavy wire batt springs hold batts firmly in place and cushion shock loads.
    • Heavy duty tires provide superior floatation and wear resistance.
    • High trip clearance reel provides superior performance in collecting all rock sizes from 5 to 69cm diameter due       to the three bat reel design.
    • Grated hopper bottom allows soil to be sifted out the rock and returned to the lands.
    • Heavy Duty Grate & Reel is hardened with 450 steel and replicable grate teeth.

    Standard Grate & Reel Good for windrowed rocks or all around stone picking (Grate & reel with 0.95cm thick square batts and 13.97cm spacing)

    Minimum Till Wide Grate & Reel Good for spot picking in fields where you want to reduce trash and residue picked (Grate & reel with 0.95cm thick square batts and no till grate with 8.33cm spacing)

    Heavy Duty Grate & Reel Designed to pick large heavy windrowed rocks (Grate & reel with hardened 450 steel & replaceable grate teeth with 5.39cm spacing)

  • UNI-GRADER

    Creating fire breaks, levelling areas, making new roads and day-to-day maintenance is easy with this practical and versatile grader. The Uni-Grader requires very little maintenance to keep it in good standing, like all Radium equipment. Well thought-out controls and functionality make the machine user-friendly and accurate, although at a slightly smaller scale than the Universal Grader. The Uni-Grader’s reduced size makes it easier to store, and ideal for lower-power tractors, without compromising on top-notch quality and reliable results. The Uni-Grader has off-centre operational capabilities, making it ideal for dirt and gravel terrain where tractors cannot comfortably pass, and the Uni-Grader can easily overcome any surface terrain it is pitted against.

    • Weighted Blade Box adds weight to the blade for a deeper surface penetration while allowing the machine to cut into the surface effortlessly regardless of the terrain and surface conditions.
    • Ballasted Wheel Arms add more weight to the blade during operation while allowing for placement of additional weight on one side of the blade when it is required for a deep cut.

  • UNIVERSAL GRADER

    The Universal Grader is by far the most versatile and practical tractor-drawn road grader on the market today. All the operations for this grader are carried out from a safe, comfortable operator’s chair on the grader itself, which uses the tractor’s hydraulic supply. With a 360-degree view and fast-acting controls, the operator can respond to the terrain quickly and effectively. Without the added stresses of speed and direction-control, the operator can focus on creating the perfect road surface. With a wider blade than Uni-Grader, the Universal Grader also boasts a bigger build, making it ideal for larger-scale projects. The Universal Grader also allows the operator to maintain a constant straight course, even if the tractor itself deviates slightly, making it ideal for low-hanging areas or embankments where the tractor alone cannot reach. The unique feature of the Universal Grader is the operator’s safety chair, which is equipped with safety belts and arm rests.

    • Five-lever Hydraulic Control Valve uses the tractors hydraulic supply to carry out all operations of the Grader and is situated on the grader within easy reach of the operator.
    • Hydraulic Lift and Tilt is controlled by two independently regulated wheels and lift arms that smoothly and effortlessly changes the tilt of the blade during operation while working in uneven terrain with better control for a perfect surface finish.
    • Hydraulic Angling of the Blade sets the blade angle hydraulically at any time during operation, which alters the angle to assist with deeper cutting or greater load removal.
    • Hydraulic Steering assists with steering into a cut should the blade want to move in a certain direction and allows for off-centre blade positioning to work along fence lines or under low-lying branches and along steep embankments where tractors cannot pass and allows the operator to maintain a constant straight line even if the tractor driver deviates slightly off course.
    • Weighted Blade Box adds weight to the blade for a deeper surface penetration while allowing the machine to cut into the surface effortlessly regardless of the terrain and surface conditions.
    • Ballasted Wheel Arms adds more weight to the blade during operation while allowing for placement of additional weight on one side of the blade when it is required for a deep cut.
    • Reversible Cutting Edges comprise of two interchangeable cutting edges which allows for optimisation of wear on the blades by being able to swop the cutting edges from the left side to       the right side when the blade corners have worn round and lose their ability to penetrate.
    • Five-Shank Scarifier is positioned in front of the blade along the draw bar and is controlled by means of hydraulic cylinders from the operator’s seat which allow the scarifier to be lowered and raised as needed.  Which in turn rips up hard ground or compacted material that the blade can’t remove by itself.  The shanks also have depth control adjustments to adapt to all conditions.
    • Perfect hitch, Hitching System allows for a greater degree of movement in all directions between the machine and the tractor.
    • Operators Safety Chair is equipped with safety belts and arm rests to ensure operator safety and is strategically placed for the operator to access the controls with ease.

  • WINDROWER

    Radium Engineering has joined forces with world-renowned Canadian agricultural equipment manufacturers Schulte, importing their Rotary Cutters and now also their Rock Pickers and Windrowers.

    The Pivoting Rock Windrower is designed to windrow small to medium rocks with ease, forming them into neat, uniform rows which are ready for pick-up by a rock picker. Roots, stumps, chips and other debris from land clearing operations can also be windrowed. As an added bonus, the Windrower has a roto-tilling action which tends to break up lumps and level the ground. Its added tooth length increases the combing action of the rake and allows for superior windrowing of rocks. Rural municipalities and counties use it to reclaim gravel from roadsides, proving the machine’s rugged construction and durability.

    This implement employs a side-delivery frame arrangement which allows the operator to better control the size of windrows, regardless of rock conditions. The windrower’s patented floating drum arrangement allows the wheels to be placed closer to the windrower drum, resulting in excellent ground-following characteristics. Power is supplied to the windrower drum via a heavy duty PTO drive line, which includes a slip clutch and shear bolt arrangement for protection against excessive shock loads. The final drive chain is totally enclosed for longer service life.

    • Ultra-narrow transport width allows the farmer to transport the windrower with ease from field to field.
    • Windrows 5-69cm rocks with ease forming them into neat uniform rows while also creating a level and clean field.
    • Heavy duty PTO drive line includes a slip clutch and shear bolt arrangement for protection against excessive shock loads.
    • Enclosed final drive chain allows for longer service life
    • Heavy duty windrow drum is constructed of a heavy wall of high tensile strength steel tube.
    • Hard surfaced teeth are welded directly to the drum pipe, resulting in problem-free operation even in difficult conditions.
    • Drum Speed is reduced to 117rpm from a 540rpm PTO input from the tractor.
