Grader on a Sunstar

Recommended Posts

Since I sold off all my Soveriegn style equipment I wanted to put my modified 60" grader blade on the Sunstar. Had to figure out how to put down pressure on the blade by putting some different type of stirrups on it as the footplates on a Sunstar are alot wider.Well, took a pair of Deere 332 brake pedals and did some bending and welding and heres what I came up with..

This works really well, except that you cant pivot the blade the other way as the pedal on the right will hit the rear tire if its angled back on that side. Does what I need around here, mainly crowning the drive.dOd

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
