1924 – motor grader

The first motor grader, introduced in 1924, had a 22 hp engine, a weight of 5 t. and a top speed of 9,1 km/h.

When the market for motor graders in Europe declined as asphalted roads became more common, the production ended.

Some 70 years later, in 1997, motor graders for a global market were added to the product program. Today, we are one of the largest producers of motor graders worldwide.
