    Based on another example I saw where the sticker logo is readable it is from 1976-1977. But then again it has been made for a long time and could be earlier. Hard to say as the sticker on this is unreadable.
    This grader is 17 1/2" long and 7 1/2" tall. At the rear of the cab is a small handle to steer the front wheels. You have to adjust the blade by hand.
    They use the full size version for snow removal here. The backend is higher than the hood of an SUV. I know as one almost backed over me. The driver likely knew what he was doing but I felt the need to honk the horn anyway. I generally try to avoid that.
