EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES
The 130G Series Grader provides the Army with the capability of rough and finished grading, low and high bank
sloping, flat and V-ditching, scarifying bituminous road mixes, and snow removal. Mission support role includes
construction and maintenance of roads, airfields, hardstands, drainage, site preparation for pipeline, and river
The 130G Series Grader has excellent maneuverability, fast, precise blade control without drift, superior visibility,
convenience, and safety with true sit-down operation.
Throughout this manual, some titles, callouts, and descriptions are followed by CCE Machine, Type I
Machine, and/or Type II Machine in parentheses. This indicates that the statement only applies to that spe-
cific design. If a name is not shown, the statement applies to all designs.
There are five models of the 130G Series Grader. See Model Difference Chart in this work package. The main dif-
ference between these models is two can be sectionalized (130GS and 130GSCE) and three cannot be sectional-
ized (130G, 130GNS, and 130GNSCE). Sectionalization is the process of separating the machine in two halves for
the purpose of air transport. Refer to TM 5-3805-261-10 for sectionalization procedures.
