Alaska “Box” Grader

Note the “box” or the shorter blade that runs at 90 degrees to the main grader blade. This grader, and others like it, do the snow plowing in Anchorage, Alaska; probably other places too. The “box” blade, operated from the cab, shuts down at each driveway entrance. This prevents massive amounts of snow being dumped in driveway entrances.
