Adams Salesman Sample Road Grader J. D. Adams Salesman Sample Road Grader  This is the real deal.  It is very graphic and looks great. This engineering company hailed from Indianapolis IN. This is a very complicated piece of machinery.  I am not totally sure, but was told there are some missing pieces / springs to hold the lower grader portion at different angles.   Look at all the pics to see all the different gear boxes, adjusters, fittings and more that this has. This rare & desirable c. 1910 salesman's sample measures approx. 10.25" H x 8.5" W x 22.5" L.

The operator would stand on the grate at the rear and have to control all the different wheels and levers as the grader was being pulled along.  Nice!!
