Bill Tommye Marion We have found a adams leaning wheel grader with the id plate still on it.It was used by ny Father along time ago and had sat forgotton in a field.Now my wife and I have brought it home and would like to find out some info on it.It is a model # 11 and any help with finding out when it was made and the value of it would be wonderful.We spotted a picture of a model # 83 and it looked like it was john deere green.Would really like to restore it all its parts do work on it.Just really rusted and no paint on it left.Thanks for any and all help.
Jane Hanas I am also interested in the origin of a Adams Leaning Wheel Grader model 84. Where can I get any information on this grader?
Thank you.

Don Hopkins I own an Adams motor grader which once belonged to the Army Corps of engineers which at one time was Dark olive drab green.That may explain the green color of the machine your describing.I'm always looking for parts so if you decide to sell or part yours out or have any questions feel free to contact me.

John Whittet I am an intern at Collier Memorial State Park in Southern Oregon. We have a restored Adams leaning wheel grader here at the logging museum. Unfortunately, I don't have a history of our model, or any of yours, either. What I can tell you is that ours is John Deere green, with yellow highlights. It is much the same colors as the Green Bay Packers green and yellow. I am assuming, because we have no background history, that the colors were chosen from original paint colors left on our machine. Our serial plate is missing as well, so I don't know the model type. Hope this info helps some of you.
biilll marion thanks for the reply our grader is a model 11
rick l. i bought an Adams Leaning Wheel Grader #8 from an ad here on YT about three years ago...from my searches on the net and a very old thread from here, the correct color is not John Deere Green, but very close to Rustoleum #7738 hunter green (i have pics to back that up). and there was stenciling on various parts of each model which also varied depending on the date of manufacture.
those stencils were indeed yellow. close to the John Deere yellow (have pics of that too).

i also have an original parts manual for the No.12
(which meant that it had a 12 foot blade. the rest of the iron work and mechanics were pretty much the same model to model.

just finished the paint on mine and used it at the County Fair this last weekend!!!

would correspond with other serious Adams fans!
may be of some help, and may learn something in the process!!!

Floyd Green I just bought an Adams Leaning Wheel Grade too and I am having trouble finding info. Have you had any luck getting more info? It seems every reference here on the net is another person looking for info. Nobody I can find has found any.

Floyd Green I just bought an Adams Leaning Wheel Grader. I have been looking for any info. Would it be possible to get a copy of your parts manual? Do you know where I might look for more info? I do not have any idea what I have.
Howard I have a chance to purchase an Adam's Leaning Wheel Grader, Model #83, It's in very goo shape, still has the original paint, yellow and green. I don't know what would be a good price. I tried to find out on the web but not much help. Do you have an idea?
Dave Just wondering if you have found out anything on the grader. I have a #7 that belonged to my grandfather.
Tim Smith We just found one this on a Jeep trip this last weekend on a back round (read OLD dirt road) to the Grand Canyon. We have no idea how old it is, but thought it was worth a picture. Hope you enjoy it.
