Motor Grader Concept By Frederik Nilsson
The Motor Grader concept envisioned by Swedish designer Fredrik Nilsson is here to assist those who have problems in maneuvering mega machines which are used to create flat surfaces and cambered cross-sections for roads. May it be the huge size, bad visibility or usage of advanced tools in conventional machines, this concept will iron out all these hitches. Built in a way to provide maximum utility to the user, the cabin can be swung out when required, moved around or rotated as per the situation at hand. This is not all; the motor grader concept has made use of pendulum suspension and gyros to provide maximum support and balance to the machine.
The Motor Grader relies heavily on its design for its success. The designer Frederik Nilsson, a student of Umea Institute of Design, Sweden, conducted massive researches along with trial runs for machines in order to explore the various problems faced by the operators of these mean machines. Lego technics, mock up building, sketching were some of the means used by the designer for gauging the problems. Once implemented into a machine, it would enable the operator to view maximum ground. The pendulum wheel suspension and gyro technology would maintain the necessary balance, and simultaneously, curb all those mean potholes on the road while driving.
Where operators of earlier machines had to keep their eyes and ears open, maneuver the machine in such a way so as to avoid the bumps and holes, and make use of multiple controls to keep the front wheels and blades in tandem with the road, the new concept design will make all these hitches the things of past for sure.
