Sharq Quick Mount System for Grader Blades

mounting boardSharq provides mounting boards that let you convert any motor grader to the Sharq Edges system. These boards come in 7 and 8 foot segments that you bolt on to the base of your moldboard. After you install the wedge bolts, you simply set the blades on the bolts and wedge them in. No impact wrench required!

These boards allow you to quickly change out your grader blades for any road condition in just 15 minutes. Rather than heading back to the shop, you simply grab your hammer and your wedge and go to work. Watch the video below to see how the quick mount system works.

Save Your Moldboard!

By adding a mounting board, you add an extra layer of protection for your moldboard. Too often operators wear through their grader blades and start tearing into the moldboard. That won't happen with the Sharq system. If you wear past your blade, you will only damage the mounting board; we assure you that is a much cheaper fix than replacing an entire moldboard.

Carry Your Complete Grader Cutting Edge System With You

Have you ever been out on the road with the wrong blade? With the Sharq quick change system, you don't have to try to make that blade do the job. You can carry your complete toolbox of cutting edges with you. All you have to do is hop out, hammer some wedges out and replace your blades. Sharq even provides a wedge removal tool that makes this process even easier.
