Wehr Power Grader U4

These photos show a Wehr Power Grader U4 dating to about 1929. It was built by Wehr Power Grader Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin. All controls are manually operated, and drive a 10-20 McCormick-Deering farm tractor. The engine is a McCormick-Deering I-20 (serial no. 8880). It is the same engine as what is in the 40-20 tractor. The grader is unrestored and maybe never will be restored.
