Official Guide to the Government Court: N.Z. Centennial Exhibition

Public Works Department

Public Works Department

Machinery Section

This exhibit consists of a full-sized diesel-engine-driven power-grader manufactured entirely in New Zealand to drawings and specifications prepared by the Public Works Department, the power unit being a British-made diesel engine of approximately 55 B.H.P.

The unit is raised on the stand, with the wheels free from the floor to enable the traction and power-control mechanism to be operated under throttled engine power throughout the whole period of the Exhibition.

To add to the educational value of the exhibit, a number of selected working drawings from which the machine was manufactured are on exhibition in the appropriately designed stand.

The exhibit is located in the Engineering Court.
