DEVELOPED for YOUR DRIVING TECHNIQUE - Our designers motto is to create wear steel that meet drivers ' driving techniques and requirements on small abutment surfaces. It provides low leaf press, the machines will be more maneuverable, fuel consumption is reduced, and the way the steel's financial longevity increases.

QUALITY AND KNOWLEDGE

The company of Olofsfors was founded in 1762. Since its conception 250 years ago, it has been producing world renound high quality steel products. To this day, production is still at the same place located in the Northern part of Sweden. Three families have been involved since the begining of our dynamic company: Jennings, Pauli and Wikstrom. The proud Wikstrom family have been owners since 1864. From 1762 and up until the late 19th century, Olofsfors produced steel from its own mill. Since the late19th century Olofsfors has been focused on producing special and hardened steel products. This focus has produced the absolute best and highest quality of wear-resistant steel products in the world, resulting in Olofsfors becoming a contracted supplier to many well known Large Equipment Manufacturers. The Olofsfors business model still holds true today: produce high quality steel products through a focused mixture of knowlege and durability, adding value to our partners’ products.

 

 

5 Reasons for choosing SharqEdges System:

#1. REDUCED FUEL CONSUMPTION AND EMISSIONS.

With Sharq                                           Without Sharq

Because

  • Thinner/sharper edges require less down pressure and hence less power from the engine.
  • Grading the Sharq way lets you run the grader at higher gears and less RPM.

   

#2. REDUCED TIME AND COST OF CHANGING EDGES.

Because:

  • No pneumatics required
  • No need to take the grader back to the workshop for blade changes.
  • Our quick mounting system requires only one person to change edges on site.
  • Edges are light weight, easy to transport and store on the grader.

   

#3. THE COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR ALL ROAD CONDITIONS.

Because: 

  • SharqEdges have super sharp edges for any condition and outperform standard grader edges in harsh conditions.

  • Range includes extra hard, flat and serrated edges up to ¾” thick, and last more than 35% longer than conventional grader blades.

#4. IMPROVED OPERATOR ENVIRONMENT.

With Sharq                                                            Without Sharq

Because:

  • Grading the Sharq way with thinner/ sharper edges allows you to run at higher gears and less RPM, drastically reducing shattering and noise in the cab.

  

#5. REDUCED WEAR ON THE GRADER AND TIRES.

With Sharq                                                            Without Sharq

Because:

  • Thinner/sharper edges require less down pressure results in less wear on all parts of the machine including the tires.
  • The mounting plate protects the mold board.
  • If the edge takes a large impact (from a manhole for instance) the tough edge will flex and/or the wedge bolts will break to protect the mold board and rest of the grader from damage.
