Graders on tracks

Here we have a couple of contenders for first road graders on tracks, apparently a dead end in grader development. Champion had their Yuba Ball track tractor powered unit in 1911, discontinued because of the expense, below is a Russell #10 Road Patrol of about the same period.

If you really want a tracked grader, these guys make a pretty cool grader attachment for your tracked Caterpillar loader:

Well, that was cool. The attachments that are available for a skidsteer. I like the caster front wheels!

Watched the video. Do these systems ATS / UTS actually manipulate the blade or is that still up to the operator while being directed by the system?
