Little Off The Top

2020-12-22T11:34:59-06:00November 11th, 2020|News|

Towed scrapers tend to be less expensive, versatile, and productive. In highway and other construction applications, scrapers are used for moving soil over long distances (up to 2 miles). Pull-pan ejector scrapers provide three important functions of self-loading material in the cut zone, transporting the material on the haul road, and finely spreading the material out in the fill area—all in one machine. These requirements make pull pan ejector scrapers the right choice for bulk earthwork operations associated with roadway building, clearing and grubbing, and site development.
