K-TEC VS.
THE REST

There are a number of considerations to think about when choosing your next earthmoving equipment rental or purchase. When a contractor is considering a job, the four main dirt moving options are as follows:

K-Tec Scraper

28-74 Cubic Yards / 21-56 m3

Pull Pan Scraper

18-42 Cubic Yards / 13-32 m3

Excavator, ADTs & Dozer

20-44 Cubic Yards / 15-34 m3

Motor Scraper

24-44 Cubic Yards / 18-34 m3

K-Tec Scraper

1 Operator

Pull Pan Scraper

1 Operator

Excavator, ADTs & Dozer

4 Operators

Motor Scraper

1 Operator

K-Tec Scraper

1 Engine / 14 GPH (53 LPH)

Pull Pan Scraper

1 Engine / 15 GPH (56 LPH)

Excavator, ADTs & Dozer

4 Engines / 25 GPH (94 LPH)

Motor Scraper

2 Engines / 22 GPH (83 LPH)

K-Tec Scraper

10 Tires Spread Evenly

Pull Pan Scraper

8-12 Tires Spread Evenly

Excavator, ADTs & Dozer

6 Tires Same Path

Motor Scraper

4 Tires Same Path

FUEL EFFICIENCY

Typically, motor scrapers are not very fuel efficient. With an excavator, rock trucks and dozer, 4 pieces of equipment need 4 engines. K-Tec saves you fuel costs by pulling our scrapers behind a single truck with a fuel consumption average of 14 GPH (53 LPH).

LESS LABOR

Only one operator’s wages are needed for loading, transporting and ejecting up to 74 cubic yards (56 m3) in a single pass. Operator comfort naturally increases productivity over the course of the day.

CAPACITY

Capacity has become a major factor on construction jobs. K-Tec builds the largest pull pan scraper on the market. By keeping costs low, it has enabled our customers to be superior in the industry.

FLOTATION

K-Tec scrapers excel in soft ground conditions. In comparison to traditional motor scrapers that only have 4 tires, the K-Tec / ADT combination has 10 tires spaced evenly across the machine, providing maximum flotation in underfoot conditions.

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

At K-Tec, we ensure you get the best return on your investment. It is a known fact that, when possible, the use of a K-Tec scraper to move dirt is the most cost-effective option. When you consider the following factors the choice is clear.
