Graders and scrapers play the key role in concrete road building. “Large road projects like interstate highway expansions and turnpike corridors are of vital infrastructure importance. Often these projects require millions of cubic yards of material to be moved, with timelines being expedited to under seven months of construction work from start to finish to mitigate traffic constraints and delays,” says Shane Kroeker, spokesperson for K-Tec Earthmovers.
SMT GB has been appointed as the official distributor for K-Tec articulated hauler scraper boxes on mainland Great Britain. SMT GB will now be responsible for the sales and after-market support for the K-Tec range of articulated dump truck scrapers boxes in their territory.

The ADT and K-Tec Scraper pairing is a much more “green” and fuel efficient solution for the jobsites and mines. Studies have shown a reduction in the carbon footprint of up to 2.5 Times compared to older traditional equipment.
Earthworks Solutions visited an Australian customer who operates the New Holland T9.670 tractor to pull a 28 cu.yd. K-Tec 1228 scraper, which it fills in no more than 30 seconds. Its fuel consumption is impressive at only 37L/hour.
“The T9.670 is moving twice as much dirt in roughly the same time while using less fuel so we also settled on the T9.670 to look at the option of towing a second K-Tec 1228 scraper in tandem."
