A scraper is a wheeled tractor used in highway construction and mines for moving materials over short distances. They move large amounts of material using a sharp front blade to load move dirt into the ‘hopper’. Like with many pieces of heavy machinery, scrapers require a license to operate.
The following are the main types of scrapers available for hire on PlantMiner:
- Open bowl: Often requires a bulldozer (or similar) to help with loading materials.
- Elevating scrapers: Do not require a push-cat for loading material as it uses a conveyor to load material into the hopper.
We list Caterpillar, John Deere and K-Tec scrapers, with the majority of scrapers being Caterpillar produced. For more information on hiring this piece of machinery, either submit a Quote Request above or get in touch with via the phone number at the top of the page.
