John Deere scraper systems in construction
Top-loading large-scale commercial construction
In both large- and small-scale jobs for commercial and residential applications, John Deere scraper systems shine. With capacities ranging from 11.5 to 18.3 m³(15 to 24 cu yd) and single cycle payloads of up to 55 m³ (72 cu yd), John Deere scrapers are versatile enough for contractors who work in a broad range of job types. John Deere scrapers really shine in highway construction and other infrastructure development projects where long cuts and fills at high volumes are common.
John Deere scrapers are a valuable part of any construction fleet, whether as the primary mover or a complement to other equipment. Scrapers excavate, carry, spread, and grade material, making it the most efficient and versatile machine on any job site.
Precision leveling farm land with iGrade™
John Deere scraper systems are not just for precision land leveling. A sophisticated suite of precision agriculture products are offered, including iGrade for land leveling and Surface Water Pro™ Plus for ditching and levee building.
The scrapers are also perfect for cattle feed lot maintenance, grain bin foundations, waterway topsoil reclamation, commercial ponds, and much more. Anywhere material needs to be moved, John Deere scrapers provide a solution that can excavate, carry, and grade material with one operator, one implement, and one tractor. This gives the grower or contractor a level of efficiency that cannot be achieved with most traditional construction equipment.
Scrapers hauling coal Stripping overburden
Just as contractors have adopted scrapers for their exemplary cost and productivity, miners look for greater efficiency when moving dirt or mined material. Scrapers are an excellent way to strip and reclaim overburden in pit mines or to simply haul stockpiled mined material such as coal.
John Deere scrapers are built to handle the most unique materials – nimble enough to handle light materials like coal yet rugged enough for heavier materials like wet sea salt.
Waste management applications
Descending a landfill with a single ejector
John Deere scraper systems are perfect for building and covering landfill cells in waste management applications. Waste management companies have experienced tremendous savings by trading in their trucks and excavators for the John Deere scraper system.
Scrapers not only do a great job of creating a cell, but their ability to spread material on grade make it ideal for covering waste. The gang of tires compact the material as it is unloaded and will not prematurely degrade haul roads. The scraper’s heavy-duty, rock-lug tires can handle the hazardous conditions found in a landfill. When heavy-garbage trucks deteriorate the offloading ramp, use the scraper blade to grade and rebuild it.
