Scraper hire near you

Scrapers often play a crucial role in large earthmoving, agricultural, mining and construction projects, as powerful and versatile tools. iseekplant has an extensive range of scraper hire suppliers throughout Australia who offer open bowl, laser bucket, elevating and twin powered scrapers. Scrapers work most efficiently when the fill and cut areas are close together and long enough for the hopper to be filled in one run. It’s also possible for a team to use multiple scrapers in a long cut area, using dozers and the push-pull technique.

Scrapers are equipped with a hopper, gate and blade at the bottom. The blade scrapes up dirt and other materials when the scraper moves forward, forcing the material into the hopper. Once the hopper is completely full, the material is taken away to be appropriately disposed.

Open Bowl Scrapers

Open bowl scrapers are the most basic type of scraper, featuring a hydraulically-powered hopper which moves on a vertical axis. While the front part of the hopper can self-fill, a dozer is also necessary for most projects. Open bowl scraper hire suppliers provide scrapers for a range of applications, and their hydraulic systems allow all the components (including the apron and ejector) to function independently.

Elevating Scrapers

Elevating scrapers offer higher efficiency without needing to use a dozer, as they can self-fill and complete fine finish work and material homogenisation. For comparison, open bowl scrapers have an apron that drops down over the material for containment, whereas elevating scrapers have an electrically or hydraulically-driven elevator made up of two chains and a series of crossbars. Material is dumped from the elevating scraper when the floor of the bowl is slid backwards, and the elevator is reversed to ensure that the load is evenly dumped.

Twin Powered Scrapers

Twin powered or tandem powered scrapers are often used for large-scale earthmoving projects. Twin powered scrapers have rear axles with a front engine and capacity of up to 400kW. The tandem push-pull scraper combines the horsepower of two machines into one with self-loading capabilities in less than a minute.

The iseekplant directory features scraper hire suppliers offering heavy-duty scrapers that can get the job done quickly and efficiently. Scrapers can have many different setups including auger scrapers, pull scrapers and more, so you can easily find the best scraper for your next project. Get in touch the iseekplant team by calling 1300 691 912 or emailing projects@iseekplant.com.au to connect with the most reliable and cost-effective suppliers in your local area.
