What is a Scraper?

Quick Links: How do scrapers work? What are the different types of scrapers? What are the typical scraper hire rates? Scrapers are powerful machines that are typically used for agricultural, mining and construction projects. Scrapers are capable of completing digging, loading, hauling, dumping and earthmoving projects.

As the blade scrapes up dirt or other materials when the machine moves forward, the material is forced into the hopper. Once the hopper is completely full, the material is taken away to be disposed of.These machines work most efficiently when the fill and cut areas are close together and long enough for the hopper to be filled in one run.
