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.
