Land-leveling scrapers are very efficient and cost effective for moving soil from one location to another. Rubber-tired tractors with shift-on-the go transmissions are used to pull these units. They can be used as single or tandem scrapers. Several styles are available, and single units range in capacity from 5 to 18 cubic yards. Required tractor horsepower varies from 100 to 500.
Land-leveling scrapers are widely used for leveling farmland, construction sites, and road projects. They are generally not used for long-haul applications.
