I picked this up at auction a few years back because it was cheap and I had never seen one. I got everything working but it has too small wheels on it. The plan is to blast and paint it,put the correct size wheels on it and mate it to our AC-416.

Darned if that is not the second one of those I  seen pictures posted on here today! I had never seen one before and could use on on my place.

I like it... So it works like one of the big construction scrapers I guess. Anyone know how well they work?

I too was curious about that? I looked soil mover up on the net and found a video of one being pulled by a 318 and it looked like it worked very well. They did not show the GT and I wondered if it pulled hard enough to get a lot of wheelspin? I would sure like to get one behind my Ford 1500 and give it a go.

I have seen pictures of one a guy modified to make hydraulic, I think I have pictures of it someplace. I bet that with enough weight on it, and something strong enough to pull it it would work rather well!

There's a guy making a scraper similar to that one that uses hydraulics.  He lists it at $975.00

 

Here's the site:

And here's a vid of it in action.

I dug up the pictures of the one I mentioned, it looks like it has more differences then the one in this thread then I had originally thought.

Depends on what you want to do, but when you have the right job and the right tractor, they can move soil pretty fast.

they work well , this is a video of mine im pulling with my 318 with no weights . my 400 pulls it much easier and i can stay at the constant ground speed where my 318 wouldn't  .

good find , now your going to find that the company that made these are out of business. i wanted to repaint mine but you cant get decals so i chose not to . mine also has a aluminum tag with all the info on it and when i called i found out they make stock trailers now and they didn't know where i could find anything for it . after looking at your wheels they do seem to be lighter made than mine . yours is the 4th one i have seen and if im not mistakin it is 1/2 yard .

Hi,
I have one of these as well. Maybe we can get some pictures of the decals, and have them made?
