Hi shorty, action photos are a few months off as the ground is rock hard around here now but I'm dreaming of getting it in the dirt.

P,S. nice build , be good when it's finished & plenty of odd jobs for it

Hi holdenboy, yea they are called different names around the world, ie: pan scraper, slip scraper, Buck scraper, but they all do the same thing and look to be hard work using them, but they did the job and were used for many years. Looking forward to seeing your pictures

Nice build so far MNGB. I am looking forward to seeing the finished project. Up here the unit you started with was called a slush scraper or so my dad tells me. We used one back in the mid 80's to dig the foundation hole for my parents house.  Loosened the ground first with an old Sears front tine tiller, then dragged out the loose dirt with the slush scraper being pulled by an old Oliver standard 70. Much slower than a backhoe or an excavator, but also much cheaper.

Hey thanks Jim, I've heard that name also, all of them many years ago so its fun to hear them again and enjoy the stories that go along, fellow that gave me the I have, used it to clean out a drainage ditch on his farm, and I came remember my Dad and I using one over fifty years ago to build up our home place driveway.

Ok made good progress on the scraper this afternoon basically it completed just have to paint the end gate and install it. Hitched it to the PK this afternoon and gave it a trial run then run it outside  and being an old kid I could not resist and tried it out in the snow and it worked good. I like it.

Looks great and seems to be working good too. I have only ever seen a full sized tow behind scraper in pictures.

OK the scraper is completed and now parked somewhat out of the way, hopefully in about 4 months I can get it out and give it a real test. Today's finishing thing was to get the end gate installed and that's all done.
