Construction Applications


„We Make The Earth Move”


PULL SCRAPERS INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
and DECREASE COSTS

As the construction and civil engineering sectors become more and more competitive, the need to lower costs while increasing productivity is essential. A growing number of earthmoving companies are finding that tractors pulling IMC Scrapers are a very durable, highly productive solution that requires a considerably smaller investment than conventional earthmoving combinations.

Conventional earthmoving with excavator, dump trucks and bulldozer:

  • are an expensive investment
  • requires 4 x more labor
  • burns more fuel
  • costs more to operate and maintain

Tractor / IMC Scraper advantage:

  • Move more material faster
    • all work in productive motion
  • Lower operational costs
    • less labor to manage
    • less fuel to burn
    • less equipment to maintain
  • Less total investment

IMC Scrapers move more dirt in less time and at lower cost!

More Expensive, Less Productive

versus

IMC Scraper advantage

More Productive,
Less Expensive

One tractor, two IMC Scrapers move 34m3 dirt per cycle!

The investment required for owning and operating a tractor and IMC Scraper setup is much lower than compared to conventional earthmoving systems. Hence, capital costs are minimized while fuel, labor and maintenance costs are significantly reduced.

Tractor-pulled scrapers are more productive because they are self-contained units that are always in productive motion. They do not wait for emptied dumpers to return for re-loading. Depending on the length of the haul, the tractor pulled scraper can often move more material in the same time – and at much reduced costs.

What’s more, the same tractor and IMC Scraper can be used to maintain the haul road on the return trips, thus eliminating the need for graders.




Motorized Self-propelled Scrapers
Compared to Tractor Pulled Scrapers

Both are highly productive, efficient earthmoving machines that dig, haul and spread soil to finish grade.
But, there are important differences. What are they?





FIXED BOWL-CAPACITY


FLEXIBLE LOADING CAPACITY –
SINGLE, TANDEM OR TRIPPLE






FRONT-AXLE TRACTION ONLY


4 WD - HIGH TRACTION


RUBBER TRACK – EXTREME TRACTION



REQUIRE EXPENSIVE PUSH LOADING w/ BULLDOZER


TRACTORS CAN OPERATE ON STEEPER SLOPES


SMALL FOOT PRINT, LESS FLOATATION

 
BROADER FOOT PRINT, LESS ROLLING RESISTANCE, BETTER FLOATATION
