Thread: bucket and box scraper

  1. #1

    bucket and box scraper

    This was my first major welding project and has served me well over the past 5 years cutting was done w/oxy/acet and stick welded. I made rippers for the box scrapper that are not shown.

    I've had to pick up the back end of the tractor with a excavator by the box scraper that's what the rusty scratches are on it. I couldn't believe it held together!

    Been scrapen for 5 years and didn't even scratch the paint. Must be EMRON.

    The manual says 5300ish. But this is the industrial model has much heavier front axle and the tires are calcium filled plus the weight of the front end loader. I hauled it once on a trailer rated at 8000 and it didn't handle real well. I bought a triple axle which will be my next project re-decking, welding D-rings, and re designing/welding the ramps.

    I've only used the scapper 10 times maybe although will use it much more next year. Primarly I use the front end loader.

    I cant believe the paint lasted through the first use. Do you know (remember ) what brand it is?

    I might be able to figure it out but it was cheap mail order around $20 gal....I used a good rust inhibiting primer though and that is really the key to bond to the metal.
