Box Scraper Fitted With Transport Wheels
He added a pair of 6-in. rubber wheels to each side of the scraper, mounting them on a 1/4-in. thick steel bar made by cutting a 3-pt. hitch stabilizer bar down to about a 10-in. length. Each bar is fastened to the scraper by a double-nutted bolt that runs through a hole drilled into the scraper. Creswell drilled 2 more holes a few inches apart, one above the other, at the back of the scraper and also drilled a corresponding hole in each bar. A bolt can be inserted through either hole in order to change the position of the wheel.
“I run a bolt through the top hole to put the scraper on the ground, and through the bottom hole to lift the box off the ground for transport,” says Creswell, who adds that he has a diagram of the modification and would be happy to email it to anyone who’s interested.
