3 Pt Dirt Scraper
"It's the best leveling, scraping and grading tool I've ever seen. We use it to clean out waterways, build terraces, level drive-ways, pick rocks, scrape manure, and for fmish grading around buildings. It's much more accurate and versatile than a front-end loader or a rear-mounted bucket because it can be used to scrape accurately at 1 to 6 in. depths and dumps to the front for accurate leveling and grading," says Wurdinger, who lives near Waverly, Iowa and also manufactures a 3-pt. mounted tiling machine.
The 3-pt. scraper holds up to a yard of dirt. Scraping depth and dumping is con-trolled by two 2 la by 18-in. hydraulic cylinders. When used to capacity, the scraper requires a minimum 110 hp. tractor. Wurdinger notes that because the load rests over the rear drive wheels, and because it's operated in a forward direction, the 3-pt. scraper has much better traction in ditches, water-ways and other slick areas than a front loader bucket or rear scoop.
When needed, however, the bucket can be reversed so that it faces the rear by simply removing 6 bolts on each side and turning the bucket around.
Sells for $1,950.
