Built his own high rise scraper
Commercial dirt movers wouldn't lift high enough or dig deep enough so I recently built my own "high rise" scraper. I raise fish commercially and use the scraper to dig ponds and also to build terraces. I also use it to drag dirt into pot holes in fields during winter months. Commercial scrapers don't lift high enough to let me unload a pile of dirt in a pothole. The long frame of this scraper, which is controlled by a top-mounted cylinder, lifts the blade to clear 3ft. on dry ground. The scraper has a 15-ft. wide blade. I pull it with a 4-WD Deere tractor.
