Simple scraper with clever features

Written by  Staff Reporters

Many familiar, straightforward items of kit do a good job day in, day out. For example, the Zocon modular rubber scraper from importer Ag-Attachments.

The scraper will suit farmers looking to clean feed pads or collecting yards and to push feed up to barriers.

Fitted with a 40 cm rubber blade, with steel reinforcing to improve durability, the scraper is available in 2.7 or 3.0 m working widths. 

Each end of the scraper blade can be angled to increase holding capacity, and the whole blade assembly can be angled up to 60 degrees left or right.

Heavily galvanised steel in the support frame resists the harsh environment, and a combination headstock offers several user possibilities. 

Attachment is easy to a conventional three-point linkage, a frontloader or a telehandler equipped with pallet forks. This means the scraper need not always be tied to one prime mover. 

For operators wanting to keep their boots clean an optional hydraulic kit is available to angle the blade from the driver’s seat.
