Given the popularity of fodder beet in NZ, particularly in the South Island, it was no surprise to see auger/chopper buckets on Fieldays exhibitor sites.
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.
