New Scrapers For the New John Deere Tractors

John Deere is updating its ejector scraper line with two and four wheel tire options with larger capacities, to help reduce operating costs and increase cycle times. The 1612DE, 2010DE, 2014DE, 2412DE helps contractors lower the cost per cubic yard of material moved. Added capacity is the number one customer-requested product enhancement, the company stated.

“The two tire and larger capacity scraper segments are growing fast and earthmovers expect a scraper system with more capacity for increased productivity, less complex hitching and attachment options, and stronger warranty coverage,” said David Wilson, product marketing manager, scraper systems, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “These new ejector capacities also convert more evenly into tons, making them compare well to articulated dump trucks while more closely aligning to self-propelled scraper capacity ratings.”

The two wheels also allow quicker cycle times with less rolling resistance and drag, which can reduce costs per cubic yard, and provide greater floatation and reduced drag in wet, heavy clay conditions.

The scraper systemshave less complicated hitching and attachment options, with an integrated push block, Quik Attach Hitch, and spill guard that feature fewer parts and are easier to configure and match – all saving time when using the equipment. A single, 60 mm hitch pin on all scrapers will dramatically reduce user complexity.

The new John Deere D-Series scrapers will also feature a 12-month warranty.
