The elevating scraper is relatively new in the construction equipment field but is rapidly increasing in use and numbers. This is the result of its ability to excavate, pulverize, load, haul, spread, and to some degree compact the material without the aid of other supporting equipment. The WABCO 101-F scraper is a new unit in the 9-yd class which efficiently displays these abilities. Although a low-cost machine, it achieves unusually good load, haul, and spread time through improved elevator design and good power-to-weight ratio. Operator position is a new concept to improve visibility and comfort. Legally roadable, the 101-F is usable on a wide variety of construction jobs.
