Twin-powered self-loading scrapers are relatively new in the construction equipment field. The high horsepower to weight ratios coupled with all-wheel drive give two axle scrapers excellent performance in the cut, on the haul road, and in the fill area. Self-loading is accomplished with heavy-duty elevator systems. Loading time and distance is less than that experienced with single engine elevating scrapers. This type of equipment, in the 20 and 30 yd3 class, is geared to handle a wide variety of construction and mining production jobs and has long since graduated from the “cleanup tool” and “potato dirt” type equipment.
