Two tire options on the 2010DE and 2412DE models permit higher productivity and less wear in harsh conditions.
The scraper system boasts less complicated hitching and attachment options.
LAS VEGAS (March 4, 2014) – John Deere is updating its ejector scraper line to better serve earthmoving contractors who require larger capacities, lower operating costs, faster cycle times, and appreciate an extended warranty.
"The two tire and larger capacity scraper segments are growing fast," said David Wilson, product marketing manager, scraper systems, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "Earthmovers expect a scraper system with more capacity for increased productivity, less complex hitching and attachment options, and stronger warranty coverage. And our two tire version offers a dramatic reduction in operating costs."
The ability to move more material and increase productivity helps customers lower the cost per cubic yard of material moved. As such, added capacity is the number one customer requested product enhancement. The new John Deere ejector capacities convert more evenly into tons making them compare well to articulated dump trucks, while more closely aligning to self-propelled scraper capacity ratings.
Contractors looking for increased productivity on the jobsite will welcome greater floatation and reduced drag in wet, heavy clay conditions. Two tire options on the 2010DE and 2412DE models permit higher productivity and less wear in harsh conditions. The two wheels also allow quicker cycle times with less rolling resistance and drag, which can reduce costs per cubic yard.
The scraper system also boasts less complicated hitching and attachment options. This includes 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 millimeter hitch pin on all scrapers will dramatically reduce user complexity.
The new John Deere D-Series scrapers will also feature a best-in-class 12 month warranty.
