A scraper is typically used in the construction of roads, mining, and subdivision development. Scrapers fall under 2 general types; open bowl and elevating. Previous models needed towing but more modern scrapers are self-propelled and equipped with a front and back engine.
Elevating scrapers gather earth using an elevator that functions like a chain to raise the earth for redistribution. A bowl scraper gathers earth using a cutting edge that is lowered into the ground while scraping until such time that the bowl is full and contents can then be redistributed. Some scrapers are used in tandem and may require bulldozers to mobilize them.
