Motorized Scrapers which is sometimes referred to as Wheeled Tractor Scraper are heavy equipment’s meant to transport materials. Its rear part consists of the vertical hopper containing a sharp horizontal front edge that can be easily raised or lowered. While lowering a hopper, the front edge acts like a cheese slicer to break the soil and fill up the hopper. Hoppers are raised once it is full and it automatically shuts down using a vertical blade.

Motorized Scrapers is ideal to cover shorter distances since both cut and fill spots are nearby. It does have adequate length in order to fill up the hopper. Most heavy scrapers comprises of two main engines operating at a speed of about four hundred KW. Each is propelled by the front wheel and rear wheels respectively.


The initial Motorized Scraper was introduced by R. G. LeTourneau back in the year 1930. It was operated with the help of electric motors.

Construction NVQ training course clearly defines the role and responsibilities of candidates while working as a plant operator. It focuses on describing the purpose behind using components.
