K-Tec Earthmovers have released a new accessory for 500+HP tractors to enhance earthmoving operations. The K-Tec Tricerabox is a 14' wide box blade that is mounted to the 3-point hitch on the rear of a tractor. The three functions of the Tricerabox include the leveling blade pulling material forward, ripper teeth sinking down into the soil, and blade backwards for pushing dozing material. The blade is ideal for leveling out uneven cut zones, to prepare a productive loading area for enhanced scraper productivity. It has seven ground ripper shanks that are hydraulically operated to lower and engage the ground for ripping up hard soil or aerating wet jobsites.
A contracting company sitting atop Stony Mountain just north of Winnipeg, Earth Max Construction is gaining ground in a niche earthmoving market for public works departments of rural municipalities in Manitoba. Initially moving dirt with an excavator to top-load a 40-ton articulated dump truck, Earth Max has switched to scrapers which offer them greater productivity.
Though it conjures up images of a small, home-based task, the phrase “the right tool for the right job,” is equally relevant in large construction projects. Failure to employ the right equipment or technology can impact production, timelines, and ultimately, a company’s bottom line.
K-Tec Earthmovers have released a new 1228ADT scraper model to reach a broader range of earthmoving professionals. The 28-cubic-yard scraper has been one of K-Tec’s most popular models for years, but now K-Tec has enabled a system to mount onto an Articulated Dump Truck (ADT) chassis, in addition to agriculture or construction tractors. Contractors who already have a 25- or 30-ton ADT in their fleet, can easily convert the hauler to pull a K-Tec 1228ADT for a unit that can self-load, transport, and eject material with a single engine running and sole operator.
A demo was held with Strongco in Grande Prairie, Alberta, where the K-Tec 1233 ADT series scraper was tasked with stripping topsoil with a mile round trip. According to Dave Wittenberg, scraper product specialist for K-Tec, this application demonstrated that the K-Tec and ADT earthmoving solution can efficiently perform the work of three different machines with just one operator and a single power-unit. This massive advantage provides fuel savings for the contractor, resulting in an environmentally-friendly and profitable earthmoving operation. The K-Tec and ADT solution accomplished about 75 percent of the work that two excavators, three dozers and five rock trucks did in the same time frame.
K-Tec Earthmovers, a Canadian-based manufacturer, has just launched its latest and largest construction pull scraper for massive scale earthmoving. The K-Tec 1263 ADT is the world’s largest earthmoving scraper available on the market today. With a heaped capacity of 63 cubic yards (ISO) and empty tare weight of 61,000 pounds, the K-Tec 1263 ADT is built for massive dirt moving projects. Designed to be pulled with a 40Ton+ Articulated Dump Truck, this scraper is ready to help contractors substantially reduce their dirt moving costs and gain a massive advantage in the earthmoving industry. The hitch system transfers 32 percent of the scraper load weight directly to the point where the truck is designed to carry weight. An exclusive digital display screen is included in the cab for visual operating details, tracking load count productivity, and troubleshoot serviceability. The 1263 ADT has a bolt-together design which enables overseas container shipment, and ease of maintenance.
Redhead Equipment is pleased to announce they have partnered with K-Tec Earthmovers Inc. to become an authorized dealer of K-Tec Scrapers in Saskatchewan. This alliance will provide Redhead Equipment customers across the province with first hand exposure to K-Tec’s Direct Mount, Train and ADT scrapers, designed to fit any construction or agricultural project.
K-Tec Earthmovers has revealed a new 1243ADT scraper model at ConExpo last week. The new scraper model is designed for Self-Loading up to an ISO rated capacity of 43 Cubic Yards with a 40-ton articulated dump truck power-unit. The ConExpo unit will feature a rolling push-block, streamlined cutting edge, and 29.5 R25 brake-ready wheels.
