Operating Cat 627 Scraper from cut area to fill area
Decided Id slap a GoPro on a CAT 627 Scraper and make a round. These scrapers are old but they still move a bunch of dirt. They have twin engines front and back so that a push-cat isnt required to get a load.
Some scraper operators need to learn how important lip operation is to loading your machine faster, and fuller. Load should look like the top of an ice cream cone in that bowl.
Did you ever compare this type of operation with a set up with a wheel-loader loading tipper trucks? We don’t use scrapers often here and I wonder how this operation compares with respect to fuel-efficiency (ltr/m3 or gallons per volume transported ) and operational costs… What is the average pay-load per trip? Would be interesting to compare the cycle-times and productions… 🙂
Pick it up and go.
Operated Cat 627A back in the 70’s. Then Tearex TS-14s and a TS-18.
It’s not big enough!
Fairly long haul to the fill area.
Quem estuda Eng. Civil e veio assistir isso pq tá estudando esse assunto?
Teringat masa kerja di aay dulu, bawa scraper.
Those things make young men old
I started operating Caterpillar equipment in the late 60’s, several dozers and some scrapers were cable yet and pony motors to start the diesel engine.. But, close to 33 years on scraper alone, so I really like watching these equipment videos, brings back memories.. The 631 & 627 scrapers were productive scrapers and rather easy to maneuver in tight places..
Vídeo 🔝🔝🔝 , me fez lembrar de quando asfaltaram a estrada onde moravamos no sítio !!!!
Had one of those things chase me as a kid. We pulled marking stakes out of the ground and were sword fighting, guy was pissed
How do the pan operators know where to scrape and where to dump? Seems like these points constantly shiift around as the project develops. Don they radio one another? Or is a case of follow-the-leader?
I operated with older equipment. All cable with a D9 in front " Cat and Can ". The Cat could walk right on through those cables if you weren’t carful. I watched an operator do this 9 times in three days. I had to help him retread those cable. I also operated as a " Push Cat " when we were too deep and had him push me out so to get a full load of rock and dirt digging a 6 ft core trench also using scarfing teethfor the dams.
took to long in the cut a lot of material going out the top sides of the bowl.
Mark is that a stiff hitch? better check with your doctor to see if your insides are healthy enough for scraper——> ☻
Seems like an awful amount of time, money, fuel and man hours spent just to move a bunch of dirt. You hire a bunch of good ol’ Canadian boys with a few hutterites with shovels an wheel barrels, pay em some beer and we’d get it done….mind you those damn Hutterites would just be bitchen about de beer but we could just give em a goat or sumthin!
GO! NOVO! GO!
in some material its hard to get that :ice cream topping:
O gerai, tai nors paaiškėjo kaip tas daiktas darbuojasi.
They are if u are in gutless dry silica sand even deflated tyres don’t help in that shit. Is your cushion hitch not working?
an operator once told that you get on the scraper an disengage your brain.
Are those dual pull behind scrapers more efficient?
I can go back to the big green machines … The old Terex 24s with duel engines
Where was this video made? what part of the world?
Driver wasting a lot of fuel by overfilling and grinding for nothing
