K-Tec Scrapers

K-Tec’s mission is to be trusted with a commitment to continuous improvement, innovation, safety, and quality in everything that they do.

With an honest, humble, and willing demeanor, they strive to provide leading-edge earthmoving equipment for their customers to successfully and efficiently transform landscapes. SMT GB are now responsible for the sales and after-market support for the K- Tec range of articulated scraper boxes in Great Britain.

K-Tec Earthmoving Inc currently offer four sizes of scraper ranging from 21.5m³ heaped capacity and a payload of 30.8 tonnes up to the largest with a 48.1m³ heaped capacity and payload of 68.5 tonnes. The 1237 model is also available as a Train scraper. The conversion from a ADT dumper body to a ADT scraper hauler takes approximately 10 hours with no modifications done to the dumper body and can be reversed in the same amount of time to make this a very versatile earthmoving solution. With the comfort and ride that the Volvo ADT offers and the cushion ride control built into the K-Tec scraper, this makes for a very comfortable and operator friendly environment for the operator.

Quality

  • K-Tec scrapers are designed in 3D models and stress tested

Size

  • K-Tec scrapers range from 28 cubic yards to 63 cubic yards
  • K-Tec scrapers weigh as little as 767lbs/cubic yard, through the advantages of high tensile steel
  • Larger size of scraper increases the amount of dirt that can be moved

Ease of Operation

  • K-Tec scrapers have minimum maintenance, with 6 or less grease points
  • Automatic Cushion Ride offers a smoother ride, and reduces damage to equipment
  • Short turning radius for responsive maneuverability
  • Flotation tires enable operation during muddy soil conditions
  • Large rack retains soil from falling out, offering a fuller heaped capacity
  • Low, large target for top loading and push loading possibilities
  • A minimum of 28” clearance from ground to cutting edge
  • Largest gate and throat opening in the industry, provides easy loading and unloading
  • The opening of the gate, angle of the cutting edge, the relief behind the cutting edge, and the shape of the bowl, all contribute to K-Tec scrapers being able to load up to an additional 50% more material in the same time as alternative brands
  • Ease of loading also plays a large factor when it comes to an average fuel consumption of only 12 to 18 Gallons Per Hour

Production

  • K-Tec scrapers are able to load, transport, and then place the most amount of material per pass in a timely manner
  • K-Tec scrapers can carry up to 50% more material while being able to maintain equal cycle times while using a similar power unit
  • A scraper that carries over 50% more material will cost more, but your additional production will make up the capital cost difference and will ultimately make you more money
  • When K-Tec scrapers are matched with the correct power-unit for a specific jobsite, this results in an advantage over other earthmoving equipment
