Title: Earthmoving with Pull-Type Scrapers: Maximizing Efficiency and Profits

Description: Man has been striving to move dirt more efficiently since the shovel was the primary piece of equipment used to shape the earth. Today’s contractors continue that quest as margins are continually squeezed from multiple directions. We’ll tell the story of how a tool originally pulled by livestock has evolved into the most efficient way to move large amounts of dirt on a surprising variety of jobs. If lower initial equipment investment, significantly reduced labor requirements, and less overall cost per cubic yard of material moved sounds good to you, this is a can’t-miss session.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the evolution of the pull-type scraper and the economics
2. Learn about the configuring process for varying jobsite conditions
3. Find out about the future and industry trends
