Wheel-Tractor Scrapers

When you add a Cat wheel-tractor scraper to your mining fleet, you gain a versatile tool that can provide value in multiple applications — from reclamation and primary mining to building roads and making the initial box-cut. They work as selective mining tools, so you can pick specific areas in the mine and quickly send the scraper fleet to work. In the right conditions, such as those with a low percentage of rock or moderate haul distances, they can actually cut your operating costs. No matter the task at hand, Cat scrapers are a highly flexible, cost-cutting addition to your fleet.
