If you're a contractor with a serious amount of earth to move, John Deere has the answer: the new 2112E fixed-blade ejector scraper. Combined with a John Deere 9020 Series scraper tractor with a short drawbar, this massive scraper moves up to 42 cubic yards of material per cycle.
The 2112E scraper can be pulled as a single unit, or in tandem. It provides improved styling and rear visibility, as well as an industrial-strength yoke-type cast hitch for substantially increased durability and reliability. The 2112E also features the lowest tongue weight ratio on the market, which reduces drawbar weight and lessens the load on the tractor's rear axle, resulting in less wear and tear on the equipment.
Like all John Deere scrapers, the 2112E features a box-welded tongue design with a round, high-clearance torque cross-tube for maximum visibility and easier loading and unloading; a built-in rear bumper; a fixed-blade, front-pivot design that provides the best response time for controlling cutting depth; and a single-cylinder, six-roller, jam-free ejection system. Its offset wheel design with large radial tires maintains industry-leading flotation. Tough Â¾-inch zinc-coated steel hydraulic lines, fittings, and hoses prevent corrosion and leakage and are protected by shields to allow overflow material to slide off the scraper. High front transport clearance provides easier unloading and transportation. The 2112E can be direct loaded or top loaded if needed.
Another new feature of the 2112E is a hydraulic accumulator, which removes hydraulic pressure spikes created while traveling over rough haul roads. Removing these pressure spikes helps reduce the stress to the scraper mainframe, further enhancing durability and reliability.
