    Auto Grease - Optional on the Versatile Scraper Special Tractors is an auto greasing system. This system is located on the left side of the tractor near the articulation point. This electronically controlled unit can be set to grease in half hour intervals from 30 minutes up to five hours. The auto-greasing systems reduces maintenance time. The ability to grease during operation results in the best possible grease distribution across the bearing surface; this results in reduce component wear for moving parts and creates an effective barrier against moisture and dirt. The automatic greasing systems reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

    Hydraulics - The rigorous demands of scraper work require a reliable hydraulic system. The Versatile Scraper Special tractor is available with six hydraulic circuits and hi-flow hydraulic with a flow rate of 106 GPM (401 L/min). Electro-hydraulics are ergonomically designed for both comfort and convenience and allow for finger-tip operation of hydraulic functions.

    The frames on Versatile scraper tractors are among the heaviest in the industry, designed to manage horsepower and torque without the risk of frame damage.

    Frame construction - The frame is manufactured from thick high-grade steel plate to ensure structural integrity even under extreme conditions. The main bearing at the articulation point is oversized to enhance reliability. The drawbar pull point is immediately behind the articulation point which provides maximum pulling power when making tight turns.

    Oscillation and Articulation - The flexibility provided by the subframe and drag link assembly permits up to 15° of oscillation on each side (30° total) as the tractor moves over uneven terrain. Large 3.5" (89 mm) steering cylinders articulate the tractor smoothly and quickly. A maximum articulation angle of 42° means a tight turnaround radius of less than 16' (4.9 m).

    Fuel capacity and weight distribution - Two fuel tanks provide a total capacity of 400 U.S. gallons (1514 L). The two fuel tanks are connected with a crossover tube for convenient refueling on either side of the tractor. The tanks are located near the center of the tractor to maintain the front-to-rear weight distribution. As the fuel level drops, the front-to-rear weight ratio remains the same so weight distribution is not affected, regardless of fuel level.

    Outboard Planetary Axles - All models feature a large, reliable heavy-duty planetary final drive to provide long service with heavily ballasted tractors and big implements. Large bearings support the planetary hubs on the axle housings. They are built with new extra heavy-duty axle tubes and planetaries capable of standing up to heavy weights and capable of handling increased bending loads associated with wide dual or triple wheel options.

    Outboard planetary axles deliver all available horsepower through a large, precision machined floating sun gear. The planetary hubs are suspended on large diameter bearings mounted directly to the axle tubes. The load is supported by the axle housing assembly and not by the drive train components. All Versatile Scraper Special tractors feature reliable final drives that deliver horsepower where it counts; at the drawbar.

    The planetary axles remain on the tractor during routine maintenance, limiting downtime. Daily inspections are easy with a quick visual check of the axle oil level indicators. The gears can also be reversed to extend the wear life.

    HQ Cab

    Standard Cab Offering - The scraper special tractors take advantage of the class leading Versatile HQ Cab. With over 85.9 sq. ft.

    Track System - The Versatile DeltaTrack Scraper Special tractor uses a positive drive system to reduced wear, friction and heat. Track slippage is eliminated by interlocking track lugs into the drive wheel. The DeltaTrack keeps 7 lugs engaged with the drive wheel at all times to eliminate slippage between the track and drive wheel. The DeltaTrack uses the largest drive lugs (8-1/2" (216 mm)) in the industry to maximize operating life.

    Idler Wheels - The large idler wheels used on the Versatile DeltaTrack Scraper Special tractor improve the approach angle to reduce the risk of “submarining” in muddy conditions. The large idler wheels and track angle help reduce the tracks horsepower requirements.

    Drive Sprocket - A large 80.7° single piece cast drive sprocket provides a larger wrap angle than competitive track units to help increase track life.

    Midrollers - The large midrollers on the Versatile DeltaTrack Scraper Special tractor system are not directly inline with axle or drive system components to improve the ride and service life of the tractor. Polyurethane coating dramatically reduces midroller wear and maintenance requirements compared to competitive rubber midrollers.
