Installation of Scraper Systems Equipment
Efficient design for minimal installation time
Scraper Systems Truck Top Snow Plows are designed so that field assembly and installation time and expense are minimal. Two (110 & 330) or three (440) major sub-assemblies are shipped or delivered to your site. All major mechanical components are pre-mounted at our factory, as are all electrical components. Minimal on-plant wiring is required. The customer is responsible for providing 110V/15 amp single phase electric service to the unit.
- Scraper Systems delivers, assembles and installs the machine at your site.
- Customer is responsible for installation and freight. Scraper Systems provides a field specialist to assist, advise and train.
Installations can be customized to suit your requirements such as wider spans over driveways or special fits for doorways. Please inquire about your special needs.
Scraper Systems Portable Model 440
Because there are no concrete footers required, our portable unit is simply an assembly and placement project rather than a construction project. Typically the 440 can be assembled, placed, and tested in less than one day. The main beams with base plates are simply bolted to the structural steel tubing rollable chassis, instead of concrete footers. The weight of the unit itself plus the (2) 2,000 lb. concrete ballasts provide sufficient stability for the biggest of snow storms. An attachable tow bar allows you to move it with a pick-up truck, forklift or whatever. The ballasts contain a lifting hook for removal before moving the unit. Each of the (4) dual wheel sets includes a screw jack assembly to lower the wheels for moving the unit and to raise the wheels during operation.
Scraper Systems Semi-Permanent Model 110
This model comes with 18 in. square base plates welded on the main support beams. Concrete footers must be constructed and poured on site prior to the unit installation. To facilitate this process, Scraper Systems includes a kit consisting of footer design drawings, anchor bolts and bolt patterns. The customer can hire a local contractor for the concrete work, or Scraper Systems can provide this service in advance of the installation of the unit. If the customer prefers, Scraper Systems would sub-contract the concrete work to a local contractor of the customer's choice. The concrete footers work can be done in one day. Assembly and installation can typically be completed in less than one day. Contingencies such as rock or debris removal and spoils removal off site may increase time and expense.
Scraper Systems Permanent Model 330
The Model 330 snow removal unit's structural steel frame is installed and imbedded in-ground directly into 30 in. diameter by minimum 4 ft. deep concrete footers. The unit is assembled on the ground while the footer holes and 18 in. bollard holes are drilled. The completely assembled unit is then lifted and placed into the footer holes. Concrete is poured into the holes cementing the unit in place. This can typically be accomplished in one day. Contingencies such as rock or debris removal and spoils removal off site may increase time and expense.
Tips for Locating the Unit on Your Site
- Allow straight lane for truck travel at least 55 ft. on both entrance and exit of the machine.
- Select a fairly level paved or compacted crushed stone area.
- Choose a spot where removed snow can be conveniently deposited and where melting snow will not migrate towards the drive-thru area.
