Because of its portability, the Scraper Systems Model 440 is the most versatile snow removal unit we offer. Yet it performs just as fast and efficiently as our other permanently-mounted models. And it is manufactured with the same high-quality, heavy duty structural steel design and receives the same 3-step durable all-weather finishing process with machinery-grade rust prohibitive enamel.
But what distinguishes the 440 Model from our other snow removal systems is that rather than mounting on permanent concrete footers, it is mounted to a heavy duty rollable chassis frame. As a result, it is a fully-portable unit that can be repositioned to different locations within your facility, or easily disassembled and relocated to an entirely different facility if necessary. Removable 2,000 lb. concrete stabilizing ballasts on either side of the drive-through frame make sure the unit is securely anchored in place while operating on your site. The 440 model makes it easy to reclaim space in your shipping yard after the threat of winter snow has passed for the season.
Like all of our Scraper System models, the drive-under frame measures a generous 15 ft. across, while accommodating truck trailer heights from 9 ft. to 14 1/2 ft. The plow assembly is powered by our Harrington 1/2 ton extreme-duty 110V electric chain hoist controllable from the operator’s station mounted on the driver’s side beam column or by the optional radio remote control system.
The deep-V plow blade is over 13 ft. wide and discharges deep, heavy snow to both sides of the trailer. This removes more snow more quickly than other designs. Even in uneven terrain, the pliable rubber edge of the plow blade remains in constant contact with the truck trailer tops thanks to our Accu-Track guide system. And it is safe to use on translucent roofs.
The unit comes pre-wired from our factory, and most installations can be completed in less than a day. Scraper Systems provides employee training for safe operation of the snow removal system.
