With the option of 1000/50R25 tires, K-Tec's 28-cu.-yd. Model 1228 towed scraper has the ability to become an exceptionally low-ground-pressure unit. A single 1228 scraper requires a 300-hp pulling tractor, and tandem pans require 400 hp. The cutting edge is 12 ft. wide and gate opens 78 ins. The maker says the 1228 is tough enough to be push-loaded by a dozer. The 1228 carries 75% of its maximum load of 68,000 lbs. on the rear axle and 25% on the tongue. Shipping weight is 26,000 lbs.
