Got to use my and my brothers 1470tk case for the first time
today, pulled a 10ft sheeps foot and a 12ft box scraper hooked
together, I didn't take any pictures unfortunately. We were
using it where my dad is setting up hog buildings, they were
pulling it with a 135hp kubota yesterday, and could only pull it
3.5mph, they laughed at me when I brought the 1470 but I
pulled it a little over 5 mph, and was pulling it deeper. The
guys who usually pull it said they were suprised how it did
because they try and put 250-275hp on it. What do you guys
run on a sheeps foot or box scraper. Hope I get pics tomorow.

I am not sure what you are asking, sometimes you say and, like you are pulling a scraper and a packer, then sometimes you say Or, like one or the other.

A 1470 apparently did well pulling whatever you were pulling. I don't do that type of work so I should have said it earlier, I just farm. A 1470 is a Large tractor so should be able to do what you need it to do.

I pulled a 10ft sheeps foot and 12ft box scraper together, all at
the same time, first time really using a tractor for construction
work for me, usually we just use them for farming.

Here's a picture similar to both, a sheeps foot is a packer. I will try to get pictures tomorrow if I get time.

Yeah, it is suppose to pack the dirt tight, and then the box scraper behind acts like a drag and smoothes it all out.

In all my years in the excavating/earthmoving business, I've never seen or heard of pulling a scraper blade behind a sheepsfoot and can't imagine what good it does. I'm not trying to be a smart azz, just don't see it doing anything but burning fuel.
We always used a Cat 815 or 825 compactor with a blade on it. If we used a pull sheepsfoot there would be a dozer working the dirt as it was dumped.

When you get close to finish grade a blade after the packer takes off the humps as you go, beats the heck out of trying to cut them off with a uni after you reach required compaction. Sure makes a nice surface to grade for laying concrete
