I'm starting to move sandy loam up from the pond to where I'm going to pour a slab for my workshop. I was introduced to what dirt pan/ scraper was by looking up some old post on here.

I'm wondering how realistic it is to hope to find something like the overland scraper or something similar to pull behind my 641 for a fair/cheap price?

If that's a 641 Ford I don't know if they make one small enough for that tractor to effectively use. Lot of those in our area and the smallest ones I've seen would need a good 80-100 HP tractor. Good luck.

I have a 10' Speed Mover that I pull with my 4020 and it is an excellent combo in my opinion. I had a pole shed put up a couple of years ago and used it to level the site (had a transit available) and when I finished there was no more than 1" difference in elevation anywhere on the site. But, not knowing how far you have to move the dirt, not sure a speed mover would work very well. I don't think your 641 would handle anything bigger than maybe a 6'.

Why would the scraper in that ad need a 3 point hitch? It shows 2 wheels in the rear and ONE pole out front for a hitch point.

On the pan shown, the three point drawbar controls the digging depth and the hydraulics provide the dumping.

I pulled one just like that with an LA Case and a 4 wheeled version like that with a late model A JD.
Built this dam and pond with the A. And this is red clay soil.

Find a good 3 pt rear scoop. You can move a lot of dirt in a little time.

Dave,
I use a bucket behind my 1964 Ford 4000.
Works great!

I have that same Ford scoop.
They are pretty handy.
I used to have a Dearborn scoop behind my 2N and moved a lot of dirt with it.
The later scoops are reversable which makes them more versatile.

There is smomething called a fresno, or tumble bug, or even a rotary scraper. When it is pulled it fills with dirt, then dumped. For the price of scrap metal I have one if you want to drive to California. Stan

You could borrow my son's- he got it in August so it's like new. Takes a pretty big tractor to pull it though- he needs an Oliver 1950-T on it to pull it through the living room carpet... That's some pretty tuff stuff to dig...
