That?s cool I?ve always been infatuated with scrapers I have the book for the tractor part of that model John Deere . Saw some interesting scrapers yesterday working on the interstate .

Looks like that would be a lot easier on the operator although not as maneuverable as the two wheel type

Neat looking old paddle scraper ! I spent many many hours on a cat 627f. I owe my lower back problems to that stage in my career !

I remember seeing a Deere scraper similar to that one in 1962 when they put grass greens in the local golf course. I dont remember it being a two banger like the 840.

They used that type on a new road near me.
I believe they were using them for long hauls, like
3 or more miles, because they were supposed to be fast.
Just my opinion

Good looking paddlewagon. I'm not sure it's an antique just yet, though. According to this article, the 760A was introduced in '67.

I grew up operating scrapers, mainly International 55s, which with their unsynchronized transmissions and cable controls were real brutes for a fifteen-year old. I always thought the four-wheeled tractors on the JD scrapers looked goofy compared to our big articulated IH, LeTourneau and Euclid scrapers. My dad had a JD paddlewagon for a while, but sold it to buy the 55s long before I was old enough to operate it.

Yes sir, ran 627's before, also a 619 elevator type. I usually tried to stay on the D8K, push loading, those old behemoths were something, also ran TS14's, 627's were more productive than those, none of this was good for ones back LOL !

According to a Google search, there's a Walt Taylor Excavating in Solsberry, IN.

Solsberry is about 15 miles SW of Bloomington, IN. & 20 miles NW of me.

All these guys reminiscing about running scrapers, the summer before I started hauling readymix concrete the local paper had a picture of a big scraper, a Cat if I remember correctly, front wheel parked right on the roof of a full size Ford 4-door sedan, 'course the roof was pushed down clear to the ground! Somehow the lady that got tired of waiting for the construction zone traffic signal and pulled out in front of the speeding loaded scraper was still alive, trapped in her crushed car, Jaws of Life or the cutting torch on the service truck got her out. Even when I had to run down the right of way with my little 55,000# readymix truck I gave those scrapers ALL the room they wanted.

Hard to beat those Quad trac's with 3 17 yard pull scrapers for moving dirt.
