A scraper can be defined as a piece of heavy equipment used for earthmoving to load and transport unconsolidated materials or grading on a short distance.
The scrapers can be divided into two categories: scrapers pushed by a bulldozer or self-propelled scrapers. There also exist twin engined scrapers, whose some of them work together and are known as push–pull scrapers.
More generally scrapers are very powerful pieces of equipment and so able to move fast. They are also equipped with a skip to recover the materials during the scraping process.
The first wheeled motorized scraper was invented in 1930 by Robert Gilmore LeTourneau and then developed by the Wabco company. The Euclide and the Caterpillar companies had also been working steadily the following years to develop their own models of scraper.
