Photo Western Wheeled Scraper

Picked up this Western Wheeled Scraper today. From what I know about the company, this scraper is pre 1900 because it only says Western Wheeled Scraper on the castings. I would be interested in catalog pictures, history, usage and general knowledge about this type of scraper. I believe there should be a seat and foot rest on the front for a driver. Also interested in pictures of how the hitch should be configured as this one was converted for tractor hitching at some point. Also interested in pictures of the rear operator platform area. Nothing bent or too messed up on this scraper, just setting funny on the trailer because of width.

Greg,

We have somekind of similair one with the same frame.

Watch inside in the center of the huge rearwheels the one of us is having and patent date there.
Coult be the one of yours also......

Most of these little horse Scrapers are convert in the years to tractor pull ones.

Chris

Please excuse me for highjacking this thread but I have an old grader also and I too would like to have some information about it. I've seen one other like it for sale on Kijiji and a youtube video of one being used but I can't find anything else. I can't find the manufacturer's name on it anywhere and there isn't any paint left anywhere on it. Here's the youtube video.

I would be very appreciative of any information anyone could tell me about it.

Greg,

Here is the one of us.

It is have somekind the same frame as the one of yours.

First picture taken stand possition.

Upper section tells Patent.
And left side tells 29 , 1908 or 1909

Can make the Patent letters sharper with picture.

So you shoult watch inside the centers of the huge rear wheels.



M.Canute,

Can not help you with the one of yours because your model looks different then the one of us.

Nice video.

Chris,

M. Canute The grader in the Youtube video is a Canada Ingot Iron grader
It was made in Guelph Ont. They started making road equipment in about 1907-1930's.
The grader is at the Simcoe County museum at Barrie Ont. the company is still operating.
