    Default Digmor 76" Industrial Box Scraper

    I just picked up a Digmor Heavy duty hydraulic ripper box scraper. Anyone know the weight of this thing? Can't find much information about it. Just a little ticked off that my fron loader wouldn't pick it up. I have an LS G3033 and the loader is supposed to lift 1600 pounds. I would guess my bucket weighs under 400....so I should have 1200 pounds left. I cant see the box scraper weighing more than that.

    I spent some time searching and have found very little about Digmor Equipment and Engineering Co. on the web.

    It's almost like they don't exist any more. I did find a few photos of the box scraper. Looks to be a heavy duty unit and the way the ripper teeth roll down into position is unique, don't think I have seen that on any other box blade.

    Yeah, it is heavy duty...a lot like a Gannon. The picture you posted is a little different. Here is a link to the one I have
    -lot-2060-jpg

    Everything on it is thick. The only information I can find online about it is PATENT info.
    Kind of a neat design. Can't wait to clean it up....sandblast it maybe and paint/powdercoat it. Then see how it works. Hopefully my tractor has enough huevos to pull it.

    I could be wrong but it looks like the box blade that used to come on John Deere 300B skip loaders. Pretty heavy duty unit, though I can't see it weighing more than 1100-1200 lbs.

    Looks like a nice unit and very heavy duty. You will LOVE the hydraulic scarifiers. It looks similar to the one I have but must be more heavy duty as mine only weighs 1,000lbs, although, I have the low profile design whereas the standard one is 1,200lbs.

    It makes excellent ballast!

    Piston,
    How wide is yours? Looks like your has a similar amount of metal and your is a thousand pounds. If mine is 1200 pounds I could see why the loader wouldn't lift it all the way up. I just don't see 1200 pounds of steel there. My front bucket is 66" and I can't even see it weighing 400 pounds but it could.
    I like the way the box scraper is setup. I need to check out the hydraulic scarifier ram and disconnect my backhoe unit to see how it works. 3pt is supposed to lift 1800lb/1433lb@2ft so hopefully it lifts it.

    It is 78" wide, so very similar in size to yours. If you want to measure your steel thickness for reference here are my specs...
    http://www.landpride.com/ari/attach/...s/305-054s.pdf

    I really wanted the highback version simply for more weight, but just couldn't find one used. I bought mine used as well for a third of the new price.
    I imagine your specs are probably in line with the highback version in the link I posted, although note that it is 84" and not 78" like mine is.
    Your tractor is going to have it's hands full with that box blade! Just remember if it is too much with all the scarifiers down, you can always lift a few up and only use the middle ones if needed. Does yours also have a hinged rear blade? I can bolt mine in the "fixed" position but I've never done so, I find the swinging rear blade pretty helpful in allowing me to dig in more, but then again, I have nothing to compare it to
    Roger,
    I paid $1300 for mine shipped just as reference.

    Piston - Bolting the hinged blade down (or clamping it up like I do) really helps when grading and spreading new gravel, especially if it has more rock than fines. If you don't, the blade flops around causing a ripple affect.

    I'll give it a shot. I may really like it in the fixed position you never know till you try right!
