    Default Tire scraper?

    Well i now have a large loader tire that blew out on us and now going to use that tire to make a tire scraper. Its a 23.5-25 bias tire. Im going to make pushable with a skidsteer and pullable with a 3 point. Looking for ideas on their frame ive seen a few online but seeing if anyone else uses them. Mostly they are used for manure but i was thinking it would be good for snow and cleaning up slop on some roads

    If you cut the sidewalls off, then you can unroll the tread for your scaper. Then it could be attached to any straight blade, or even a straight blade with rounded corners.

    Using Circumference = πD, you actually can make a pretty long strip.

    Well im thinking of cutting it in half to have two scrapers, then cut one side sidewall off to scrape and keep it rounded to collect. Heres a few pictures im thinking about doing.

    A reciprocating saw would do it.

    Reciprocating saw or I've seen people use a chainsaw with an old chain.
