To reduce dependency on tractor brakes and allow for shorter stopping distances, a new scraper brake option is available for John Deere’s 18- and 21-cubic-yard pull scraper models. Equipped with fixed-mount, dual-opposition, self-retracting pistons and heavy-duty seals for long life, the scraper brakes are activated by the tractor’s brake pedal, which results in seamless operation. Steel hydraulic lines are routed along the mainframe of the scraper, delivering improved responsiveness and reliability versus rubber hoses. The brakes are effective in both single and tandem scraper jobs, and are approved for applications in which ISO, ASAE and MSHA standards are required.
