K-Tec Earthmovers released a new 1228ADT scraper model to reach a broader range of earthmoving professionals. The 28 cubic yard scraper has been one of K-Tec’s most popular models for years, but now K-Tec has enabled a system to mount onto an ADT chassis, in addition to agriculture or construction tractors.
Contractors who already have a 25 or 30-Ton ADT in their fleet, can easily convert the hauler to pull a K-Tec 1228ADT for a unit that can self-load, transport, and eject material with a single engine running and sole operator.
The operator can use responsive joystick control functionality inside the ADT. A digital display screen exclusive to K-Tec is also included in the cab for visual operating details, tracking load count productivity, and troubleshoot serviceability. The ability to travel 30mph-plus down haul roads improves cycle time performance.
K-Tec recognized the significant number of 25- and 30-ton trucks on the market, and contractors could improve their production and versatility. K-Tec has attached its line of large earthmoving scrapers to 40-ton trucks since 2008, so the use of a smaller scraper on a smaller ADT was a logical move.
K-Tec CEO, Russ Goossen states, “We are excited to offer an efficient earthmoving solution for contractors, municipalities, and counties, with smaller job site equipment to experience a construction grade K-Tec scraper and its productive benefits.”
