Mud scrapers for rolling basket attachments
Summers Manufacturing is adding internal mud scrapers to its rolling basket attachments for tillage equipment. This new, patent-pending design increases the performance of Summers’ rolling baskets, allowing them to effectively break clods, mix residue, and level the soil profile in most field conditions.
Without scrapers, rolling baskets can accumulate mud, which adds significant weight that could cause damage to the unit. Also, rolling baskets are unable to move dirt properly if the paddles are not kept clean.
Featuring a three-piece configuration, the mud scrapers are mounted inside the rolling basket and can easily be removed when not needed.
The mud scrapers are offered as standard equipment on Summers’ complete line of rolling basket attachments, offered in 6-, 8-, and 10-foot widths. The baskets are used in conjunction with three-bar mounted harrows on the Summers’ Supercoulter and separate on the 2510 DT. The scrapers can also be installed on a variety of tillage implements offered by other manufacturers. A 10-foot section of mud scrapers is $2,036.
