Model 950 XL 2 - Ejector Scraper
Your legacy is your future. For generations, farmers have been using the 950XL2 to maintain and develop their land for higher yield, expanded acreage and water management. Built on that same success, the 950XL2 continues to evolve to meet the demands of farms today and tomorrow.
Ashland hitches are made by inserting a steel trust block into the neck of a steel, “C” shaped plate. The yoke system and trust collar are then placed in their correct positions to be welded 360 degrees around. This design gives Ashland scrapers a full range of motion from the hitch and maximum potential pull-through to the back side of the pole or the spindle base plate.
The scraper’s front section is completed with a 2-3/4” ball set. Having a ball and socket set allows you a complete range of motion in a confined space. With a 22” pull point, less weight transfer will occur from the back tires, which allows the scraper to pull across surfaces more smoothly.
The front sections on Ashland scrapers have a long, paneled gooseneck design which allows the front section to grab onto the scraper at a better angle. More importantly, this design allows for a greater range of motion for the scraper’s dolly wheels. A longer front section places the dolly wheels farther away from the “fall zone” (77” away), so the wheels don’t interfere with the machine’s ejection process.
The maximum stroke of the 4” x 13” cylinder and strategic pivot points, allows the apron to open to 55” for fast and easy ejection. Ashland scrapers also have a tight tolerance between the apron and side walls, which prevent material from wedging in gaps and eventually bending the apron and sidewalls.
Standard dual plated flooring supports the 9.5 cu. yd. heaped capacity. The 950XL2 utilize a set of three blades. The middle blade (the frost bit) is the biggest at 3/4” x 8” x 54”. By designing a middle blade that juts out from the bowl, the scraper employs better suction and a better blade angle, which enables the scraper to collect more material with less horsepower. The scraper’s side blades are both 6” long and “L” shaped. These blades are set back 2” and are bolted to the floor and sidewalls. This design gives strength and protection to the sidewalls by absorbing the force of hitting rocks and stumps that are along the sides of the cutting path, thus preventing wear on the scraper’s sides. Behind the blades are a 3/4” steel plate (the frog) with punched holes.
The 950 uses a 4” x 50” cylinder with a 3” rod to extend the large push off assembly. The rear frame of the push off has a wide stance of 48.5”. The front of the push off is 44” wider than the back. By designing a wide push off area, the scraper can more easily eject an unbalanced load.
To prevent dirt from spilling out the back, there is a 22” tall headache rack that angles 45-degree forward from the bowl. This allows dirt to cycle over itself and fill both the front and back of the scraper evenly.
The rear tires are a 16.9 x 24, 10-ply ANS tire, or All-Non-Skid. The front dolly wheel tires are a 16.5 x 16.1, 10-ply ANS tire. Both sets of tires are diamond pattern designed for slopes, terraces, site scraping, and road making.
