11 yard scraper

Have a 11 yard Wabco scraper that was originally self propeled but was converted to a pull type and the self loading chains removed. It will only load about half full and push dirt ahead of it. Why will it only load half? Is it something to do with the angle of the cutting edge. I think there has been a lot of these converted. Any info will helpful.

Rick most self loading scrapers have a sliding bottom, does yours? The andle of the Cutting edge is also a little different than the angle of an apron scraper. IF the elevatore motor and chains are still around Id have to say that would be the best fix. Was it electrically operated ore hydraulcic. Either way it could be converted from electric to hydraulic, or if it required too much flow it could get a smaller elevator motor like on a 412 Dresser. The elevator on our 762 went out at work and we tried loading like an open bowl and it would make the sliding bottom bypass fluid.

Rick, I have a six yard Crown 600 pull type scraper, and have had a similar experience. Granted I've only had twenty minutes to play with it so far. Coul you post a description, or better yet a picture of your Wabco? Also what type of soil or you working in? Is it sticky like clay (or wet)? Or is it sandy? I have a feeling that soil moisture has a lot to do with it, but have no scraper experience to back that, only my experience with disc harrows and plows on the farm. What are you pulling your scraper with? Happy Scraping! Jeff
