Yard scraper for manure & slurry

For the earth moving machine commonly called a scraper, see motor scraper.

A Yard Scraper is a agricultural machine that is used for for scraping up manure in open stock yards and pushing it into a slurry pit or a muck spreader.

The attachment consists of a frame to mount on the Three-point Linkage, with a curved or 3 section blade attached with a flexible rubber edge to rub on the yard and act like a squeegee. The blades on some models are pivoted to flip over to work bi-directional or direct the muck to one side or the other.


The unit is mounted on the 3 point linkage of a small tractor and reversed up the yard pushing the slurry / muck into a heap or towards a ramp to the pit.
