F-89 Heavy Duty Scraper For Year Round Maintenance

The Model F-89 has been tested and proven under the severest conditions by men experienced in the truck scraper field. It has been designed with three aims in mind: first, to provide a strong, rugged piece of equipment which would stand up under the most strenuous treatment down through the years; second, to provide a scraper which would be adaptable to different makes and types of trucks; and most important, to design a scraper which can be easily serviced and maintained in the field. The new F-89 has more than fulfilled these requirements.
