By running your tractors drawbar pin horizontally thru the hitch’s two ears, your scraper can be mounted closer to the tractors rear axle, which is better weight distribution between both tractor axles. The drawbars vertical pin is mounted 22” behind the horizontal drawbar pin, which provides you with a superior turning radius.
Over engineered with higher strength material and additional support gussets. Heavy steel bulk head and ridged hose stand keep hydraulic lines safe and secure.
Round structures, such as the heavy wall pipe that Ashland uses in its Front Section, handle torsional loads (twisting loads) much better than square or rectangle tubing. With rounded pipe, the stress of your load is displaced around the entire circumference of the structure — with any other style, stress is amplified in the corners and seams. Concentrated stress can cause the tubing to fail in these areas, making our Front Section pipe a superior design.
Vertically mounted 5.5″ friction welded trunnion mount cylinders with a nitrobar rod are attached directly over the blade set. These cylinders are mounted in a nearly vertical position so that when the operator retracts the cylinder one inch, the blade moves one inch. This enables you to maintain greater control of engine RPMs and ground speed. By moving faster the dirt continues to “boil,” developing bigger and quicker loads.
Ashland utilizes a thick walled 16” round front section pipe for the 2311E. The Ktec hydraulic accumulator provides a smoother ride by absorbing shock loads while transporting fully loaded scrapers. This adds protection for both the scraper and the tractor without the need for any additional plumbing.
The Pole is box built with an internal skeleton vs. formed halves to increase rigidity. The tapered trailing arm has excellent depth of frame near the front pipe to reduce failure at the corners. And with an elevated Front Section pipe, operators can take advantage of unmatched visibility and greater clearance while loading piles or in areas with heavy debris such as tall grass or brush.
The 2311E scraper has a spacious front opening for material to easily fall forward and be leveled out by the blade while ejecting. The large friction welded hydraulic cylinders for maximum clamping force. The side of Ashland Aprons have close tolerance to the Bowls sidewalls — this tight fit ensures that debris won’t bend the Apron inward as the ejector moves forward.
The 2311E has a 23 cu. yd. heaped capacity and 15.3 cu. yd. struck capacity, with a dual plated floor system. This system consists of two heavy plates that support both the top and bottom edges of the moldboard, ensuring that the floor will remain straight and strong when coming in contact with large objects such as stumps or rocks.
The scraper incorporates a five piece blade set secured with grade eight bolts and nuts. The protruding center blade extends longer than the neighboring corner blades to bite into material
Hydraulic System :
The 2311E requires three hydraulic remotes to operate the machine. One circuit controls the lift cylinders. The second circuit controls the apron and the third circuit operated the ejector system. This allows the operator full control of all the functions independently.
We mount the ejector cylinder low on the ejector wall, close to the floor, so the machine pushes right where the load is sitting. The rear framework and Pushoff face are a completely welded system. When the pushoff is fully forward it runs even to the top of the cutting edge. The bottom 1/3 of the ejector wall is bent so when fully forward is nearly vertical which helps material to be unloaded.
Need to push your scraper with a dozer? You will appreciate the extra distance that Ashland’s pushbar extension provides. Because our lift cylinders are mounted in a nearly vertical position, you won’t see increased pressure within the hydraulic lines while pushing with a dozer.
The multi-position rear axle design provides the flexibility to position the rear tires either in-line for increased flotation and better compaction or with 8” of offset for less rolling resistance. So, regardless of your soil condition, there is a tire package available to keep you floating on the soil and moving forward. A super capacity pass-through hub system is integrated on Ashland scrapers which allow easy tire service and maintenance. The rear tires on this scraper are 23.5 x 25 radials.
