Overview

Originally designed by a road contractor for the construction industry, the Cat® TS185 Towed Scraper delivers outstanding performance and legendary durability. High-strength, abrasion-resistant steel in the scraper bowl minimizes wear. The rugged hitch, tongue, and structural design ensure long life in the toughest job site conditions. The exclusive walking-beam axle provides a smoother ride for the operator and a variable cutting edge angle for unmatched productivity. Designed to be pulled by Cat Track-Type Tractors or Challenger™ Tractors, the Cat TS185 Towed Scraper raises the standard.
