The Guinness World Records' record for the largest parade of pickup trucks numbered 451, achieved by Ram (USA) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, USA, on 18 April 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest parade of tow trucks; it consisted of 324 tow trucks and was organized by Worldwide Equipment Sales Tow Trucks for Tots (USA). The trucks participated in a parade from Joliet to Bridgeview, Illinois, USA, on 13 November 2011.
K-Tec Earthmovers has just launched its latest and largest construction pull scraper for massive scale earthmoving. The K-Tec 1263 ADT is the world's largest earthmoving scraper available on the market today.
With a heaped capacity of 63 cubic yards (ISO) and empty tare weight of 61,000 lbs, the K-Tec 1263 ADT is built for massive dirt moving projects.
Designed to be pulled with a 40Ton+ Articulated Dump Truck, this scraper is ready to help contractors substantially reduce their dirt moving costs and gain a massive advantage in the earthmoving industry.
The 1263ADT scraper by K-Tec Earthmovers Inc. offers a capacity of 63 cubic yards of soil, an increase of nine yards over K-Tec's previous model, the 1254ADT, which claimed the record in 2009.
While holding the world capacity record is a feather in K-Tec's cap, the company's founder and president Ken Rempel notes the new model resulted from a thorough analysis of the older 1254ADT using strain gauge testing technology to complete a real-life stress test analysis.
"Our earthmoving scrapers provide an advantage to drive down the cost per cubic yard," says Rempel. "Contractors can carry more material in the scraper bowls, resulting in less trips to the cut and greater production efficiency."
A truck hauling a single scraper provides fuel savings over two trucks hauling smaller capacity models, he says. It's also more efficient than multiple scrapers arranged in sequence.
K-Tec suggests the newest model will achieve the greatest economies of scale in projects ranging from 250,000 cubic yards and up.
Suggested applications include: roadbuilding, land transformation projects, ranch acreages, cattle feedlots, airport runway expansions, oil field preparation, coal processing, mine reclamation, stripping overburden and transporting rock.
