A yard scraper is another useful tool to clear snow. Just like the snow plough, this attachment is can be mounted to the forks of different types of machines. But what is the difference between these two attachments?

The snow plough can clear snow both to the left or to the right, thanks to the adjustable sweep angle. A yard scraper can't be adjusted and pushes the snow straight ahead.

Do you work in the agricultural sector and are you looking for a versatile attachment that can clear snow among other things? In that case, opt for a yard scraper.
