Scraper for Quad

    Thinking of buying a Quad. Just wondering where is the best place to buy a scraper for the Quad. We need it to clean down some indoor passage ways where there is no tractor access. We already have automatic scrapers round the farm but not everywhere. Something quick attach would be important. I am in Co.Tipperary.

    Unless you're buying the quad anyway...

    Would you consider one of those lawnmower conversions, where you put a scraper blade on the front of an old ride-on lawnmower?

    Or maybe even something like this:

    Keep the quad out of the sh1t. It will only rot the chassis. As siamsa said , look to the lawn mower option. You dont want to have to go putting up strip wires in the spring or autumn and spend a bit of time removing at scraper

    I know most lads selling them are looking for stupid money for them these days but would the likes of a simple old cabless yoke be able to fit into the sheds? A MF 35 or old Ford or similar?

    Would one of those scrapers be able for FYM? I don't have slats, all on straw bed. We keep a passage clear along the feed rail where they stand but where they lie down gets compacted and needs the forks to shift it. Even if it could shift piles I'd forked out it might be a purchase I could justify.

    Anything would be better than a hand scrapper anyway. I was at the physio on Friday for a trapped nerve in my shoulder. Happens around this time every year as I start scrapping yards and spronging silage
