EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES (SCRAPER)
The 613CS Scraper, used in conjunction with the 613CWD Water Distributor, provides the Army with the capabil-
ity to efficiently build roads, airstrips, and other engineering assets in a wide variety of geographic, environmental,
and tactical situations.
The scraper self-loads, hauls, dumps, and spreads earth, thereby providing grading capability from start to finish of
The machine is capable of all critical earthmoving operations in a degraded mode of operation (i.e., without ROPS/

Refer to Equipment Data (Scraper) at the end of this work package for machine dimensions, weights, fluid
capacities, and other miscellaneous equipment data.
The scraper consists of two sections: front tractor section and rear elevating scraper section. These may be sepa-
rated (sectionalization) to allow external air transport by CH-47 helicopter.
All parts and tools needed for sectionalization are contained within an ISU-60 container. This container also has
stowage space for parts that are removed from the machine for sectionalization.
After sectionalization, the tractor half of this machine is reassembled with the scraper. The tractor may also be
assembled and operated with the water distributor half of the 613CWD Water Distributor (interchangeability).
The scraper can be transported by driving onto the following aircraft: C-17 and C-5. After reconfiguration, the
scraper can be driven onto a C-130 for transport.
The machine can be rigged on an air delivery platform for airdrop from C-130 aircraft.
Commercial trailers, trains or marine vessels can also transport the scraper.
The tractor front section has the following capabilities and features:
Caterpillar 3116TA turbocharged diesel engine with six in-line cylinders, generating 175 horsepower @
integral ether cold start for engine startup down to -25F (-32C);
Caterpillar powershift, manual transmission with six forward speeds and one reverse;
operator's cab with adjustable seat and steering column/wheel;
removable bolt-on ROPS/FOPS canopy;
front full-floating drive axle with outboard planetary final drives;
differential lock control to reduce wheel slippage when high traction is required;
articulated frame steering with two double-acting steering cylinders;
oil sampling valves for engine, transmission, and hydraulic systems;
NATO slave receptacle; and
mounting provisions for M16 rifle and portable fire extinguisher inside cab, and decontamination appara-
tus at left front of tractor.
