Otico wheel were a success. Very happy with that change over.
I gotta check my 2018 model and see if its the same scraper as on the right, guess I never looked closely enough. Is bourgault helping with the price of these scrapers to switch up their poor designs every year? I know they helped when we changed our 2016 model drill to the scrapers on the left but it was still like 8k in parts plus our labor. How significant was the improvement for the 2018 scraper? We had a lot of issues with plugging boots on the scrapers on the left but the newer drill had very little to no issues... I gotta see if its the same as that one on the right.
