SCARAB In Action


Engel & Gray Inc.

We value our SCARAB purchases due to the parts availability and the willingness of the SCARAB team to make sure our machine has the most up time that is possible. Our two 18’ SCARAB turners make Harvest Blend happen! We value SCARAB and SCARAB brings value to our Harvest Blend Compost! We operate two 18’ machines, a 1992 and a 1997. That might say it all. When you have equipment and use it, you need parts. SCARAB makes sure that is not a problem. With two machines that are 21 and 16 years old, parts availability is important. SCARAB makes sure we get the parts quick to keep our machines running. The SCARAB team has always been there to answer our questions and get us the right part on time! They keep our turners in the windrow and that brings value! American made machines have a lot of pluses when it comes to local parts availability.

Just a few words to tell you how pleased our company is with the SCARAB machine. It is hard to describe in words how well the SCARAB performs. It has been almost maintenance free with the exception of flails, which have nothing to do with performance. The belt drive offers much more power to the drum than the hydraulic system we previously had. The service has been impeccable and I would recommend the SCARAB over any other machine.

We started making compost in 1984 using dairy manure as our raw material ,we also composted a lot of cotton gin waste and some winery waste for special customers. About 15 years later we bought our 2nd SCARAB and in 2011 we bought our 3rd SCARAB; Our SCARABS have served us well –we make between 75000 and 100000 tons of compost per year so they get a good workout.

We have been using the SCARAB windrow turner for about 15 years. We turn compost and also heavy soil blends with our machine with excellent results. We have normal wear on drum and drum parts (flails and hangers) with virtually no trouble with the main body of this machine. On one occasion a new drum was needed and the SCARAB staff literally stopped what they were doing and made a new drum for my machine. After delivery they would contact me several times during the day following up on the installation and set up of the new drum almost as if they were right there helping us get the machine up and going as soon as possible. I have worked closely with these people over the years and have always felt like when I call them I am talking to a friend who has our best interest in mind. Thanks, SCARAB International!
