This SAE Information Report applies to all independent or combination construction and industrial machines that are designed to scraper-load and transport material. (See SAE J1116 and J1057a.) The purpose of the scraper loading ability test is to determine the amounts of specified material that can be loaded with specified times and to express the data as a load-growth curve. The amount loaded is measured in kilograms and should be converted to volume by means of unit mass for reporting purposes.
The technical report covers technology, products, or processes which are mature and not likely to change in the foreseeable future.
