Grand River Sales LLC........We've Moved
1. Grand River Sales LLC........We've Moved 
We've sold most of our property just north of the 24 & 11 junction. We're now at 1049 East Broadway (24 highway), Brunswick MO   I'll try to update with pics soon.

Grand River Sales LLC specializes in the sale of hydraulic ejection dirt scrapers, used semi tractors and tandem trucks with grain beds. We also sell a few short lines of agricultural equipment.

We sell several brands of scrapers, but the bulk of our scraper sales are Toreq's made by Steiger Mfg. Our business exploded when we became a Toreq dealer in December of 1993. Since 1994 we have been the largest Toreq dealer in the United States. We were also the largest Leon dealer five years in a row. We believe that our knowlege, price and commitment to customers has made us one of the largest ag and small contractor scraper dealer in the North America.

There are 12 models of the Toreq scrapers. Six models have dolly wheels on the front, and six models are direct hitch. We carry most models in stock.

Steiger also builds a 3-point PTO ditcher that has been a great seller and customers like it for a quick fix draining fields. It has a 40" cutting wheel. Recent changes have made it pull substantially easier.

The used semi tractors we sell fall into the $10,000 to $35,000 range. We also mount new 18 & 20' grain beds on diesel twin screws.

If you have any questions, give us a call and we'll do our best to answer them for you.

Toreq 40" PTO ditcher
3. Toreq 40" PTO ditcher 
Here are a few pics of the Toreq ditcher, made by Steiger mfg

The ditcher in these pic's only has two cutting paddles, but all of the new ditchers have four. The wheel on the new ditchers is square, instead of round. The 4 paddles and square wheel make the ditcher pull much easier.

40" cutting wheel with 4 cutting paddles, replaceable edges on paddles

2 coulters ahead of the ditcher

Heavy splined PTO shaft, can be used on 540,  small or big 1000 PTO,,,, It pulls the easiest on 540

Safety shear bolts are at the end of the paddles, and also on the drive line

Front screen hinges to allow easy access to driveline shear bolts and grease points

Designed for cat-2 or cat-3, high or low, quick hitches

The ditcher pivots at the 3-point to allow constant grade

Rear hydraulic guage wheel with depth guage

Two bearings in both bearing collars (greasable)

Left side discharge

In most soils, the ditcher will throw dirt 75'-300'. It does not leave a ridge of dirt along the cut like many ditchers do.

Toreq scraper spec sheet
4. Toreq scraper spec sheet 
When comparing brands of scrapers for size, make sure that you look at the stroke of the ejection cylinder as well as width and height of the pan. Except for the 6-yard, all of the Toreq's use a 2.5" ejection cylinder rod.

The specs for the wide cut direct mounts aren't on this spec sheet. We'll include them at a later time. The standard cut direct mounts are included on this sheet, except for the 12D.

The clearance at the cutting edge on the 6000, 10000D & 14000D scrapers is incorrect on the spec sheet. The clearance on the 6 is almost 14", and on the Direct Mount 10 & 14 the clearance can be set from 15-20"

When we've traded for other brands of scrapers, we've found that many of them weigh 1,000 lbs less than what their specs say they should weigh.

Toreq 6-yard scraper
5. Toreq 6-yard scraper 
Here are a few pics of the 6-yard Toreq made by Steiger: wgt 5,000 lbs, 80" cut , 12.5 x 15 front tires and 12.5 x 16 rear tires,

As with all Toreq scrapers, the pins are hardened and replaceable, and all major pins go through bushings. The rear axles adjust independent of each other. This feature is critical if you ruin a tire and replace with a different brand or different height. With the adjustable axles you can level the cut of the scraper. Wide front gate opening  and 14" clearance under the cutting edge allow this scraper to handle sod or sticking dirt VERY well.

Here are a few pic's of the 9-yard Toreq.  More pics will be loaded soon.

Toreq's are built by Steiger mfg, the family  that started the 4-wheel drive tractor revolution across North America.

As with all Toreq scrapers, the pins are hardened and replaceable, and all major pins go through bushings. It uses the same dolly swivel, lift and gate cylinders as the 13 yard Toreq. The rear axles adjust independent of each other. This feature is critical if you ruin a tire and replace with a different brand or different height. With the adjustable axles you can level the cut of the scraper. The wide front gate opening (54" gate to cutting edge) and 14" clearance under the cutting edge allow this scraper to handle sod or sticking dirt VERY well.

Toreq 11.5 yard scraper
7. Toreq 11.5 yard scraper 
Here are a few pictures of the 1150 Toreq.  It has a 98" cut, 18.4 x26 rear and 16.5 x 16.1 front diamond tread tires. It uses the same dolly swivel, lift and gate cylinders as the 13 yard Toreq. The eject cylinder is a 4 x 62 with 2.5" ram. It's front gate will open wider than any of the competition ( 59" ). It has excellent ground clearance (17" at the cutting edge). Neck and draft arms and neck cross piece are all 1/2 inch thick steel. All hubs are welded steel instead of cast, and the wheels are reinforced. Notice the size of the gate arms on the Toreq scrapers.

As with all Toreq scrapers, the pins are hardened and replaceable, and all major pins go through bushings. The rear axles adjust independent of each other. This feature is critical if you ruin a tire and replace with a different brand or different height. With the adjustable axles you can level the cut of the scraper.

In one of the pictures you can see the ground clearance measured with a yard stick. It actually has a little more clearance than what the picture shows, because the scraper is resting on the transport pins.

Toreq 13 yard scraper
8. Toreq 13 yard scraper 
You will find that the Toreq's built by Steiger are industry leaders when it comes to durability, workability and resale. Steiger began the production of Toreq scrapers in 1970, at the same facility that the first 125 4-wheel drive tractors were built. Over the last 36 years they have become known as the best hydraulic eject on the market.

The 13-yard Toreq weighs app. 13,500 lbs. It has a 104" cut. The front gate opens app. 55". The scraper has  17" clearance under the cutting edge when raised.  It has 16.9X24 R'3's in front, and 18.4X26's in rear (Firestones). Rear spindles adjust independent of one another so if you ruin a tire, and only one tire is changed, you  can still level up the scraper (tire heights will vary 3-4" between brands).The scraper features hardened pins; major pins go through bushings. It has machined and steel welded hubs inside of  gusseted wheels.

All cylinders are built by Steiger, and have screw on the outside endcaps. The 3-piece HD cutting edge (frost blade) is 3/4" thick. The scraper has an 18" spill plate on the ejection gate. Notice the size of the gate arms and frame work in the pictures. There has never been a bent or broken spindle on a Toreq scraper.

This scraper struck, is the same size as a 14 yard Reynolds.

We add side extenmsions to about 70% of the 13-yard scrapers, allowing them to carry another 1.5-2 yards of dirt.

Take a look at the pond pictures further down on the main page. This scraper really heaps dirt well. We believe that it will carry as much or more dirt than most 14 yard scrapers. The over sized rear tires allows this scraper to handle soft conditions excellent.

Stacy building daughters pond
14. Stacy building daughters pond 
Although we sell scrapers, and I've run them ever since I was wet behind the ears, I had never built a pond. I've told all of my kids, that if they lived close enough and had the right location, I would build them a pond.

My oldest daughter and son-inlaw are moving closer to home, and bought a piece of ground for their new home, and Dad made good on his promise in July of 2005.

After visiting with the S&WCD for about 30 minutes, I designed and built this almost 4 acre pond. There's 12,000 yards of dirt in the dam, and I hauled another 2,000 yards of dirt for them to use for landscaping. The dam is 950' long. The overflow pipe is 96' x 12".

It took me a little over two weeks of long hours to build it. Like most farmers, I really enjoy moving dirt. Down the road I plan on building a couple of 5-10 acre ponds on my mother-inlaws ground.

I built this pond with a Toreq 12D. It will hold as much or more than most 14's. The direct mount really works good for ponds. For most farmers building and maintaining terraces, and doing drainage work, the dollied scraper is a better choice for them.

May 2013: Lord willing, I will start on a 10 acre lake in June or July 2013. Return for pics and an update on it.

Due to popular demand
15. Due to popular demand 
As many of you know, Grand River Sales is near famous for BBQ. We don't need a big excuse to fire up the grill and serve up some of the finest eating to ever be had anywhere. Our specialty is BBQ Prairie Dawgs.

Bob Cooper, with the help of Doug and Stacy, developed a recipe for Prairie dogs. The dogs are ground, secret ingredients are added, and then they are stuffed into casings. The result is the world famous Prairie Dawg brat.

Now these aren't high plains run of the mill gophers. Mr Cooper raises them in confinement, feeds and cares for them like they where his own kids, then he KILLS them and makes the finished product.

People have driven hundreds of miles to eat and buy these brats. Some customers take home 50 lbs of them at a time. Many have said it was worth buying a scraper or truck from us, just so they could eat the BBQed Prairie Dawgs. Some folks have even swore off of beef and pork, and now are on a healthy P-Dawg diet.

Two of the folks in the photo's flew all the way from New Zealand to eat P-Dawgs with us. Even though they market hundreds of cattle and thousands of sheep a year, they were completely sold on our BBQed P-Dawgs. They have asked to be the exclusive distribitor of P-Dawgs in South East Asia, New Zealand and Australia.

A P-Dawg a day, makes you do better.

DISCLAIMER: Grand River Sales LLC is not responsible for any of the content pertaining to BBQed P-Dawgs. Statements made are opinions only, and some of them may be out right lies. But it's all in fun, and if you get close to us, stop in and we'll cook up a mess of em.
