    Look a little closer, the router bits are wore out both sides and the cutting edges are broke.
    Looks like a bunch of welds on the hitch are redone.

    I had seen the broken cutting edge, slight scratches on the tire tread face. Still very low hours.

    It's a Ritchie overhaul with new tires.

    I don’t think it’s a Ritchie overhaul, looks to be very low hours, I would bet less than 500. I’ve only ever seen two or three 24Ds on the internet, I would like to know how many were built. It will be interesting to see what it brings, hopefully whoever gets it will take care of it.

    I think the 24B, C, & D were a really good design and I have never understood why Terex didn’t build the TS-14s using a similar design, especially the suspension axle. I think they would still be in the scraper business today had they done that.

    I agree with a suspended front axle. I also wish they would have incorporated the push out ejector on the 14s. Wet material likes to stick in the roll out ejector. Then you have to spend time with an excavator digging them out. Not sure if you could hold a poly truck bed liner in the roll out ejector.

    I've seen a few items come from that area. Someone has a hobby of fixing up old equipment and making it look new. I've seen a few tractors and scrapers come out of there at the auction. I do like this scraper and would love to have it. Last I saw it was at 42k.

    I never had much trouble with it sticking to the ejector (at least not a significant amount) but I believe I did see some 14Bs for sale a few years ago that had some type of liner on the ejector and I thought it was a good idea. I think I have also seen a couple that had the ejector heated off of the rear exhaust.

    The push out ejection would have made the 14s easier to dump and control the spread. If you are working in sticky clay soils with the units that have cable aprons, the cable needed to be short enough that you could get the apron up high so the load didn’t hang up on the lower lip of the apron. You also had to be careful not to eject all at once, you had to raise the ejector in small increments (sometimes rocking it up and down) until the higher part of the load fell off the top. I have seen many people get frustrated and abuse these machines because they didn’t know how to dump it. The ts-18s had roll out ejection also, but it had the apron like the 24s and 14Gs, the heavy clays didn’t hang up as long you got the apron opened up high enough. I never used any 14Gs in wet clay so I’m not sure if they performed similar to the 18s or not.

    The 14Gs are kind of a like the Bs and Cs that you would raise the ejector and the wet clump would stick until the ejector was high enough. Then it would roll forward and pack against the cutting edge sliding on the ground. Raise the cutting edge higher and you could get it to shear off or roll under in ugly chunks.
