SCARAB Mfg

Back in the early 1970’s, a local feedlot contacted SCARAB to develop a way for managing the bedding and manure produced by the feedlot. This conversation produced the first SCARAB compost windrow turner machine.

SCARAB’s founder, Marvin Urbanczyk, grew up on a farm, earned a college degree and then started his own farming business.  Large equipment has been part of his whole life and he discovered early on how essential good quality equipment is to an operation.  His vision for SCARAB has always been to build a machine that lasts, does the job it was designed to do, doesn’t breakdown due to an inadequate understanding of potential stresses placed on a machine, uses fuel efficiently to minimize cost, and is simple to maintain and operate.

After numerous innovations and over forty years, SCARAB is the worldwide leading manufacturer of self-propelled compost windrow turners. Our machines are in use throughout 20+ different countries. Current innovations make SCARAB a leader in reliability, low working costs, fuel efficiency, and high production capacity.

Products

Models accommodate 6 through 27 foot windrows (self-propelled straddle type and pull-behind). Both belt driven and hydraulic machines are offered. Patented independent suspension and track design that “floats” the machine across varying surfaces. Multiple drive system options: four wheel drive, full track (14-30 inches wide), rubber tires, and drive tires in front with castors in back or transverse configuration. Eight flail designs, six drum sizes and multiple configurations.  Local service and delivery of parts through our network of distributors.
