Re: What is a gannon?

It's a box scrapper that used to be handled by Woods...72" unit is for a BIG TRACTOR...

Inventor Roy Gannon developed and began producing the
first box scraper back in 1948. He called it the “Earthcavator.”
Since that time the Gannon® name has become synonymous
with heavy-duty, construction grade box scrapers.
