Expanded Double Barrel Lineup: The Double Barrel drum dryer/mixer delivers guaranteed productivity and top-quality mixes while keeping operating costs per ton of mix low and meeting the most stringent environmental codes. The Double Barrel drum dryer/mixer revolutionized the market with its ability to handle RAP effectively and efficiently with a unique drum-within-a-drum style and an exclusive sequential mixing process.
Today’s Double Barrel drums still rely on sequential mixing to deliver high quality mix while continuing to advance mixing technology with the addition of patented V-Flights and the expansion of the Double Barrel product line with the Double Barrel X and the Double Barrel XHR which can handle high RAP mixes of up to 70%.
SB-3000 Shuttle Buggy® MTV: Powerful and practical, the SB-3000 material transfer vehicle stores and transfers hot-mixed asphalt material from truck to paver for non-stop paving, while enhancing safety, comfort, and productivity. The anti-segregation auger remixes material just before delivery to the paver and the 35-ton storage capacity allows trucks to unload HMA immediately. Engine, fluid checks and other important daily maintenance items are at ground level for safe and easy access. Bright, LED lights illuminate the wheels, egress ladder and operator platforms. The main operator is closer to the action while maintaining excellent sight lines, and the ground operator is protected inside the structure of the machine.
FT4250CC Mobile Impactor Plant: The hybrid-powered FT4250CC mobile impactor plant, with an added pre-screen, features easy access to all controls for quick set up, operation and maintenance. The two-deck pre-screen minimizes the amount of undersized material that passes through the chamber, reducing wear costs and increasing the amount of final product by up to 30%. The hybrid power option allows producers to operate using either line power or diesel fuel for added flexibility.
