Road Widener LLC Displays FH-R Material Placement Attachment
Road Widener LLC, Delafield, Wisconsin, displayed its patented FH-R material placement attachment during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. The remote-controlled attachment connects to most skid steers, compact track loaders, road graders and wheel loaders, operating off the host machine’s engine and hydraulics. It is available in left, right or dual dispensing configurations. The attachment is designed to streamline a variety of tasks including backfilling, road widening, road shoulder repairs, remediation and aggregate placement. The material is poured into the hopper at the top of the FH-R and then dispensed via remote control in adjustable lay-down widths from 1 to 6 feet. The attachment dispenses up to 20 tons of material in under 10 minutes, according to the manufacturer.
