An independent, variable-speed hydraulic dual-end drive system — complete with two high-torque direct-drive motors — powers the 30-inch wide conveyor belt at speeds ranging from 0 to 80 fpm. Discharge speed is controlled from the conveyor speed lever on the operator's console, and discharge direction is controlled by a switch on the station.
The large-capacity receiving hopper has a 9-foot 4-inch opening with a hydraulic dump lip for cleanout after each truck load to help reduce hand work. Self-cleaning head, tail, and return pulleys minimize material buildup.
This heavy-duty, self-propelled road widener is designed to handle a variety of widening applications and materials. It is capable of widening from one to 10 feet with a working depth from 12 inches above grade to 12 inches below grade. With the optional long conveyor and weight kit, it can widen roads up to 14 feet.
