11-percent increase in hopper capacity
Terex Cedarapids CR300L Series asphalt pavers bring an 11-percent increase in hopper capacity from previous models, with its 10-ton hopper delivering more paving time between truck exchanges. While the new pavers are longer and include more heavy-duty components, all CR300L Series machines – the rubber tire CR352L, rubber track CR362L and steel track CR362LS – keep the same weight as their previous model counterparts, allowing them to be transported between sites without permits. The asphalt mix is now channeled from the hopper to the spread augers by the same heavy-duty chain, sprocket and slat bar delivery system found on Terex Cedarapids CR400 and CR500 Series mainline pavers.
Pulverize all the way to the curb line
The Roadtec SX-7 soil stabilizer is designed to work in a variety of materials from soil to old pavement. With its right-hand flush cut, the machine pulverizes or stabilizes all the way to the curb line. The 102-inch-wide cut allows three passes on a road at least 24 feet wide. For relatively shallow cuts the cutter is positioned in the housing to provide optimal gradation. As cut depth increases the volume is adjusted in the housing to accommodate for deep stabilization. The machine features four-wheel steer and can be controlled via one or both front wheels, one or both rear-wheels and can also crab sideways. The control console and operator seat swivel 180 degrees and the machine can be operated from the right or left side. Powered by a 700-horsepower Caterpillar engine, the machine features a 21-inch cut depth.
Ripper/bucket combo handles both rocks and hard places
Leading Edge Attachment’s Single Pointed Ripper Bucket’s ripper/bucket combination rips up rock, coral shale, decomposed granite, limestone, sandstone, asphalt or frozen ground. The sides are solid high strength Hardox 400 steel slabs arranged in a ‘V’ shape. These plates converge at the bottom and are connected to a structural member that holds a single replaceable tooth. The tip radius is shorter than the standard bucket to keep the breakout forces high, but is long enough to form a ‘V’ shape that is structurally sound for ripping and prying.
