New Stoltz Site Spreader Controller Simplifies Operation
Better Roads Staff | September 30, 2011
Responding to owner and operator requests for simplified controls, Stoltz introduced its Spreader Control Center™ in 2009. SCC combines all the spreader control functions into an easy to use interface. “We could not find a user-friendly controller on the market, so we designed our own. We used the latest technology in hydraulics and electronics to simplify calibration and operation”, said Stoltz president Bernard Hershberger.
“Now, all the operator does is enter the application rate in pounds per square yard and drive. The spreader will automatically adjust to maintain a constant spread rate” said Hershberger.
“The SCC has been continuously improved since its introduction. We have added a metric side to the software for export sales, which are an increasing part of our business”. Operators also have more control over spreader operation and diagnostic screens for troubleshooting.
While most operators are expected to take advantage of the spreaders “automatic mode”, the spreader can still be run manually should the need arise.
Site Spreaders can be used to spread cement, lime, fly ash, kiln dust, and similar materials. They are filled pneumatically from bulk material transport trucks. They use a patent pending slide gate to seal the hopper during loading, while the proprietary “double reverse expanded flow” air circulation system drops dust before air exits the hopper into the specially designed filter. Level spreading is accomplished by a patent pending adjustable spreading auger, with no secondary vane feeder needed.
The price includes free on-site training anywhere in the lower 48 states. Contact Stoltz Site Spreaders at 800-843-8731 or online at www.cementspreaders.com.
