TheRoadtec SB-2500D Shuttle Buggy® material transfer vehicle

Posted By admin On February 13, 2008 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments



The SB-2500D Shuttle Buggy® material transfer vehicle can store hot mix asphalt and transfer it from a truck to a paver for continuous paving. A patented antisegregation auger remixes materials just before they are delivered to the asphalt paver. The 25-ton (22.7 MT) surge capacity of the SB-2500D allows trucks to unload material immediately and return to the asphalt plant. Options include a windrow pickup head and road widener attachment.
