Roadtec Presented SP-100e at CONEXPO/CONAGG 2014
An innovative paver design will soon return to the Roadtec product line with various updates. The SP-100e Stealth Paver will include the unique gravity fed hopper also used on the SP-200e spray paver. This gravity fed system eliminates a number of wear components used on traditional paver conveyor systems. The gravity fed system also requires less engine power than a traditional conveyor system, which increases the machine’s fuel economy.
The SP-100e is designed to be used in conjunction with a Roadtec Shuttle Buggy®. The SP-100e accepts the material at the top of the machine, where it is fed downward to the auger and screed. By combining this gravity fed system with the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy, several common issues with conventional asphalt paving are addressed. The remixing capabilities of the Shuttle Buggy work to remedy physical and thermal segregation in the asphalt mix.
The SP-100e is a redesign of a stealth paver model previously offered by Roadtec. The latest offering will include a Cummins QSB6.7 173 HP Tier IV interim engine, and a base paving width of 10 ft. The machine will also be propelled by solid rubber wheels and list a hopper capacity of 11 tons (10 mt).
