Neal Manufacturing's High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle boasts efficient, clog-free movement of material
Neal Manufacturing, a division of Blastcrete Equipment LLC and a manufacturer of asphalt pavement preservation equipment, offers its High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle for maximum efficiency and high-quality results on large road projects. With innovative features and in-cab controls for key variables, the High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle allows for fast, precise sealcoat application, even with larger aggregate mixes.
"Department of transportation and contractors involved in road preservation are realizing the improved safety, durability and quality offered by sealcoat products with high friction coefficients," said Tripp Farrell, Neal Manufacturing president. "To take advantage of these innovative products, though, crews need equipment that can handle large aggregate mixes. Like many Neal Manufacturing products, our High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle started as a custom solution and developed into a product offering."
The High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle features Neal Manufacturing's Generation IV pump that delivers infinitely variable outputs from 0-150 gpm. The pump is capable of moving material with large aggregate without clogs, greatly increasing productivity on large road jobs
The Generation IV pump further increases project efficiency by offering operators material transfer rates twice that of standard pumps, according to the company. In as little as 20 minutes, the Generation IV pump can transfer material from storage tanks to the truck mounted 3,000-gallon tank. Heavy-duty construction and industrial-grade hydraulic cylinders provide extreme durability and longevity for minimal downtime and maximum productivity.
Operators can cover up to 13 feet in one pass at an industry-leading rate of 150 gpm with the High-Volume Road Maintenance Vehicle. In-cab controls allow for on-the-go spray bar height adjustment, ensuring optimal distance between the nozzles and road surface is achieved as the truck shifts weight and moves from full to empty. Individual nozzles can also be controlled from the truck cab, giving contractors the flexibility to adjust the spray area as needed, whether alternating tips or only using one side of the dual spray bar.
