Prince Contracting used a DoMor Rivinius R600C grading attachment on the blade of its Caterpillar D-6T Tractor to speed up the process of spreading road base material on a 7.5-mile segment of a four-lane highway. The company used to average less than 2,000 linear feet of base using a traditional dump-spreading method. Using the DoMor Rivinius R600C, Prince Contracting was able to increase daily road spread to 3,400 tons of base material and 3,200 linear feet of graded and compacted base that passed inspection.
Prince Contracting was recently awarded its first project in Georgia with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT): the Fall Line Freeway project. Construction began in July 2011. To reduce the time this road construction will take, Prince is using a Domor Rivinius R-600C grading attachment on the blade of its Caterpillar D-6T Tractor to spread road base material. In Domor’s Case Study, the company reports that the R-600C has enabled Prince to achieve significant time and cost savings.
