Professional crews repair a hole with material from the RoadMixer.
Kemper Equipment held a RoadMixer10 demo Nov. 17 in Honey Brook, Pa.
The demo was held to introduce contractors, municipal employees, township supervisors, roadmasters and road crews not only to the equipment but also the concept. This RoadMixer supplies hot asphalt material on the site — anywhere and anytime — in the required amounts.
The RoadMixer 10 is the flagship unit in the RoadMixer Series of mobile volumetric hot mix asphalt mixing and delivery systems. The machine provides the ability to produce hot mix asphalt from raw materials carried onboard or from materials on the job site. The RoadMixer 10 is designed specifically for road repair contractors, providing new opportunities by increasing capabilities and lowering overall maintenance costs.
Among its features and benefits, the RoadMixer 10 can:
• Eliminate multiple temporary repairs;
• Provide winter season permanent repairs;
• Reduce road closure time by providing single, permanent repairs;
• Reduce hauling time to and from the asphalt plant;
• Reduce waiting time;
• Provide a smoother finish from custom, consistent mixes;
• Offer repair in demand by providing contractors with the unique ability to respond to emergency repairs on short notice without the need for temporary measures, and more.
