Construction Equipment Guide

The Roadtec Shuttle Buggy asphalt remixing device is being offered in an upgraded version. The new generation E-series Shuttle Buggy material transfer vehicle has enhanced conveyor wear resistance, which will lower contractors’ operating costs. A new adjustable width front hopper allows the E-series to work with trucks of widths commonly used in countries outside the United States.

The dual operator stations of the machine have been enhanced and can now slide sideways past the outer edge of the main frame, which improves visibility. The mix storage functionality of the SB-2500E Shuttle Buggy MTV has been improved with the addition of bindicators, devices which show the paving crew exactly how much mix remains in the hopper, according to the manufacturer.

The E-series Shuttle Buggy MTV features CAT C-27 ACERT, 950 hp (2,100 kW) Tier IV diesel engine and will be available in a Tier III version for certain international markets.

An optional side-shift operator platform is available.

Pavement lifespan tests as they relate to temperature segregation during the paving process have shown that a temperature differential of less than seven degrees Celsius in the mat behind the paver are key to even compaction and therefore pavement durability.

Infrared imaging behind the Shuttle Buggy MTV has shown in tests conducted in the United States as well as in Europe that the machine easily and consistently remixes to achieve temperature differential below the seven degree threshold.
