Stoltz Site Spreaders of Morgantown, Pa., and Carolina Trailer of Landrum, S.C., put together the winning bid for a new cement spreader design specified by the South Carolina Department of Transportation. It required a 15 ton (13.6 t) self-contained soil stabilization spreader on a highway-rated fifth wheel trailer. Special equipment included Stoltz’s digital spreader control console, a Deutz Turbo 73 hp (54 kW) air cooled engine with cab controls and EPA tier IV Interim certification, a 12 ft. (3.6 m) wide spreading auger with transport cradle, dual electric winch setup for auger installation in the field, and a six load cell digital scale system.
“We are happy to customize our spreaders to fit our customers needs,” said Stoltz President Bernard Hershberger. “South Carolina DOT wanted a spreader that could be towed by a truck, so we designed and built it for them in a very short time frame.”
Site Spreaders can be used to spread cement, quicklime, fly ash, kiln dust and similar materials. They are filled pneumatically from bulk material transport trucks. They use a slide gate to seal the hopper during loading, while the “double reverse expanded flow” air circulation system drops dust before air exits the hopper through a specially designed filter. Level spreading is accomplished by an adjustable spreading auger.
