W730B Road Widener

An independent, variable-speed hydraulic dual-end drive system — complete with two high-torque direct-drive motors — powers the 30-inch wide conveyor belt at speeds ranging from 0 to 800 fpm. Discharge speed is controlled from the conveyor speed lever on the operator’s console, and discharge direction is controlled by a switch on the station.

The large-capacity receiving hopper has a 9-foot 4-inch opening and hydraulically raises and lowers 14 inches allowing for easy loading on trucks and for extra ground clearance when moving off the job. Self-cleaning head, tail, and return pulleys minimize material buildup.

This heavy-duty, self-propelled road widener is designed to handle a variety of widening applications and materials. It is capable of widening from one to 14 feet with a working depth from 12 inches above grade to 12 inches below grade.
