MATERIAL TRANSFER VEHICLES
Material transfer vehicles offer several unique advantages to the process of constructing asphalt pavements, including issues associated with trucking as well as material and thermal segregation. Roadtec MTVs are designed to lower operating costs allowing for continuous paving and reducing the number of haul trucks needed. Material transfer vehicles (MTVs) are used to assist the paver in accepting HMA (hot mixed asphalt).
Pavers are normally equipped to receive Hot Mixed Asphalt in two styles of dump trucks, live bottom or end dump trucks. Our MTVs are equipped to handle the additional surge volume from both bottom or end dump trucks. This is advantageous because it allows the paver to operate continuously without stopping. With continuous paving, you can minimize truck waiting times and decrease temperature differentials and aggregate segregation.
Roadtec offers three different models of material transfer vehicles to address the needs of any hot or warm mix asphalt project. Our three models can handle everything from 10 to 25 ton asphalt mix capacity.
