SX-8e Soil Stabilizer - Reclaimer
The Roadtec SX-8e soil stabilizer-reclaimer features a clean-running 755 hp (563 kW) CAT® C18 engine. It is the largest, most powerful model in the Roadtec line of stabilizers-reclaimers. The SX-8e complies with Tier 4 interim and Stage IIIb emission standards. Weighing in at approximately 83,000 lbs (37,648 kg), the SX-8e is balanced and powerful. Four cutting speeds and right-hand flush cut allow you to use the SX-8e for a range of projects including stabilizing, pulverizing, or cold recycling.
It is often necessary to operate at different cutter speeds in order to balance production with the required material quality at each project. Roadtec is the only manufacturer to offer a 4-speed cutter transmission to achieve the highest levels of production at each drum rpm. Rather than simply altering the engine rpm to modify drum speed, the transmission allows the machine to operate at peak power output at four different selectable drum speeds. Selection of cutter speeds is simple and requires no time consuming modifications to the belt drive or pulley arrangement.
Four Wheel Drive Propel System
The 4-wheel drive propel system on all Roadtec SX models delivers 100% traction control to perform consistently in the most challenging environments.
Reclaimers are large, and some can be difficult to maneuver in confined areas. With the SX-6 and SX-8, the ability to cut while moving forward or reverse eliminates this issue. There is no need to turn the machine around. With a simple toggle switch, the machine can be moved forward or reverse, and continue to cut in either direction, saving time and money.
Fixed Cutter Drum
The Roadtec SX-8e features a fixed cutter drum. This adds durability, meaning there is no need to sacrifice gradation for production. The area between the drum and housing is small enough that gradation is automatic. Since our drum is fixed to the housing, you do not need to worry about large chunks of material getting through. You can achieve a higher quality, fine gradation with one pass.
Roadtec's Guardian® Telematics
Guardian is the industry's only live 2-way telematics system and provides detailed remote diagnostics in real time. Guardian, which is optionally available on the SX-5, maximizes performance, limits downtime, and protects your investment.
The weight on SX models is evenly distributed between 2 axles and balanced over the cutter, enabling optimal controlled power and constant traction. This feature complements the 4-wheel drive system and allows the SX to maintain consistent cut depths.
Four Available Steering Options
SX operators can choose coordinate, crab, front only, or rear only steering. These options are easily controlled via joystick, enabling quick response and smooth changes, ensuring the best in maneuverability.
Intuitive Controls with Joystick
Intuitive, easy to reach joystick controls allow SX operators to work quickly and comfortably. Simple and straightforward controls are clearly marked and backlit to increase worker safety and convenience.
Extendable, Sealed, and Pressurized cabin
The operator cabin on the SX-6 and SX-8 extend up to 18” past the right side of the machine, allowing the operator to have full visibility, without sacrificing comfort or ergonomics.
Roadtec’s SX series has an efficient cooling system that pulls air from the top of the machine, where it is cleanest. The air is exhausted through the rear radiator packs. Puling air in this way limits the dust that travels through the cooling system, eliminating, the amount of debris that can enter the engine or cause corrosion. Other manufacturers pull air from the side, which can cause clogs and machine breakdown
Variety of Drums to Fit Specific Applications
Roadtec offers a variety of drums each one specifically designed to fit your specific application. Soil stabilization drums are designed to provide the most productive result while maximizing the machines horsepower. Reclamation drums are heavy duty, up to the task of working in demanding environments and providing the best gradation for the job at hand.
Water Emulsion Additive System
A Water Emulsion Additive System uses simple controls to easily control and monitor additive system parameters, such as flow intensity and spray nozzle activation. The system is an option on all SX models.
