This Asphalt and Chip Spreader Paves the Way for Accuracy and Reliability When Repairing Roads
Road repair, when done right, can be precise, reliable, and efficient depending upon the machines and equipment that you choose. If you go with “the standard of the industry” for over a century, then chances are the job will be done right! That’s where the Oregon, Illinois-based ED Etnyre & Co.’s Etnyre Black Topper Asphalt Distributor and Chip Spreader comes in. It offers a state-of-the-art asphalt application with a “clean, uncomplicated design” that lessens maintenance while boosting performance and productivity, and where every unit is built to order – and last.
The Etnyre Black Topper Asphalt Distributor and Chip Spreader has many key features, including custom-built tank sizes and its electronic asphalt pump speed control. This makes the machine super dependable and more precise when compared to manual systems. Regardless of the truck speed or spray width, the application rate is automatically maintained. There are duplicate controls for stationary functions, which are located at the rear of the distributor.
While spraying, you’re guaranteed to have a “balanced, dual feed asphalt flow,” and as a result, you will also have “a uniform application across the full bar.” Another key to this precise application is the fact that there isn’t a by-pass valve in the circulating system. Therefore, the material that passes through the pump goes through the spray nozzles.
This proven performer asphalt and chip spreader is also a major time-saver. Thanks to its computerized application rate and in-cab spray bar controls, productivity dramatically increases. As mentioned, “the Etnyre computer automatically matches pump output to distributor speed.” So, you can enter the application rate you wish and the computer will sustain that rate – no matter the distributor speed, bar width, or transmission gear changes while operating.
You also don’t have to deal with the hassle of switching between displays for information. There is only one computer screen that simultaneously displays the application rate, gallons per minute, and feet traveled. Another helpful feature is that you can store ten different application rates in memory and retrieve them with a simple push of a button. You can also adjust it for loading and circulating without having to change the desired spray or application rates. There’s also a built-in self-diagnostic program that monitors the control circuits.
Bottom line, the Etnyre Black Topper Asphalt Distributor and Chip Spreader has “proven performance with unbeatable accuracy.” Super solid and dependable, it’s built to get the job done year after year.
