W430A Road Widener

W430A Road Widener

The W430A features a high-temperature-resistant belt coupled with a powerful drive to ensure top material handling. An independent variable-speed, hydraulic, dual end-drive system — complete with two high-torque, direct drive motors — powers the 24-inch-wide conveyor belt at speeds ranging from 0 to 400 fpm. Discharge speed is controlled by the conveyor speed knob, and discharge direction is controlled by a switch, both conveniently located on the operator’s station.

The large-capacity receiving hopper has a 9-foot-4-inch opening, with an optional hydraulic push beam that provides flexibility for multiple truck styles. The chain-driven belt provides a positive drive and keeps the belt tracking straight in line.

This heavy-duty, self-propelled road widener is designed to handle a variety of widening applications and materials. It is capable of widening up to 8 feet with a working depth of 12 inches above grade to 12 inches below grade.
