The unit’s new hefty design includes a 10 cubic yard, double wall constructed, heated container that allows road crews and contractors to remain on-‐the-‐job for longer periods of time performing pothole-‐patching operations. The new B10 is designed to improve operator safety and productivity.
The B10 is a fully equipped patcher that can be mounted on either a Conventional or Tilt Cab 60,000 lb. (GVW) chassis. The unit comes with a propane fueled, radiant heater that maintains asphalt temperature. The heater is rated at 67,000 BTUs and thermostat controlled from 100 to 300 degrees. For added safety, the burner is fully enclosed, located at the front of the container box, away from the operator control area at the rear of the machine.
Built for lasting performance, the container is constructed with 10 GA hot-‐rolled steel interior sides and 10 GA steel exterior walls with a 1/4-‐inch HR steel floor. Container top loading doors are 2” double wall construction and open to form a V-‐shaped inside surface that funnels material into the container for an evenly distributed load. Two hydraulically operated “material unload” doors are located at the rear of the unit along with all operator controls. The container is raised and lowered by an underbody twin arm, double acting hoist.
The B10 is also equipped with a complete Emulsion Spray system for tack coating. The system compartment tank actually includes two tanks a 130-‐gallon emulsion tank and a 20-‐gallon solvent tank. Operators can easily switch from emulsion to solvent with a convenient single lever valve. An Auxiliary Electric Heat system provides 110 VAC heat for overnight heating. The system is controlled by a temperature sensor and all heating elements are low density stainless steel. The hydraulically driven emulsion pump can output 10 gallons per minute. A Hand Torch with 20 feet of hose is also supplied. The torch delivers 200,000 BTUs.
