    Hey Stevin.

    Realy nice pictures today too.:drinkup :drinkup

    A simple question:
    I see u use a roadtech buggie when laying.
    How is the temp loss when using the buggie? It makes u handle the asphalt one extra turn.
    I see u use tarpoulins on the trucks, but i bet u got to be real quick and get it into the buggie not to loose temp.

    On todays pics u use a small dumper to move the red asphalt.
    He is dumping real big piles in front of the iron.
    Ain't there a problem to keep the thicknes when doing piles like that in front of the iron?

    Again real nice pics! We apreciate them very much!:notworthy

    Hey MKTEF

    The first two or three loads dumped into the shuttle-buggy must warmer as normal, wenn the shuttle-buggy is warmed up there is nearly no temp loss.
    The shuttle-buggy is mixing the asphalt so the temp. is equal and the mixture
    is equal of composition ( in the trucks you get temp difference and mixture is unmixed ) for a beter quality.

    We got no problem with the big piles of red with the thickness because the red is almost liquid, the black asphalt stipulates the thickness.

    With the two different colored asphalts being of different viscosity as you've stated, how are you able to roll them to the same thickness?

    It gives no problem with rolling and it is just a thin layer ( 3 cm )

    Thanks for the answer Stewin.:)
    By the way, do you have any heating device in the buggie?

    I understand why you use the buggie.
    Around here we use special dumpsters on the trucks to cope with the differrence in the asphalt.(temp and separation)

    The us red river trailers is also growing in popularity.(transport band in the bottom)
    Very nice to keep temp, and they are superb in tunnels and under powerlines.
    And u get the asphalt directly into the middle of the feeder in the pawer.

    And as u say when the red asphalt is softer than the black its no problem with the piles. Todays pawers also got the stampede in front of the iron so it gets pretty well compressed even if its thinner than the black one.
    But only 3 cm, is it common to lay so thin layers by u?
    Bet it has to be old asphalt beneath.:)

    That is nice equipment. The country side sure looks nice also. Are your rollers AC'd, do they have an air filtration system to keep out the fumes? Sometimes the steam off the material makes me want to vomit. I wish pavers had an AC'd cab. Are the orange suits rain gear?

    the rollers are not equiped with AC or cab air filtration, the orange suits are for safety.

    Nice pictures, Marco / Stevinmonteur!

    I spent a summer in Gemente Horst, Limburg, back in 91 or so, so the scenes from the Dutch countryside are refreshing. I seem to remember taking the train to Venlo via Venrey and then heading off on the intercity to Utrecht... I might have spied the asphalt you show from the iron road. I do remember that most of your roads are in an excellent state of repair, probably due to the number of bicycles (a/k/a taxpayers on slow inspection tours)!

    Anyway, they are "upgrading" the nearby US highway to near-Interstate standards (thanks to our Congresscritter's years on the transportation committee), so I hope to take and post some paving pictures for you. They just started this summer-long project and I got to see some shuttlebuggies in use for the first time -- this thread was great for info, so I knew what the advantages were! The last section that was done, they extended the shoulders and added two or three courses of asphalt over the new, wider road... can't remember if the old road surface was left intact underneath or not. Anyway, I hope to provide some pics from Wisconsin, where we have two seasons, winter and road construction!

    Hello BB64

    some paving pictures from the USA would be perfect !

    just finished the 2100 today, added two 75 cm extentions and the red insert.
