Upgrades improve operator visibility for Roadtec's SX-7 stabiliser
Improved performance is claimed for Roadtec's SX-7 soil stabiliser which now offers increased visibility for the operator. The cab is optional and can now be slid from side to side past the frame of the machine, allowing the operator to observe the working area. The front and rear of the machine have also been reworked to add to the visibility improvements.
For the SX-7, water and emulsion are handled by a single system and any single nozzle, or set of nozzles in the spray bar can be turned off individually to control how much liquid material is put down. The machine has a new central control and diagnostic package with a screen that gives the operator feedback on every function of the machine. The variable volume cutter allows the drum to be moved up or down in the housing during operation. Maximum cut depth of the SX-7 is 530mm and standard cutting width is 2.57m and other features such as the narrow turning circle and service accessibility have been retained.
