Roadtec SB-1500 adjusts to trucking with help of telescoping head

Modifications to the Roadtec SB-1500 help the shuttle buggy more easily adjust to varied truck sizes.
“There now is a telescoping head on the dump hopper,” said Eric Baker, director of marketing and sales support at Roadtec. “The hopper can adjust based on the width of the truck.”
Another new feature is an improved operator station. “It slides out and improves visibility,” said Julio Valladares, vice president of international sales.
The SB-1500 has a capacity of 13.5tonnes. It remains well suited to tighter jobsites because of its smaller size and narrower wheel base. It also is a good fit for sites that require shuttle buggy transport over roads with weight requirements. The machine has a shipping weight of 30.5tonnes.
