Putzmeister America, Inc. Moves Forward with the New Telebelt® TBS 130
Putzmeister America, Inc. Moves Forward with the New Telebelt® TBS 130STURTEVANT, WI (February 16, 2009) – Putzmeister America, Inc. is adding even more versatility to its full line of Telebelt® telescopic belt conveyors with the new TBS 130.
“What makes this Telebelt different from any of our other models is that it’s mounted on a semi-trailer,” says Bob Weiglein, Putzmeister America’s Telebelt Division Manager. “The semi-trailer offers the contractor multiple advantages on-site such as greater mobility, a tighter turning radius and reduced axles loads.
“In addition, the TBS 130 can be driven with either a two- or three-axle chassis, and the Telebelt trailer can be configured with either two or three axles.”
Customers around the world can also match the Telebelt trailer axle configuration with a chassis that meets their job site needs and personal preference.
With the TBS 130, material placement does not rely on the chassis engine, but instead on its self-contained Caterpillar EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage 3A engine. This results in lower operation costs and reduced fuel consumption by matching the engine output to the needs of the Telebelt operation.
“Without the need for the chassis during operation,” notes Weiglein, “the machine footprint can be reduced on-site. Operators can convey concrete on one job and free up the chassis for other tasks. A tandem dolly is available to move the TBS 130 on-site with a dozer, wheel loader or other available equipment.”
Ideal for mass concrete placement, the TBS 130 provides fast delivery of any flowable material up to 4" (100mm) with smooth, surge-free conveying results. It sets up under low 15' 4" (4.70m) heights and features a 126' 6" (38.56m) horizontal reach.
“The TBS 130 is yet another way Putzmeister America continues to demonstrate its commitment to furthering technology for Telebelts and our entire line,” says Weiglein.
