On the road, control of both the feed roller and agitator is handled from a single lever on the reversing transmission to simplify the operator’s job. As an extra aid to ease of operation and material-saving efficiency, the transmission automatically shifts to neutral in case of a shifting error. With this set-up the operator has more time to control the feedgate. Feedgate levers on both sides are designed to open in a true arc. Prevent springing of feedgate and subsequent uneven spreads. Operator can control opening from as much as 88,9 mm down to 0 mm. Fast one-man hook-ups without tipping of box are made possible by two balance wheels placed ahead of the traction tyres. Two self-filling, self-dumping ballast boxes provide additional stability.
The Macnay Model RS96 Traction Sweeper can be used with any towing vehicle. The unit is of the tow type, easily attachable and with a three wheel chassis gives the shortest turning radius of any comparable sweeper with or without a loose clip-on 1 cubic meter hopper.
The Sweeper has no engine and therefore the brushes are powered from the rear wheels, which are fitted with ratchet-type differentials. Drive is completed through a two speed gearbox with a neutral universal coupling, heavy duty chains and sprockets. The transmission provides for the selection of two brush speeds for light and heavy type sweeping. The brush rotation speeds can be set at either 100 or 150 R.P.M., and the prime mover not to exceed 8km/h when sweeping.
For road construction the sweeper is highly suited for cleaning the surfaces prior to black topping, leveling chips, lime or crushed rock. A simple manual adjustment permits the brushes to be angled at either 30 degrees to the left or right.
Same as RS96 except that the steering front wheel and drawbar are replace with a solid drawbar, bolt on drawbar eye and a height adjustable landing leg.
Hood/mud flap fitted in front of the broom hood to eliminate most of the stones being flicked onto the driver and towing vehicle. A loose clip-on 1 cubic meter hopper can be added to pic-up dirt.
Telecon Trailer Container System - (4 Or 6 Tonne)
WHEN COUPLING TRAILER TO TRACTOR ENSURE THAT:
Drawbar pin is properly connected.
Check that landing leg is locked in top position.
Check that hydraulic quick couplers are locked.
Check that electric plug is properly plugged into tractor.
Check that lights and indicators are working.
Check that parking brake is released.
Ensure that the top frame is in the down position.
Reverse trailer under container until trailer and container stops are against each other.
Apply hydraulic pressure with tractor valve, until both locking arms drop in behind stops.
Release pressure and container locks will engage behind stops. Note: no pressure in cylinders.
The container automatic locking mechanism will also have locked the container to the top frame. Note: this is the correct travelling position.
Before tipping, ensure that the trailer is on level ground as this can cause severe damage to the hydraulic rams, arms, pins etc.
Apply hydraulic pressure until container is in the tipping position – 60 degrees.
When load is discharged, release pressure until in travelling position.
Note: never pull stop to endeavour to discharge a load, as this will damage the hydraulic cylinders.
When in travelling position:
Apply hydraulic pressure until rear arms are against the rear stops.
Pull release level or cable and both forks will lift release arms enough to clear stops.
Release pressure. While the top frame and container moves down, the automatic container catch will then release the container.
The trailer can be removed when the container is on the ground and in a free standing position.
4 Tonne telecon system – minimum 35kw tractor
6 Tonne telecon system – minimum 45kw tractor
Note: the above is based on normal road conditions.
Where steep gradients exist, the tractor kw. Must be increased.
Tractor hydraulic system: must be capable to spare 25 litres of hydraulic oil to operate the telecon system.
Tractor hydraulic pressure: normally between 160 and 180 bar (sufficient to operate telecon hydraulic tipping system).
When the telecon trailer is fitted with a hydraulic braking system then a brake and tip kit must be fitted to the tractor.
Trailers will be manufactured to customer’s specifications and in accordance with SABS and Natis regulations. All trailers manufactured will be issued with Natis documents but proxy registration must be done by customer himself.
All trailers come with a standard 3 month warranty and one year on manufacturing.
All containers will be manufactured to customer specifications from 4mm to 4,5mm mild steel plate. Container corners will be fully welded inside and outside in wire feed co2. On completion the unit will be smoothly grinded, acid cleaned, primed in oxide primer and painted in yellow enamel paint. On completion the container will be fitted with reflectors all round and a chevron to the rear.
