Road widening attachments that pave their way

Road Widener manufactures unique road maintenance attachments designed to significantly decrease operating costs while delivering reliable performance, productivity and efficiency.

Its FH and FH-R units recently entered the Australian market and are rapidly growing in popularity within the road construction industry.

While smaller than most road shouldering attachments, they are proving to be a flexible and portable road widening solution for the domestic market.

Manufactured in the USA, Road Widener has sold hundreds of units in its home market and has refined its design over nearly 10 years to best meet customer needs.

Asphalt is dispersed via a heat-treated conveyor belt designed for heavy-duty handling of hot asphalts and coarse materials.

The Road Widener provides a very low cost per tonne for dispersing aggregate when compared to traditional, large road wideners, and allows producers to significantly reduce their operating costs and labour requirements. The machines are cost-effective, efficient tools for shouldering, road widening, backfilling asphalt, trench backfilling and kerb backfilling.

The flexible Road Widener skid steer attachment is a “must have” for state and municipal highway departments, road construction and maintenance contractors, and civil contractors looking for greater operating efficiency and enhanced productivity in road shouldering and other aggregate dispersal applications.

The FH and FH-R models come standard in a left-hand discharge configuration in Australia, and a dual discharge model is also available, allowing optional right or left discharge in a single unit.

All attachment functions are hydraulically controlled on both models, with adjustable box width, slope and belt speed. They are designed with ease of use and visibility in mind, providing the operator with a clear line of site to the working area and road edge.

The Road Widener is easily manoeuvred around guardrails, sign posts, mailbox posts and other obstructions.

The Road Widener is suitable for use with any type of aggregate, including gravel, asphalt and top soil.

The FH-R model adds an innovative remote control functionality, allowing either the skid steer operator or another worker to control the Road Widener functions remotely. Both models lay aggregate at widths of 300mm to 1300mm and are powered by standard flow hydraulics.

The Road Widener is suitable for use with any brand of large framed skid steer or compact track loader and can be optionally adapted to suit small wheel loaders or large tractors.

At only 1400kg, the Road Widener is easily transported and can be lifted off and onto transport trailers by a skid steer or track loader alone – no need for cranes or other logistical hassles commonly required by heavier road widening attachments.

All models offer precise operator control of the flow and placement of material and, with standard pintle push plates and wheel rollers, can disperse a 20-tonne truckload of aggregate in only minutes.

The Road Widener is suitable for use with any type of aggregate, including gravel, asphalt and top soil, which is dispersed via the highest quality, heat-treated conveyor belt designed for heavy-duty handling of hot asphalts and coarse materials alike.

In Australia, the distributor of Road Widener products is ASV Sales & Service.
