Much of road construction work relies on the specific functions of a road reclaimer. This powerful machine can pulverize an existing layer of asphalt and mix it with additional materials, such as cement, water, or binding agents, to create a stronger surface. Typically, road reclaimers are used on deteriorating roads to bring them back up to par or improve them for a much lower cost and more economic approach than that of all-new asphalt.
For road reclaimers that meet high standards of build quality, safety, and efficiency, Caterpillar® has answered the call. At Thompson Tractor, we sell new Cat® road reclaimers and have Cat rotary mixers for sale as well.
New Cat Road Reclaimers
Cat road reclaimers have several different abilities rolled into one machine, making them versatile and wide-reaching. They contain the right equipment for tasks like pulverizing, mixing, and soil stabilization.
You can find Cat road reclaimers used in:
- Surface mining.
- Haul roads.
To support these varying applications, we carry several different types of rotors and cutting bits, each designed for different materials. Rotor options include a Combination Rotor, Soil Rotor, and Spade Rotor.
In addition to these rotor options, there are many optional pieces of equipment you can add to your new Cat road reclaimer, depending on the model. These include:
- A torque limiter: This tool can minimize damage to the engine by limiting torque when the machine hits an immovable object.
- Water and emulsion spray systems: Whether you need water, emulsion, or both, Cat offers these systems on certain models.
- Roading lights: If you need on-highway transportation, this kit can add lights, lamps and signage to increase visibility and meet requirements.
- Product Link™: With wireless tech, you can share machine data via cellular and satellite communications for easy monitoring and analysis.
