Girona-based Construcciones Bagudanch Serra has purchased the first new Bobcat soil and asphalt spreader attachment in Spain.
Mounted on the company’s Bobcat T650 compact track loader, the new soil and asphalt spreader provides the solution Construcciones Bagudanch Serra has been looking for, as an alternative to laying asphalt by hand. The new soil and asphalt spreader has an operating weight of 675 kg and a standard operating width of 190 cm or optional width of 196 cm.
Designed to save time and labour costs, the Bobcat soil and asphalt spreader can be used to lay asphalt and other materials to create pavements; to widen and repair existing roads; to backfill, pave over and cover trenches and to lay sub-base materials.
Thanks to its offset feature, the new attachment can also lay asphalt without the loader needing to pass over the spread material – thus ensuring an unblemished and smoother finish. Construcciones Bagudanch Serra is a family business headquartered in Vilobí d'Onyar (Girona), with extensive experience from over 30 years in the construction sector, working on behalf of both private and public sector customers.
The founders of the company have always been committed to using the most modern machinery in order to improve productivity and optimize resources. “The new Bobcat soil and asphalt spreader has already saved us a lot of time, increased profitability and above all has improved the quality of the finish,“ says Managing Director, David Bagudanch.
“It is also simple to operate and allows the work to be done with fewer operators.” The new attachment works with an average working speed of 50-120 m/min, requiring an oil flow of 45 l/min and an operating pressure of 250 bar. It offers manually adjustable thickness of layer materials from 0-100 mm and for a perfect finish, it has hydraulic side shift and adjustable side wings to guide materials. The soil and asphalt spreader also has a lockable, floating transverse tilt up to 5° to compensate for sloping terrain.
