The Teamster is a unique piece of equipment designed for unloading hopper wagons at a high output rate of 1200t p/hr.
This 6-wheeled, road-going vehicle travels to offloading sites as required to meet up with loaded hopper wagons.
The offloading conveyor, which is attached to the lorry, is placed below the hopper wagon doors using its own independent power system.
Material is then offloaded directly to the selected bay.
This equipment is ideal for sites with restricted space as it does not require investment in civil engineering normally associated with hopper wagons.
The Teamster is used to for unloading of materials to supply various concrete production facilities.
