Indiana Phoenix Inc and Bay-Lynx Mfg of Ancaster, Ontario, Canada say they have sold the first Multi-Cat front-discharge stone spreader units in the southeastern United States under the companies' joint marketing effort.
According to Bob Enright, chief executive officer of Indiana Phoenix, these trucks are going into service for Action Concrete Contractors of Greenville SC. Dana Pelletier, president of Action, will take delivery of the trucks at the end of May.
Greg Koppelaar, general manager of Bay-Lynx, said the Multi-Cat is the first front discharge delivery system for stone, gravel, sand, topsoil, and other site preparation materials.
“Front-delivery equipment offers a host of advantages in visibility, maneuverability, and, precision placement,” Koppelaar said. “It's also designed with a wider chute opening, a load suspension beam, and has a 17-yard load capacity. And with our new throw-conveyor feature, we can spread materials up to 80 feet from the front of the truck.”
The equipment is available with a remote control that allows the operator to monitor material delivery from outside the truck cab near the point where material is being discharged.
The Indiana Phoenix truck platform features Caterpillar C-13 410-hp diesel engines, Meritor 23,000-lb front axles, Meritor 46-160 46,000-lb drive axles, and Hendrickson HN 52" rear suspensions. For more details, contact Indiana Phoenix, 200 Dekko Dr, PO Box 499, Avilla IN 46710.
