New Arrival at George Reed – I want my MTV!
George Reed has a new MTV to add to its’ fleet. It is a Material Transport Vehicle which is used in the process of laying asphalt. The material is dumped in front of the machine. The machine then picks up the material and runs it over a series of conveyors, remixing the material prior to being placed in the paver. This process is to alleviate clumping and segregation and distributes the heat throughout the load. Cal Trans is requiring the use of MTV machine on certain jobs to insure that the material being used meets their specifications. The new MTV was immediately put to work on a Cal Trans Job on Highway 12 near Terminous.
