Benefits and potential applications

 

  • Direct loading into the dosing unit
  • Filling cavities
  • Pressure blowing gravel
  • Pressure blowing lean concrete
  • Pressure blowing and spreading extensive substrate
  • Pressure blowing and spreading intensive substrate
  • Installations made simple thanks to booms of up to 30m

Our six-meter-wide Jumbo needs a certain amount of space to deploy its power to full effect. After all, that's why it's called a Jumbo.

The Jumbo can extend its trunk up to 30 metres, so it can pressure blow a wide variety of materials such as substrates or gravel. We can lay gravel or install greenery over extensive roof areas on industrial buildings or private roof terraces – at rates of up to 40 cubic metres per hour and over distances of up to 700 m. With the transporter attached, the combined machine is no less than 30 metres long.

Waiting times are eliminated because each truck can empty its load directly into the transporter. Superbly efficient.
