46 • ROCK products • March 2019 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY MATERIAL HANDLING & CONVEYING Supreme Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of spe- cialized equipment, showed its conveyor product line at the AGG1. The conveyor product line consists of four offerings; floating conveyors, specialized conveyors, overland convey- ors, and monorail and radial stacking conveyors that are all-American designed and manufactured. Supreme's con- veyors are customized to meet the needs of any sand and gravel, or crushed stone operation. Floating conveyors are the most efficient way to move mate- rials from a dredge or barge to land as it avoids transporting materials around the perimeter of water. Supreme's floating conveyors are purpose-built for moving materials overwa- ter with heavy-duty idlers and bearings, galvanized metal to reduce rust and catwalks for safe and easy maintenance. In addition, the discharge through the radial bearing ensures a safe, clean, and even feeding on the next conveyor reducing loss of materials. Supreme understands that not all conveyors fit all appli- cations. Therefore, its engineering and applications team custom design and fabricate conveyors for specialized appli- cations that could include covered units for keeping talcum powder dry and contained and heavy-duty high-impact units for large materials that are hard on equipment. Overland Conveyors from Supreme provide operations with a viable solution for moving large amounts of material over any distance while keeping production costs as low as pos- sible by eliminating haul trucks and loaders, reducing man hours, and providing a continuous and predictable flow of material. Supreme's Overland Conveyors are constructed with premium components and can be designed for your specific application. Supreme's Monorail and Radial Stacking Conveyors have been designed around storage space efficiency. These sys- tems provide customers with either manual or powered travel option and either static or variable height with manual or powered adjustment option allowing for maximizing avail- able storage space. Supreme Manufacturing, McCloskey International's Newest Stacker Is Versatile AGG1 visitors got a first look at McCloskey International's new tracked radial stacker – the ST80T Radial – that allows operators to switch from tracked to wheel in minutes. Built-in leveling indicators allow operators to position the stacker regardless of the ground evenness, with independent hydraulic jacklegs to stabilize once in place. A level gauge allows operators to position the stacker for maximum pro- duction. The tires on the ST80T Radial have an aggressive tread pattern for better traction in rough terrain. Once in place, a hydraulic raise/lower arm allows the switch from track to radial mode in seconds. The stackers feature a unique rear counterweight that counter balances the tracks and wheels, which are behind the stacker's center of gravity. The design enables a much higher stockpile capacity, with the radial wheels set well back. The rear counterweight also firmly anchors the tail end during radial mode, delivering greater stability to the stacker while in operation. The ST80T Radial's unique tool-free transport design allows the equipment to move freely from site to site without need- ing to remove the wheels, delivering true portability for multi-site projects and operations. The McCloskey ST80T Radial Stacker's standard features include: •  Tires that have aggressive-tread patterns for more traction in tough terrain. • Hydraulic raise/lower arm allows the conveyor to switch from track to radial mode in seconds. • Level gauge to allow for operation on uneven ground. • Internal wheel drive motors allow radial travel. •  Patented counterweight design delivers enhanced stability and safety in operation.
