The BIG A KM-4000SXDX is a 2 ton (4000lb) slide-in diesel hot mix asphalt heater and an ideal reclaimer for hot mix asphalt as well as cold patch asphalt, especially if you're working on small to medium patch jobs. Because of its compact design, it will easily fit in the bed of many standard pickup trucks, allowing a city crew or smaller contractor the flexibility of keeping their existing work trucks.
This system incorporates an Automatic Temperature Control and is fully insulated allowing you to keep your heated material at workable temperature for up to 72 hours. This makes the BIG A KM-4000SXDX 2 Ton diesel slide in hot mix asphalt heater an ideal solution for heating and reclaiming stored virgin hot mix asphalt to be used out in the field and keeping the product up to temperature while in the field. Set the thermostat from 50º F to 350º F or anywhere in between, to get the right temperature for heating your asphalt material.
Because this compact asphalt patcher only weighs 820 pounds empty, and at full capacity holds 2 tons of material, it can be carried on a standard pickup truck, flatbed truck, or trailer and dump vehicles, making it very versatile and easy to use for municipality ground crews or small contractors.
The hopper uses a gravity feed funnel design and provides easy material access through its slide-up chute. The BIG A KM-4000SXDX is a "Fully Insulated System" and this becomes a very important aspect of purchasing a high-quality hot mix asphalt heater. You might see similar less expensive hot mix asphalt heater systems are not always insulated.
The BIG A KM-4000SXDX hot mix asphalt heater is constructed of 14 gauge inner walls and 16 gauge outer walls with bracing, continuous welds, and single-piece panels for maximum strength. In addition, this unit comes standard with a 3rd reflective aluminum wall between the inner and outer shell, as well as a 2300º F refractory ceramic lining between the bottom plate and inner floor. The bottom plate is welded with steel skid fork mounts for lifting the unit out of vehicles with a forklift.
The heavy-duty lids swing open allowing for easy loading from the asphalt plant and the shovel door is an easy slide lift-up chute, providing easy access to the material.
The duct system on the BIG A 2 Ton KM-400SXDX is designed to ensure even hopper temperature and uses a 105,000 BTU diesel burner system controlled by a thermostat.
This hotbox also comes with 4 bolt-down bolts on the skid (1 on each corner) and 4 attach points for binders on the corners (1 on each corner) to ensure the hotbox can't slide out of the truck during normal usage.
Many professional contractors use this Asphalt Reclaimer in conjunction with our infrared hot mix asphalt heaters for smaller areas to reclaim and blend asphalt.
