Main components

The 360 degrees hydraulically-actuated telescopic boom is one of Telebelts main components. It operates at all lengths through a single control lever to extend and retract all boom sections. The machine is equipped with only one single belt, which eliminates material drop and mix problems.

The speed of the conveyor belt can be adjusted infinitely from 0 to 100%. Its take-up system and the belt-tensioning jack set ensure a long life of the belts and drive rollers as well as ease of service. The main conveyor is supported by a feed conveyor, which is likewise equipped with a 360 degrees rotation allowing it to be loaded from any position desired. Its adjustable feeder legs are ideal for varied job site conditions.

All boom movements can be controlled with one joystick thanks to the exclusive Modular Boom System.  For continued operation, each machine is provided with a radio remote, a cable remote and manual control valves to assure you get your job done.

The Telebelt can be equipped with a variety of hopper options as per the requirements, such as a front-end loader hopper, low profile hopper, side loading channels, or rock hopper.

Unique Outrigger Design

Putzmeister’s unique patented butterfly design of the outriggers doesn’t need a level ground for a fast setup. The front and rear outriggers manually swing out and hydraulically extend up or down. They can be activated through touch pads on each outrigger or manual controls. Their special configuration keeps the outriggers compact during travel, yet provides stability for a long reach.
