High-production results are achieved with the versatility of the long placing conveyor. The conveyor is 35 feet (10.67 m) long and 36 inches (914 mm) wide, with 170 degree hydraulic swing, and 12 feet (3.66 m) of hydraulic elevation adjustment.
A GOMACO RTP-500 places concrete in front of a GHP-2800 paver at work on the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport in Baltimore, Maryland. A complete listing of airports that GOMACO equipment has been on can be found at www.gomaco.com/airports.
The operator’s console can move to provide the operator with a panoramic view of the whole placing operation.
Placing accuracy with the discharge conveyor is accomplished with joystick control next to the operator’s chair.

This RTP-500, equipped with heat-resistant belts, is used in the placement of asphalt on this mainline paving project in Belgium.
The RTP-500 has fast job-site mobility, with a travel speed up to 7 mph (11 kph), and an operating speed up to 110 fpm (33.5 mpm).
The hopper features a 12 inch (305 mm) hydraulic vertical adjustment to allow for variable gate height on dump trucks. The hopper/truck seal moves out for additional cleaning.
The hydraulically folding rear conveyor minimizes the transport requirements on the RTP-500. The overall shipping length is 37.25 feet (11.35 m), width is 11.8 feet (3.6 m) with the hopper attached, 10.3 feet (3.14 m) without the hopper, and a height of 11.7 feet (3.57 m) with the conveyor folded.
