Bult Equipment to Distribute Titan EMD Scraper in North America

March 30, 2012

Bult Equipment will be Titan Earthmoving Equipment Division’s (Titan EMD) exclusive sales and service dealer for the S4412B scraper in the United States and Canada. Bult Equipment is located in Monee, Ill.

“Bult has a unique appreciation of heavy-duty scraper applications from the customers’ perspective and truly are scraper experts,” says Mike Kloepfer, president of Titan EMD. “Jim Bult initiated the concept of the High Arch Drawframe that’s at the heart of our design, and he has been an integral part of our development and test process. Nobody has a better understanding of the engineering behind the S4412B, or the advantages this design offers to heavy earthmoving contractors.”

The S4412B is a new high-capacity scraper system that integrates a 44 cubic yard-bowl with a customized Bell 4206D scraper tractor. “This is the first earthmoving system designed specifically to build on the power and efficiency of today’s most advanced scraper tractors,” says Kloepfer. “By engineering the two units to work together, the S4412B introduces a highly versatile system that lets contractors earn more on their total equipment investment by delivering more material at faster speeds with lower operating costs and higher reliability.”

Key features of the system include a maximum capacity of 55 tons, conventional and top load capability, tight integration and maneuverability with the Bell tractor, plus the High Arch Drawframe designed to optimize weight transfer to the tractor. Its rear wheel assembly is based on a pair of 100-inch diameter E3 earthmover tires on 5-inch diameter axles.
