FINN Material Transfer System

September 28, 2010

The new MTS (Material Transfer System) from FINN Corporation can carry and discharge a variety of materials including aggregate, soil mixes, mulch, sand, and palletized loads.

The MTS has a reversible main floor conveyor and cross belt that gives users the option to unload material from either side of the machine. The belt moves material and dumps it directly into the wheelbarrow. The main reversible conveyor floor, combined with the wide-opening rear door, allows an entire load to be dumped in less than a minute. Speeds for both the main conveyor floor and cross belt are independently adjustable.

If material needs to be removed from a job site, the multipurpose vacuum provides for fast and easy cleanup of debris such as leaves and grass clippings, wet or dry.

The MTS uses a single 25-horsepower Kohler Command Pro gasoline engine. The 15-cubic-yard, 11,200-pound capacity hopper is constructed of lightweight, durable aluminum with a steel trailer chassis. With an empty weight of 6,800 pounds, the MTS is light enough to be towed by most 3/4-ton trucks.

The MTS has a unique sloped design on the front of the unit, which uses simple geometry to accurately feed material onto the conveyor belts. This eliminates the need for moving parts such as augers or agitators used to direct material onto the belt, reducing the potential for expensive repairs and costly downtime while increasing safety.
