GOMACO has added an optional hydraulically folding rear conveyor to its 9500 material handling machine. With the option, the conveyor can remained attached during shipping, giving the 9500 a shipping length of 41.8 feet and shipping height of 11.5 feet. The conveyor is stronger and more rigid with a truss-style framework, according to the company. The switch to control the folding conveyor can be placed at different locations on the back of the machine. Belt width remains 36 inches, and the rear conveyor maintains its 160-degree swing with hydraulic height adjustment up to 12 feet. It has 34.7-foot reach during machine operation, with a conveyor belt speed of 504 feet per minute.
