The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
The SX-8 is the largest, most powerful model in the Astec line of stabilizers/reclaimers.
Four cutting speeds and right-hand flush cut allow you to use the SX-8 for a range of projects including stabilizing, pulverizing, or cold recycling. The SX series machines are heavy-duty self-propelled units used for Soil Stabilization and Asphalt Reclamation.
Soil Stabilization is essential when subgrade soils lack sufficient strength to support new pavements and foundations. The existing material is milled, and additives may be integrated to increase bearing capacity. The enhanced material is graded and compacted to provide a superior quality base for a new road or foundation.
Asphalt Reclamation, also known as Full Depth Reclamation (FDR), is a cost-effective method of pavement rehabilitation. During FDR the full thickness of the asphalt surface and a portion of the underlying base is uniformly graded and pulverized to serve as the base for a new road. Additives such as cement or asphalt emulsion are often incorporated to increase strength. The result is a homogenous layer with improved structural capacity.
