Truck Mounted Slip-In Model Asphalt Recycler & Transporter
The Falcon truck mounted slip-in model asphalt recycler & transporter hopper holding capacity ranges from 2-tons to 10-tons.
All chassis mount units have three parallel walls (inner, middle and outer). The walls have one piece, seamless steel construction to prevent moisture from wicking into the insulation. When moisture is able to wick into the insulation the insulation sags and the steel rusts. The tops of all three steel layers of the front and rear hopper walls are angled to create a 2″ slope. This 2″ slope allows water to drain off the top of the chassis mount material loading doors. The complete area between middle and outer walls is filled with insulation. The top of hopper walls are secured to one another with 12-gauge steel capping channel and the side hopper walls are secured to one another with 12-gauge steel corner molding. Capping channel and corner molding add structural strength to the hopper preventing it from becoming out of square over time. Sheet metal to sheet metal construction where hopper wall corners are butt-welded together without capping channel or corner molding lack the structural integrity required to maintain a square hopper.
The truck mounted slip-in propane or diesel asphalt reclaimer & reheater hopper floor is constructed of a one-piece steel plate. The portion of the hopper floor located beyond the rear hopper wall creates a worktable that is heated by the burner box. A heated worktable prevents asphalt from hardening while the operator makes repairs. When the material door is opened, asphalt flows onto the heated worktable rather than falling on the ground thus reducing material waste.
A truck mounted slip-in propane or diesel asphalt reclaimer & reheater can have horizontal and vertical, diamond-shaped, 10-gauge steel heat ducts that are welded from the front hopper wall to the back hopper wall and from one side of the hopper to the other side. The diamond shaped design prevents asphalt build-up on heat ducts. Heat ducts are continuously welded to ensure the structural integrity of the hopper. The truck mounted slip-in asphalt reclaimer & reheater rear hopper wall includes a single, large, fully insulated, guillotine-style door. A lever on the curbside spool valve controls movement of material door via a hydraulic cylinder. A detachable and fully adjustable shoveling apron attaches to the rear of the unit.
Hydraulic bi-fold top loading doors are a popular truck mounted slip-in asphalt reclaimer & reheater option. Steel loading doors are framed on square tubing with angle iron reinforced cross members. The area inside the loading doors is completely filled with insulation. Doors are hinged to the hopper corners with bolt-on, greasable pillow block bearings. A lever on curbside spool valve controls movement of material door.
Another popular option on the Falcon asphalt reclaimer & patch wagon is an arrow board or arrow stick mounted on either the front or rear hopper wall to provide visibility to oncoming traffic from the rear.

The Falcon truck mounted slide-in model is ideal for pothole repair, pothole patching, replacing utility cuts and making larger asphalt repairs. And, like every Falcon asphalt reclaimer & patch wagon, the truck mounted slide-in model has a combustion efficiency rating of over 90%. A combustion efficiency rating this high provides significantly lower fuel usage, lower carbon and NOX emissions and less sooty waste by-product responsible for dirty cad cell condition – lowering costs and helping the environment.
