  • Publication number: 20110085860
    Abstract: A pothole repair system for completely repairing potholes through the operation of a loader vehicle and connected implement. The implement generally includes a supporting structure adapted to mount to the loader, such as a skid steer loader or excavator, a hopper-style bucket connected to the supporting structure, the bucket having a lower opening closable by an actuated gate, a first impact device connected to the supporting structure to engage a road surface in a reciprocating manner, wherein first impact device has an interchangeable tamper end, a second impact device connected to the supporting structure to engage a road surface in a reciprocating manner, wherein the second impact device has an interchangeable chisel end. The impact devices may be raised and lowered via linkage assemblies or may be fixed to the supporting structure. Other tools, such as air nozzles may be used to assist in repairing the potholes.

  • Publication number: 20110013982
    Abstract: The invention provides an apparatus for compacting soils at an excavation site. The apparatus generally attaches to the bucket attachment linkage and allows an operator to compact soils using the boom and arm of the excavator. Included is a method for compaction wherein the apparatus does not interfere with the bucket for soil removal, but is easily rotated into place when needed for compaction.

  • Publication number: 20090175682
    Abstract: A vibratory plate compactor with aggregate feed system includes a frame, a soil compacting plate and a drive mechanism, such as a hydraulic motor, is mounted on the frame and has a rotatable drive shaft which uses a V-belt to drive a vibratory actuator on the tamping plate. The frame also carries a hopper that uses a screw conveyor to force the stored aggregate into a vertical conduit. A tamping piston forces aggregate out of the vertical conduit, through apertures in the compactor plate and compacts the loose soil with a multitude of blows, the vibratory plate is then actuated to further compact the aggregate. The process is repeated until the cavity is filled and compacted to the required density. The vibratory plate compactor with aggregate feed system is ideally suited to filling and compacting aggregate in used automobile tires that are used in the formation of a tire wall.

  • Publication number: 20020168226
    Abstract: A control system for use with an asphalt paving machine receives inputs from an operator interface for inputting a desired tamping frequency or a desired tamping rate (tamps/ft) and a speed sensor that produces a signal indicative of the speed of the asphalt paver. The control system includes an automatic mode and when in automatic mode the system modifies the tamping frequency to better achieve a desired number of tamps per foot traveled irrespective of speed.

  • Publication number: 20020141823
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an apparatus that tampers paving material and distributes the paving material evenly across a screed plate before the paving material is leveled by the screed plate. The apparatus includes a tamper bar for compacting material, a drive connected to the tamper bar, and a biasing member. The drive intermittently forces the tamper bar downward into contact with the paving material at a desired speed and to a desired depth. The biasing member is connected to the tamper bar and biases the tamper bar upward against the drive such that the biasing member raises the tamper bar out of contact with the paving surface after the drive forces the tamper bar downward.
