Custom-built turners

SCARAB builds each straddle-type win-drow turner to customer specifications, based on site restrictions, materials, pad site construction, compost markets and business goals, by matching up the frame, drum design, engine, drive system and other components. Frame options vary from 8- to 24-feet wide, and Tier III engines are made by Cummins, Cat, Deere or Detroit Diesel and vary in power from 80 to 630 hp. Both hydraulic and belt-driven machines are available, as well as a patented independent suspension and track design which “floats” across terrain changes and minimizes the wear and tear inherent in fixed-track designs. Shown above is a unit with an 18-foot by seven-foot, hydraulic drum drive, and 540-hp CAT engine with D5 CAT tracks.

Other key features of SCARAB’s turners include: a load controller which prevents needless repairs caused by common operator error; easy maintenance access; state-of-the-art operator controls; computer-controlled components and remote diagnostics. Available drive systems include rubber tires (over 10 sizes available), full track and half-track (14- to 30-inch widths available), four-wheel drive and four-track drive, and drive tires in front with castors in back or transverse configura-tion. Plus, eight different drum/flail configurations and five different drum circumferences are available. Options include a spray system for water/compost starter, an anti-vandalism package, noise suppression system, automatic fire suppression, bi-lateral delivery systems, automatic lubrication, and numerous cab comfort features.
