GREENVILLE, SC – As part of its expanding sales force, Road Dryer LLC has added new authorized dealers for provinces in Eastern Canada. Montreal Tracteur/Montreal Tractor (MTI) and its sister company Hot Mix & Aggregate (HMA) now exclusively represent Road Dryer’s line of pavement-drying units in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland. Both dealerships focus on providing customers with excellent service, unparalleled technical knowledge and competitive pricing in their representation of quality new, used and rebuilt equipment, accessories, parts and components. MTI, with headquarters in Baie D’Urfé, Quebec, was founded in the early 1980s and works with customers across Canada, the United States and worldwide. HMA, which was founded in 2010 in Orangeville, Ontario, concentrates its efforts primarily in Ontario.
Road Dryer’s trailer and truck-mounted pavement drying units quickly dry asphalt and concrete pavement, allowing crews to pave or apply surface treatments or striping after just one pass. The units blow heated air up to 400° F (204° C) directly downward through multiple nozzles, eliminating the risk of “flying objects” and allowing traffic to flow in nearby lanes – thus reducing congestion caused by traffic restrictions. The RD-1200 XT can be adjusted for drying widths of 8 to 12 ft (2.4 to 3.7 m). Because it dries pavement on demand, the Road Dryer unit provides flexibility for contractors and government agencies to meet timetables by minimizing delays from weather or project-related wet conditions.
According to Maxime Petrin, product manager for the Road Building Division at Montreal Tracteur Inc., “We’re delighted to offer our clients a tool to take control of their time schedules. We cannot control Mother Nature, but the Road Dryer will become the ‘ace-up-your-sleeve’ tool that will give our clients more control over their jobsite.”
“The Road Dryer will help our clients extend their asphalt paving season. They will be able to reduce their downtime and be more efficient on the job site, while improving the mat quality. Five years from now, I think every large asphalt road building contractor will have a Road Dryer, or two, in their fleet,” added Brian Keveryga, general manager for HMA.
“All of us at Road Dryer are excited to partner with Montreal Tracteur and HMA. They have a great reputation in Canada and worldwide, and they are doing an outstanding job spreading our message and marketing our equipment,” said Todd Toole, operations manager for Road Dryer, based in Greenville, SC.
