|Featured in this picture is the front view of a Capitol Machine Model 125. At the top left of the this illustration it shows the air flow control valve that allows you to adjust the amount of air pressure that your machine blows through the hose. You will also see that this control valve is plumbed to a weighted pressure relief valve that controls any back pressure that you might have depending on the application. Underneath the air flow valve is a tachometer and hour meter. This is used to adjust the speed of the engine and also to help keep track of the hours since your last service. Mounted in the middle of the machine is a three way gear box that drives virtually every moving component on the machine. There are two electric clutches on our 125, one that controls the material and the other that controls the air. This allows you to do an air only application or cut the material flow off without having to close the material gate. In the back right you will see the access panel with a site glass that allows you to see down in the airlock system and the feeder box to inspect for clogging, foreign objects and possibly a seal that has gone bad. Any machine built after 1996 will have an access panel.
|This is a picture of Capitol Machines Heavy Duty, virtually impossible to destroy series 4 positive displacement blower. You are looking at the intake side of the blower without the canister intake installed. Typically in a perfect world set up this would be plumbed outside of your truck or trailer so that the blower takes in fresh material free air from outside of your rig. On the outlet side of the blower, which can’t be seen in this picture. It has been plumbed through our check valve system which allows air to travel in direction and prevents the material from backing up into your blower. Also featured in this illustration is the exhaust side of the engine. These pictures have been taken prior to the side panels being mounted. In an attempt to help our customers better understand the intricate details of this state of the art blowing machine. Again in what we would consider the perfect world set up the exhaust side of the engine would be plumbed outside of your truck or trailer with a heat resistant flex hose. We recommend this for several reasons, first and foremost safety, safety, safety! This will keep all harmful fumes out of the truck and protect your most valuable asset, your operator. It also keeps the machine components cool and assists in making all of them work to there optimal level and reach their intended life expectancy. Take care of your machine and it will take care of you.
|This is the front view of the gas powered Honda GX 690 air cooled engine that powers this custom built Model 125. It has an electric start with a recoil backup which guarantees that your machine will show up and show off every day on every job. It has a built in hour meter to help you better schedule your services. We strongly recommend that you put a Capitol air hood over the flywheel of the engine to help keep the material out and literally triple the life of the engine. The Honda engine also comes with a low oil sensor which serves as a safety feature that won’t allow the engine to start if it is low on oil. All Capitol Machine Model 125′s come with several different engine options. Air cooled gas Honda or Kohler 25 HP, Kubota water cooled diesel, Kubota water cooled gas or PTO.
|This is a picture inside the shredder box and the generous 18″ airlock system of a Capitol Machine Model 125. For illustration reasons this picture was taken before the short shredder shaft was installed and with the access panel off. We have designed our shredder box and airlock system so that you can access the inside in just minutes instead of hours. The access panel has a site glass so that you can visually look inside for any clogging, foreign objects or possibly a seal that has gone bad. When changing your seals all you have to do is take the panel off and replace one seal at a time. Each seal has 13 bolts holding it to the rotor. When you put your new seal on make sure not to over tighten. The seals on a Capitol our custom made and are the EXACT size with the proper amount of drag to keep your airlock blowing enormous amounts of material. Just make sure that each bolt is snug and no worries the bolt won’t back out. As you can see everything on a Capitol is built out of a very high gauge thick steal. The shaft’s are over 1″ in diameter and are one piece not two. I won’t say that they are impossible to tear up, but you have to be trying really hard. Just remember “Nothing blows like a Capitol”|
