The 612 Genesis Kettle features a torsion tandem axle and low profile to make loading asphalt and skimming operations easier–improving operator safety and control when working over hot asphalt. The nine HP Honda electric start engine (available only with the ATECS model), 60 GPM flange mounted pump and dual draincock ports improve productivity. The innovative hood funnels asphalt oils and vapors back into the kettle when the hood is closed and resists splashing during transport. Electric brakes are standard on both axles.
Higher Asphalt Production
Genesis Kettles maximize heat retention by insulating all sides and the bottom of the tank with a full 2 1/2 inches of 1,000 degree insulation, keeping the heat centered on the material and creating a tremendous “R” value of 11.5. Surrounded by this shield of insulation, Genesis Kettles can cut fuel costs and melt more asphalt with less LP gas.
All Genesis Kettles feature a standard 60 gallon per minute flange pump, which delivers a tighter pump-end clearance between the rotor and end plate that allows for pumping heights of close to 200 feet versus 125 feet on conventional deck mounted pumps. The flange mounted pump system also allows you to perform quick pump maintenance, as all vital components are accessible from the outside of the kettle.
