As the explosives industry began a conversion from package products to bulk ANFO in the ’60s, Tread expanded its line of equipment and began developing the first Treadbed bulk handling truck during this time. These robust structural ANFO Treadbed models were designed, product/application engineered, and operationally dedicated specifically for use in the explosives industry. They became the basis for all Treadbed models since then.
With the further introduction of bulk emulsions and various additives that gave the blaster the ability to custom mix product at the borehole, Tread expanded its bulk truck Treadbed offering to complement these new product applications by providing Blend, Pump, and Quad type trucks to meet the challenging requirements and conditions while in the field.
