The LC404 – The JT of Bitumen Loadout

Whether you’re a Cowboys fan or not, it’s hard to dispute that Johnathan Thurston is possibly the greatest player of all time.


He can do it all, and is adaptable enough to play virtually any position well. Much like our LC404, he’s the complete package.

What is the LC404 and what makes it the complete package?

The LC404 manages the loadout of your asphalt products in a safe and efficient manner to maximise the productivity of your plant. Loading out Asphalt at 160°C+ comes with inherent safety risks and a fair amount of data. It never ceases to amaze us just how often this data is written down on a piece of paper and copied over to spreadsheets; creating potential double-handling errors or worse.

With our LC404 module running the show, you get the following features:

  • Precise load out of product.
  • In-built Truck Safety functions to ensure the correct bin is opened only when the truck is in the correct position.
  • Job management on a clear HMI screen providing you and the site foreman real-time tracking of how much product has been used and auto-population of job parameters.
  • 3rd Party Software Integration allows all the data to be exported to your preferred software service for analysis, tracking and reporting.
  • External Database Integration for Product and Consumer information.
  • Optional Night Loading module that allows pre-entered deliveries to be safely loaded out after the operator has left the site.
  • End-of-Shift Reporting integrated with Accounting or MRP software.
  • All data is backed up to the cloud which allows for remote access to truck delivery information and bin weights. Bin weights can also be tracked over time to assist with production history.
