Advantages and Features

More Performance and Flexibility

  • Powerful C4.4 engine supports increased feeder system capacity as well as hopper inserts for continuous paving
  • Tight 90º turning capability enables the paver to rotate and cover its tracks on a return paving pass
  • Standard paving range utilizing the SE47 VT screed is 2.4 m - 4.7 m (7' 10" - 15' 4") with a maximum width of 6 m (19' 8")
  • Standard paving range utilizing the the SE50 VT is 2.55 m - 5.0 m (8' - 15' 6") with a maximum width of 6.77 m (22' 3")
  • Paving depths up to 300 mm (12") supports aggregate paving applications

Transport Made Easy

  • Machine weight of less than 14.5 mt (32,000 lb) paver and screed combination enables easy transport on a variety of trailer types
  • Length of less than 5.7 m (18' 9") and width of 2.55 m (8' 4") when equipped with the SE47 VT accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • Length of less than 6.0 m (19' 6") and width of 2.55 m (8' 4") when equipped with the SE50 VT and folding end gates accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • The front-loading angle of 17º and high front bumper clearance reduces the need for additional blocking when loading onto various trailer designs
  • Front, middle, and rear tie-down locations make securing the paver highly efficient for quick travel to the next job site

Exceptional Mobility

  • Wheel undercarriage provides exceptional mobility and fast travel speeds for unmatched maneuverability around the job site
  • Excellent traction is delivered through the 17.5 R25 radial drive tires
  • Front-wheel assist option provides power to the rear set of bogie wheels for excellent performance in tough conditions
  • All-wheel drive option utilizes a flow divider to deliver power to both sets of front bogie wheels for additional pulling power
  • High ground clearance of 197 mm (7.8") helps avoid storm drains, curbs, and other obstacles

Smooth Material Flow

  • Optimized hopper design with low truck entry height and short front apron enhances material flow while simplifying clean-out
  • Enhanced feeder system with 355 mm (14") diameter augers provides consistent material flow across the screed for efficient flow at both narrow and wide paving widths
  • Confined auger chamber keeps material moving and helps eliminate stagnate patches
  • Independent control of each material feed sensor when utilizing a cut-off shoe, simply turn off the sensor for manual proportional feed control

More Comfort

  • Optional ventilation system draws fumes from the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment
