Grade Control

• Automatic machine elevation by electrical controls through electronic sensors and referenced through four sensor units
• Hardware for dual stringline control (four corners) or “lock-to-grade” referencing
• Dual cross-slope sensor control for single-stringline paving

Elevation Control

• Manual or automatic


• Manual or automatic
• Counter rotation in manual mode
• Fully proportional sensing system for automatic steering control
• Electrical connections for right-hand or left-hand steering reference

Operator's Console

• Master switch for synchronized start and stop of all paving functions
• Engine controls and monitoring devices

Hydraulic Strike-Off

• Operator controlled for metering concrete flow to the enclosed vibrator and tamper bar chamber in front of profile pan
• Sections telescope for width adjustment
• Adjustable height


• Rated at 10,000 rpm at 4 gal/min (15.14 L/min)
• Eight vibrators standard with individual pressure-compensated flow control valves
• Operator-controlled hydraulic vertical lift
• Removable baffle plates between vibrators for use on super elevations

Paving Pan

• 46 in (1.2 m) long with power crown
• Over-built edges to compensate for edge slump
• Tracks and side forms adjust for running with both tracks on the ground, or one or both tracks on an adjacent slab
• Curb mold inserts installed quickly one either or both sides
• Sharp, square trailing edge for a better finish

Tamper Bar

• Hydraulically powered tamper bar with operator-controlled speed
• Staggered, double tamper bar arrangement to prevent “crusting in the vibration chamber


• 32” (81.3 cm) high side forms for containing enough concrete during deep pours


3D/Stringless Compatibility Package

Enables paver to integrate with systems from Trimble, Topcon, or Leica for 3D/stringless machine control (3D systems sold separately from the respective company)

Extension Kits

Available in different widths, these kits can expand the paving width to a maximum of 24 ft (7.3 m)

Additional Vibrators

Available for individual purchase for replacements or extended-width pours

Additional Four-Bank Vibrator Manifolds

Consult factory. Offers more utility when needed

Integral Curb Molds

Made to order for one or both sides of the paving pan

Center-Bar Inserter

For accurately-placed tie bars into the center of the slab

Quarter-Point Bar Inserter

For accurately-placed tie bars in wide pours

Side-Bar Inserter

Available in both manual and hydraulic configurations, these place side bars into the slab before the concrete exits the paving pan

Hydraulic Belt Finisher

Belt finisher reduces manual work

Final Finisher

Final finisher minimizes manual float work

Misting System

Evenly mists slab with water directly behind the paving pan

Hydraulic Up/Down Side Forms

Reduces manual adjustments

Pan Crown Position Indicator

Lighting Package

Bright, high-efficiency LED lighting added as needed

Automatic Reverse Steering

Smart Vibrator Upgrade

Allows monitoring and more precise control of individual vibrator frequencies
