Diesel Engine

Cummins QSB4.5 Four cylinder, 4-stroke 170 hp (127kw) @ 2500 rpm Tier 3 water cooled, turbocharged, after-cooled engine. Displacement of 275 cu. in. (4.5 liter), 12 volt electrical system, with 100 amp alternator

Track Drive System

Two heavy duty 12’ (3.65m) track systems, with 12” (30.5cm) wide, triple grouser steel track pads. Track components with sealed links, lifetime lubricated rollers, and grease gun type hydraulic track tension adjustment.

Paving speeds....0-30 fpm (9 mpm)

Travel speeds.....0-60 fpm (18 mpm)

Side clearance (distance from edge of slab to outer most portion of track) 29” (73.6cm) with standard two speed motors.


Extensions expand the paving width to 24 feet or 7.5 meters.

Power Drive System

Pump drive gear box is engine flywheel mounted, with hydraulic pumps flange-mounted and spline shaft engaged.

One variable volume pressure compensated pump developing a maximum of 64 gpm (243 lpm ) supplies the vibrator system. One variable volume pressure compensated pump developing a maximum of 49 gpm (185 lpm) pumps only the volume of oil that is required at any given time for grade elevation, tamper, and auxiliary functions.

All speed controlled functions remain at set flow rate regardless of changes in working load pressure for smooth, even extrusion of concrete.

Hydraulic Oil and Filtration

185 gallon (700 liters) main hydraulic reservoir with visual fluid indicator.

Industry standard filtration consisting of three sump filters and three 10 micron spin-on filters. Inline filters on hydraulic sensors.

Power Wash System

Hydraulically driven 4 gpm (15.14 lpm) pump delivers 2000 psi (138bar) water for cleanup and utility use.

On-board water storage capacity is 220 gallons (833 liters).

Elevation Control

Manual or automatic mode is operator selected.

Automatic machine elevation is maintained by the hydraulically powered post columns on each track assembly. Control is through the electronic sensor system and is referenced through four sensor units.

Control hardware allows dual string line (four corners) control or “lock to grade” referencing.


Operator selection of manual or automatic control.

Counter rotation of crawler tracks possible in manual mode.

Fully proportional sensing system for automatic steering control from grade reference.

Connections are provided for right hand or left hand steering reference.

Optional auto reverse is available.

Operator's Console

All functions of the machine are at the operator’s fingertips. Includes pressure gauges for all systems, one switch paving mode for ease of operation, and engine controls and monitoring devices.

All-around visibility by the operator while running the machine.

Spreader Auger & Hydraulic Strike-Off

16” (40.6cm) diameter split, reversible auger with hard-surfaced flighting.

Each side individually speed controlled driven and driven separately. Heavy-duty 29.9 cu. in. (490cc) hydraulic motors with 3.27 to 1 reduction for power to move low slump concrete at widths to 24 feet or 7.5 meters.

Spreaders are tied to auto-grade; but can be manually over-ridden at any time for metering concrete flow to the enclosed vibrator and tamper section in front of the profile pan.

Auger widens by section. Strike-off beam telescopes.

Hydraulic Vibrators

2.25” (5.7cm) diameter head hydraulic “L” shaped paving vibrators with individual pressure compensated controls (up to 12 controls).

Standard machine features 8 hydraulic vibrators with individual pressure compensated flow control valves located at the console (up to 16 vibrators optional).

Vertical adjustment is operator controlled through hydraulic power lift system.

Removable baffle plates between vibrators for use on supers.

Tamper Bar

Hydraulically powered tamper bar with speed controlled by the operator.

Tamper bars are staggered for smoother paving.

Double tamper bar arrangement to prevent “crusting” in vibration chamber

Profile Pan

46” (1.17m) profile pan with power crown for straight (roof top) crown configurations.

Profile pan automatically adjusts for grade variations up to 24” (60.9cm) during the paving process.

End pan over-build to compensate for edge slump.
Profile pan, tracks, and sideforms automatically adjust from running with both tracks on the ground to one or both tracks running on adjacent slab with no modification.

Curb mold inserts can be installed quickly on either or both sides.

Profile pan comes with sharp square trailing edge for a better finish.


32” (81cm) high sideforms for containing enough concrete during deep pours.
