Cedarapids CR662RM Tier 4 Final RoadMix MTV and paver advances durability, improves operator comfort

The CR662RM RoadMix can be used on all paving lifts, including the critical base layer, to virtually eliminate all forms of material and thermal segregation.

Designed as both a material transfer vehicle (MTV) and paver to significantly increase utilization rates, the rubber track Cedarapids CR662RM RoadMix from BOMAG features a new 260-hp (191-kW) Tier 4 Final Cummins diesel engine that delivers the power needed for high production applications. Boasting a low, 21-psi fully loaded ground contact pressure, the CR662RM can be used on all paving lifts, including the critical base layer, to virtually eliminate all forms of material and thermal segregation. Unlike MTVs with empty wheel loads in excess of 75 psi, the low-psi rubber track RoadMix machine does not cause rutting on the base layer, can cross bridges fully loaded and is transported to the jobsite like a 10-foot paver, so contractors can finish mainline and airport paving applications quickly, efficiently and with high mat quality.
