Bomag adds 10-foot highway-class paver with new features, improved operator experience
BOMAG 10-ft (3.0-m) pavers now include significant upgrades to the operator's platform, which improve visibility and the operator experience. New dual swing-out operator stations feature BOMAG's SIDEVIEW innovation in which the seat and console swivel outward at four differing angles to deliver unobstructed views to the sides of the paver and the screed end gates. An open-grate design on the platform floor affords the operator direct-line sight of the screed spreading augers.
The new large, 7-in (178-mm) multifunction color screen display at each console provides easy viewing of critical operating functions, gauges and parameters plus provides fault messages for quick troubleshooting at the jobsite to improve serviceability. New blade-type toggle switches, each controlling a single paver function, improve switch reliability.
The pavers' new sound-insulated composite engine hood delivers quieter paving to improve operator comfort. The hood's sloped design provides a clear view into the hopper from the operator's seat. Under the hood, a 260-hp (194-kW) Tier 4 Final engine on the wheeled machine and a 225-hp (168 kW) on the tracked machine delivers ample power for full-width paving, while having enough power in reserve to operate the screed's generator and lights for nighttime paving application. On typical applications, fuel consumption for the new highway class pavers averages less than 4 gal/hr (15.1 l/hr).
BOMAG has simplified its 10-ft (3.0-m) class paver offering, reducing the number of models from four to two. Legacy CR 452 and CR 552 wheeled pavers are now replaced by the CR 1030 W paver, while the rubber track CR 462 and CR 562 pavers now bear the CR 1030 T identification. These adaptable pavers tackle a range of applications from interstate and state highway to airport, heavy industrial and large commercial projects.
While closely identifying with BOMAG family of pavers, the new CR 1030 Series retains many of the legacy Cedarapids designs that have helped contractors meet mat smoothness specifications and productivity goals for decades. Frame Raise and Three-Point Suspension mitigate segregation issues, improve mat quality and provide superior traction. The Smartrac system found on CR 1030 T pavers automatically maintains proper track tension at all times to significantly increase track life and decrease downtime.
Equipped with the tried-and-true Stretch 20 hydraulically extendible screed, these machines deliver infinitely variable paving widths from 10-20 ft (3.0-6.1 m) and a maximum paving width of 30-ft (9.1-m) with extensions. Electric-over-hydraulic controls provide fast, simple and accurate screed adjustments, while the Stretch 20's Screed Assist System eliminates screed setting to improve mat smoothness. New hose routing and wire harness designs improve screed system reliability in the field.
BOMAG CR 1030 W Series pavers have a standard 16.7-ton (15.1-tonne) hopper capacity and the robust hopper design delivers up to a 27-ton (24.5-tonne) capacity when equipped with an insert. The CR 1030 T Series pavers have a standard 14-ton (12.7 tonne) hopper capacity up to a 22-ton (20-tonne) capacity when equipped with an insert. These new pavers come standard with a three-year complimentary subscription to BOMAG Telematic.
