Xtreme curb and gutter pavers from GOMACO handle challenging projects
GOMACO Corporation designs and builds their full line of concrete paving equipment to slipform the challenging projects, the tight radii, and the unique applications with a quality end product their owners take pride in.
GOMACO's Xtreme line of concrete curb and gutter machines will be featured in the GOMACO booth as part of the company's display. The new pavers feature Xtreme steering capabilities with rotary-sensored slew drives on each track, Xtreme intelligence with smart hydraulic cylinders combined with G+ control, Xtreme hydraulic packages with independent hydraulic travel circuits to each track with G+ control on each individual track's speed and smooth travel around radii, and Xtreme radius capabilities when paving with 3D guidance or stringline.
The GOMACO 3300 is GOMACO's multi-application paver with a symmetrical design for right-side and left-side paving. It can also be equipped with a mold mounting kit to undermount a paving mold and be utilized as a transverse slipform paver. The 3300 has been displayed for the first time ever this show season with a 12 foot (3.7 m) wide undermounted transverse paving mold. The GOMACO G+ control system is the magic behind the 3300's transverse paving ability. The operator simply uses G+ controls to turn the 3300's tracks 90 degrees into the transverse position and transverse paving configuration. In this configuration, the 3300 is capable of paving entrance/exit ramps, sidewalk/walking trails, dolly pads, polymer overlays, and more. Then, when flat paving applications are complete, the contractor can drop the paving mold, press the button on the G+ digital control screen to put the 3300 into curb and gutter mode, and it becomes a fully functional curb and gutter machine capable of slipforming a large variety of applications including tight radii. Its versatility is endless. GOMACO has also showcased a 3300 right-side mounted barrier mold so show attendees can see in person the 3300's versatility.
Other Xtreme curb and gutter machines in the GOMACO booth capable of slipforming tight radii are the Xtreme GT-3600 and Commander IIIx. The Xtreme Commander IIIx and GT-3600 are the curb and gutter machines contractors rely on for high-production, maximum quality curb and gutter, barrier, parapet, sidewalk, recreational path, small canal, water channel, and more, multi-application slipform machines. And both can slipform a 24 inch (610 mm) radius. Rotary-sensored slew drives and smart hydraulic cylinders allow the G+ control system to know the position of all three tracks of the curb and gutter machines to make as needed steering adjustments. Independent hydraulic travel circuits to each track allow G+ to control each track's speed through the radius. Both machines also feature the GOMACO three-sensor radius system when paving on stringline. The radius system allows the lead steering wand to leave the stringline and switch reference to the second sensor for traveling around the tight radius. The Xtreme turning capabilities also make them the ideal machines for navigating around job-site obstacles, getting on and off stringline and paving passes, and loading and unloading the machine for transport.
Rounding out GOMACO's curb and gutter machine line up recently displayed at CONEXPO-CON-AGG 2020 was the GT-3200, GOMACO's compact curb and gutter paver. The curb and gutter machines on display will feature the different stringline and stringless paving options from Topcon, Leica Geosystems and Trimble. GOMACO equipment has been paving with 3D systems for over 20 years and is able to seamlessly integrate with the three major suppliers of stringless systems.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
