High-performance paving the focus for Vögele at CONEXPO 2023
Vögele plans to share a broad cross-section of its paving products during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 this March in Las Vegas, including machines from across its size and application range.
The road construction specialist will be showing a selection of its products designed specially for the North American market: the SUPER 700i Mini Class paver, in combination with the AB 220 extending screed; the SUPER 1703-3i 8-foot paver with the VF 500 front-mounted screed; and the SUPER 2000-3i Highway Class paver, in combination with the AB 600 extending screed. The Vögele range covers the full scope of applications in road construction, from paving narrow pedestrian and cycle paths in city areas, to urban and rural roads, through to highway rehabilitation.
In combination with the AB 220 extending screed, the SUPER 700i small paver can pave at widths between 3 feet 11 inches and 7 feet 3 inches. Fitted with cut-off shoes, the Mini Class paver even achieves a minimum pave width of just 1 foot 8 inches, and with bolt-on extensions a maximum width of 10 feet 6 inches. The Mini Class paver comes with the ErgoBasic operating system, an intuitive and well-organized concept incorporating all the basic functions for high-quality paving. They include clearly structured function and status indicators, different operating modes, glare-free backlighting for night-time jobs, and simple steering by a rotary controller. The ErgoBasic and ErgoPlus 3 operating systems are based on the same design concept and symbols, enabling users to switch easily between the different Vögele paver classes.
The SUPER 1300-3i is a highly compact paver yet features a maximum laydown rate of 385 tons per hour and a pave width of up to 16 feet 5 inches. Whether for a combined footpath and cycle path, a farm track or a minor road or square, thanks to the AB 340 extending screed the Compact Class paver has the pave width range to match. With cut-off shoes, a pave width of just 2 feet 6 inches is possible. The maximum pave width with the right bolt-on extensions is 16 feet 5 inches. This makes the SUPER 1300-3i ideal for compact paving.
With its compact dimensions and Pivot Steer brake, the SUPER 1703-3i 8-foot wheeled paver features excellent maneuverability, and enables pave speeds of up to 250 feet per minute. Achieving a maximum laydown rate of 770 tons per hour and pave widths ranging from 8 to 15 feet 6 inches, and fitted with bolt-on extensions up to 19 feet 6 inches, the Universal Class paver is ideal for large commercial applications.
The paver and screed are equipped with the user-friendly ErgoPlus 3 operating system. It makes controlling the machine, including the Niveltronic Plus system for automated grade and slope control, very easy and convenient. The Vögele EcoPlus low-emissions package cuts fuel consumption by up to 25 percent, depending on the application and workload, and significantly reduces noise. When equipped with Vögele RoadScan, the non-contacting temperature measurement system, checking and documenting the paving temperature is very easy.
Achieving a maximum laydown rate of 1,540 tons per hour and featuring a powerful 6-cylinder diesel engine, the SUPER 2000-3i tracked paver is particularly suitable for paving highways and large commercial areas. In combination with the AB 600 extending screed, the paver achieves a maximum pave width of 27 feet 11 inches, or even 25 feet 5 inches when fitted with bolt-on extensions.
