The AB 500 Extending Screed combines with all VÖGELE tractor units featuring a basic width of 2.5m. Thanks to its unique single-tube telescoping system for infinite variation of pave width, it is ideal for a wide field of applications. The screed extends hydraulically from 2.55m to 5m and builds up with bolt-on extensions to a maximum width of 8.5m.
Features & Benefits
Redesigned side plates
With the particularly ergonomic, hydraulically controlled side plates, all adjustments can be made comfortably and safely from the screed‘s walkway. The mechanical side plates are very easily adjustable in height.
Excellent floating and paving behaviour of the screed
The optimized geometry of the tamper bar and screed plates allows for an even flatter screed planing angle, improving the floating behaviour of the screed. The result is excellent compaction plus enhanced evenness.
Highly efficient screed heating
New, powerful generators provide an even greater heating capacity. The screed heats up more quickly and evenly thanks to the enhanced heating performance.
Safe and convenient ascent
The middle ascent allows the operator to acess his platform quickly and conveniently. A wide, vibration-damped walkway makes for safe and comfortable working.
Hydraulic crown adjustment
Hydraulic crown control is provided as standard for the AB 500 and the AB 600 screeds. Adjustment is carried out swiftly and precisely using the push-buttons on the screed console.
Ergonomic screed console
The robustly designed screed consoles are perfectly equipped for tough job-site conditions. The brilliant colour display is easy to read from any angle. The SmartWheel offers two speeds for screed width control with absolute precision.
