More Performance and Flexibility

  • Powerful C4.4 engine supports increased feeder system capacity as well as hopper inserts for continuous paving
  • Tight 90º turning capability enables the paver to rotate and cover tracks on a return paving pass
  • Standard paving range utilizing the SE47 VT screed is 2.4 m - 4.7 m (7' 10" - 15' 4") with a maximum width of 6.0 m (19' 8")
  • Standard paving range utilizing the the SE50 VT is 2.55 m - 5.0 m (8' 4" - 16' 4") with a maximum width of 7.64 m (25')
  • Paving depths up to 300 mm (12") supports aggregate paving applications

Transport Made Easy

  • Paver and screed combination weight of 16.3 mt (35,926 lb) enables easy transport on a variety of trailer types
  • Length of less than 5.72 m (18' 9") and width of 2.55 m (8' 4") when equipped with the SE47 VT accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • Length of less than 6.0 m (19' 6") and width of 2.55 m (8' 4") when equipped with the SE50 VT and folding end gates accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • The front-loading angle of 15º and high front bumper clearance reduces the need for additional blocking when loading onto various trailer designs
  • Front, middle, and rear tie-down locations make securing the load efficient for quick travel to the next job site

Exceptional Mobility

  • Steel track undercarriage provides outstanding traction, and fast travel speeds for unmatched maneuverability around the job site
  • Counter-rotating tracks provide excellent maneuverability in tight quarters
  • Automatic track tensioning system, double carrier rollers and track guide plates help ensure the tracks are properly aligned and tensioned to provide smooth travel
  • Triple grouser track shoes with profiled polyurethane pads provide strength and durability while also delivering smooth travel and minimal base disturbance on uneven surfaces
  • Efficient track plow design pushes material away from the tracks and helps eliminate density variations caused by track compression

Smooth Material Flow

  • Low truck entry height and short front apron enhance material flow while simplifying clean out
  • Feeder system design with 355 mm (14") diameter augers provides consistent material flow across the screed for efficient flow at both narrow and wide paving widths
  • Confined auger chamber keeps material moving and helps eliminate stagnate patches
  • Independent control of each material feed sensor when utilizing a cut-off shoe, simply turn off the sensor for proportional feed system control

More Comfort

  • Optional ventilation system draws fumes from the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment
  • The single sliding console provides operation from either side of the machine for optimal visibility to curbs, edges, and transverse joints
  • Dual independent seats swing-out 40º beyond the platform for good visibility to curbs and obstacles Optimized height and integrated exhaust provide unobstructed visibility around the machine
  • Optional screed and paver mounted umbrellas offer protection from direct sunlight
  • Heated seat option delivers comfort in cool weather conditions
  • High visibility 76 mm (3") seat belt helps with crew safety compliance

Easy Viewing Displays

  • High-definition, touchscreen displays with adjustable brightness control for all types of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight
  • New touch screen operating display with simplified menu structures, intuitive graphics, and short-cut keys help simplify machine adjustments
  • Single-touch functions from main screen include screed heat, wash-down system, vibratory activation, ventilation system, and the accessory panel
