Power Curbers & Power Pavers introduced two new concrete slipform machines during the ConExpo 2017 in Las Vegas.
The Power Paver 2400 Series slipform pavers, including the SF-2404 four-track machine and SF-2402 two-track machine, are designed for conventional paving, offset paving and custom applications. They are designed for residential and intermediate paving projects up to 24.6 feet wide.
The telescoping frame on the SF-2404 was made to facilitate easy width adjustments. The company also added one-touch track positioning and simple steering controls to make it easier to operate.
The SF-2404 has a 138:1 track drive gear ratio the company reports can offer smooth paving at low speeds. Operators can control vibrators individually or globally, as well as monitor and record vibrator speeds with the optional Smart Vibe system.
The series is ready for stringless operation from the factory and can be used with Leica, Topcon and Trimble 3D/GPS control systems.
The Power Curber 7700, pictured below, is designed for offset applications and paving as wide as 20 feet. The company designed it for versatility, with contractors being able to use it for road paving or barriers, variable barriers, bridge parapets and ditches.
For paving, the 7700 offers hydraulic sides, edge overbuild, and crowning capabilities, with a tamper bar, auger or plow and finishers as options.
The machine also features a fully hydraulic telescoping frame for switching from offset to paving mode. The Simple Steer Track Positioning System feature aligns all four crawlers for switching modes.The 7700 also is stringless capable.
