Gomaco launched the GP4, a slipform paver capable of paving up to 40 feet wide, at ConExpo 2017 in Las Vegas.
The GP4 follows the launch of the 30-foot-wide capacity GP3 at the 2016 World of Concrete.
The new paver features a dual-telescoping roller frame with Smart Cylinders and Smart Telescoping for accurate frame widening and automatic width reference for accurate and easy steering setup, the company reports.
The roller frame telescopes up to 7 feet on each side for 14 feet total telescoping ability. It features Smart Pivot Arms for leg positioning and Smart Track Steering technology.
The GP4 also includes Extreme Steering capabilities that work with the G+ control system for track location and position identification. For transport, operators put the paver into Transport Mode by driving the legs around to the transport position with its full-steer tracks and slew drives on pivot arms. Once the legs are in transport position, the G+ is placed into “Transport” mode.
