Volvo PF6160 and PF6170 Wheel-Mounted Pavers
July 15, 2011

asp_resize_editThe Volvo PF6160 and PF6170 wheel-mounted pavers are part of the PF6000-Series highway-class asphalt paver line and are powered by a 205-horsepower Tier 3-certified Cummins engine. A  level-load suspension design uses the two drive wheels and the center of the bogie hydraulic system. This provides consistent and even ground contact for stability. Both the PF6160 and the PF6170 come standard with the two-wheel front-wheel assist; however, the PF6170 can be configured with an optional four-wheel front-wheel assist for all-wheel-drive capability. The torque is adjusted based on the hopper load, optimizing the machine’s traction. The auger system is independent of the conveyor system with each of the two auger and conveyor drives using sonic sensors for more precise handling of material.
