Terex Bid-Well unveiled its 3600RC remote-control paver at its annual service school in South Dakota before 60 paver operators from around the country.
The Roller Paver is designed for paving bridge decks, as well as flatwork and roads. It can be operated remotely from the ground, which improves safety. Remote control also allows the operator to adjust machine settings without having to call down to a worker to make the change or to stop paving operations.
“Our remote-control units give the operator the flexibility to move away from the platform and have greater control over machine settings,” the company says.
The remote control governs engine, power legs, machine and carriage travel speed functions and can also control accessories. The operator can also operate from the machine’s console if need-be.
It has a maximum paving width of 86 feet, a truss depth of 3 feet and an operating weight of 7,760 pounds.
The unveiling was at the company’s two-day annual service school, which involves a day of classroom instruction and a day of hands-on training on a concrete pour with the company’s service technicians.
