The new 500 Series Tier 2 mainline pavers from Terex Roadbuilding’s Cedarapids Paving feature a 40-percent increase in power, up to 240 horsepower. This horsepower increase for all 552 rubber-tire and 562 rubber- and steel-track models enables the pavers to meet the power demands of Remix systems, electric screeds, rubber-track drive systems and full-width paving applications of up to 30 feet. Through improvements made to the front frame and bogie pivot, kingpin and bogie wheel bearings, hopper load-bearing capabilities have been boosted by 40 percent on the 552 rubber-tire pavers. Now all 500 Series pavers are capable of handling loads reaching 25 tons, delivering the extra surge capacity needed with the use of hopper inserts.
