Dynapac is launching a new range of tracked asphalt pavers with advanced features designed to appeal to owners, operators and service crews as well as to offer environmental benefits. Six new tracked asphalt pavers, with a working width from 2 m to 14 m, will be introduced by Dynapac in January 2011. The most remarkable features are the slidable operator's platform on SD-series and the safe-impact-system as option for improved and safe docking of truck. All pavers have the option of larger and wider hoppers (elongated on SD2550 C / SD2550 CS), wider conveyors and slimmer auger drives, which lead to a smooth material transport through the paver with less segregation and excellent paving results. The new paver range has been designed to achieve high quality paving results through operational features such as an electronically controlled main drive. This keeps the pre-selected paving speed constant, allowing even an inexperienced paver operator to start and stop with minimised marks. The new models, equipped with screed, have a total weight of 18.5t to 19.6t. Service is made simple by many effective designs, such as concentrating pumps to one side. The total number of hydraulic couplings has been reduced significantly. This also reduces the risk of leaks. Many of the enhancements provide environmental benefits like reduced fuel consumption or quieter operation. Efficiency enhancements have saved several kW in the operation of a typical model in the range, with consequent improvements in the running costs and noise.
