High Return on Investment
  • Exclusive 70 kW integrated generator delivers fast, reliable screed heating and is designed for long life by the same team that developed the D7E electric drive dozer
  • Fast heating screed leads to more daily production, heating time in as little as 15 minutes
  • Excellent turning capability, fast travel leads to increased production
Technology That Works For You
  • Pave Start Assistant saves set-up profiles for repeatable use on future job sites including Grade Control settings, speed, paving width, paving depth, slope, crown, height, and other set-up features
  • A hopper level sensor (option) with temperature indication keeps the operator informed of material height and delivery temperatures, indicators are located in each tractor display
Quality Results, Higher Earnings
  • Versatile screed designs deliver excellent ride, density, and mat texture while providing superior adjustment; available with front-mount extenders, or rear-mount extenders
  • Tow-point utilizes exclusive linkage design for optimal screed flotation
  • Exclusive 2-speed proportional control on the screed extenders
Low Owning and Operating Costs
