In College Station, construction activities began at the south entrance of the new residential area. The inset paver paved the concrete on a lime-stabilized sub-base over a length of 670 m in two passes, 11.5 m wide, 200 mm thick, and with a crown of three percent. In this process, the machine stood out thanks to its quiet operation and technical features such as the automatic super smoother. “It’s amazing how the super smoother eliminates unevenness,” said Mr. Schinzler, delighted with the extremely flat concrete surface. The same goes for the SP 62i’s ease of operation, which the team was able to experience during a training session at the Wirtgen Center for Training & Technology in Nashville before purchasing it.
“All of our employees are very familiar with the paver’s operation and feel comfortable working with it,” said the operations manager. In addition, he praised the Wirtgen Group’s customer service in the USA: “The support we receive when we have technical and operational questions is fantastic. Their employees are always there for us, 24 hours a day.”
