Resurfacing State Highway

“We were impressed with this tracked paver.”

A heavily traveled road winding through an idyllic landscape: The SUPER 1700-3i tracked paver resurfaces State Highway 74 in West Virginia.

Pennsboro | West Virginia

Heavy goods vehicle traffic is on the rise worldwide, increasing the strain on roads. One example of a road with heavy truck traffic is State Highway 74 in West Virginia. In the town of Pennsboro, the lanes had to be resurfaced for this reason along a 10-mile stretch. This was the perfect job for the new VÖGELE SUPER 1700-3i tracked paver from Kelly Paving, Inc., a subsidiary of Shelly & Sands, Inc., thanks chiefly to the high-traction, 14 in.-wide, rubber crawler tracks and electronically controlled separate drives. As a result, the 8-foot paver achieves paving speeds of up to 250 fpm and an impressive level of maneuverability and mobility. The ergonomic ErgoPlus 3 operating concept makes life a great deal easier for the paving crew. And that was a tremendous help for the team working in Pennsboro.

“ErgoPlus 3 makes life easy! I thought the paver operator’s console, which can be re-positioned even during paving, was really very practical.”

Russel Matics, Paver Operator Kelly Paving, Inc.

Paves the highest quality roads: the VÖGELE VF 500 Extending Screed, with its sturdy single-tube telescoping system and infinitely variable paving width from 8 ft. to 19 ft. 6 in. (with bolt-on extensions).

Maintenance and service made easy

The SUPER 1700-3i scores with high productivity. One reason is the high machine availability made possible not least by the user-friendly maintenance and service concept, as confirmed by Steve Schlosser, Equipment Manager at Shelly & Sands: “The engine cowling is very wide, just like the service panels. That speeds up the maintenance process tremendously.” What is more, sturdy and durable components made of wear-resistant materials minimize downtime. In critical cases, a VÖGELE service engineer can arrive on site in next to no time to advise and support paving crews.

“With the outstanding support of the WIRTGEN GROUP, it’s super easy finding solutions.”

Steve Schlosser, Equipment Manager Shelly & Sands, Inc.
