“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.
