Resurfacing a Municipal Road in Millen, Georgia

“The high maneuverability is unbelievable.”

Mobile without a low-bed trailer: The new SUPER 1703-3i wheeled paver works on two job sites in Millen, Georgia, without a need for site-to-site transport.

Millen | Georgia

One of the many advantages of the VÖGELE SUPER 1703-3i 8-foot wheeled paver is its mobility. In Millen, Georgia, Ellis Wood Contracting, Inc. was able to complete two back-to-back construction projects without losing time, because it was not necessary to transport the paver on a low-bed trailer from the first job site to the second: Thanks to its wheeled undercarriage and permit for traveling on public roads, the SUPER 1703-3i can move fast at up to 12 mph. For residents of this residential and commercial area, that meant fewer backups, less stress, less noise.

Freedom of movement for users, thanks to ErgoPlus 3

The SUPER 1703-3i also gives screed operators the freedom they need to move around. This freedom is due to two remote control units for the VÖGELE VF 500 Extending Screed, which form part of the ErgoPlus 3 operating system. With these remote control units, users can change vital functions, such as the paving width, even when standing next to the paver, thereby optimizing the precision of the results. Screed Operator Dennis Butler was thrilled with the feature: “The remote controls give the operator a large radius of movement so that he can always find the most effective working position in any paving situation.”

“The new features make this Universal Class machine a truly SUPER paver.”

Anthony Hilton, Screed Operator Ellis Wood Contracting, Inc.

Pivot Steer for an extremely small turning radius

The new VÖGELE SUPER 1703-3i wheeled paver is highly mobile and not just on the road. Thanks to its outside turning radius of 21 ft. 4 in., it also displays excellent maneuverability on job sites, too. The Pivot Steer steering brake makes the VÖGELE wheeled paver even more agile: With this optional feature, the SUPER 1703-3i needs almost 50% less space to turn, namely only 11 ft. 6 in. This is a tremendous advantage, particularly on confined job sites, such as in downtown areas.
