Intuitive Operation and Maximum Precision during Concrete Paving
The paving crew is already extremely familiar with the WIRTGEN SP 62i’s operating concept and feels right at home using the machine. The machine has been used for several other projects and now has a few engine hours under its belt. One such project was completed about a year ago in the Southern Pointe residential area:

When they first encountered the new placer/spreader, the pros from Larry Young Paving Inc. were pleasantly surprised. “We already know the basics of how to operate and control the WPS from the paver,” says Ronnie Carter, assistant project manager at Larry Young Paving Inc. The short amount of time required to become familiar with the machine saves time and money, meaning that concrete paving can begin as quickly as possible. The paving crew also had nothing but good things to say about the remote control to adjust the height of the WPS’ strike-off wall. This makes it possible to conveniently adjust the height of the placed concrete remotely, for instance from the paver. This feature wasn’t introduced solely for reasons of convenience, however; it also contributes to perfect paving results. This is because on the paver, the operator can easily view and assess the fill level of the compaction chamber and the quantity of concrete being placed.
