Dynapac upgrades SAD2500CS high-density asphalt paver
Tina Grady Barbaccia | November 14, 2012
Dynapac‘s upgraded SD2500CS high-density asphalt paver is powered by an interim Tier 4 certified Cummins QSB 6.7 water-cooled turbo-diesel engine rated for 200 horsepower at 2,200 rpm.
The machine was originally introduced in Europe in 2011.
The model’s “infinitely variable eco mode” engine feature is said to produce less noise and decrease fuel consumption as the operator tunes the rpm level to a given working situation’s requirements.
The paver also can be outfitted with Dynapac’s patented VarioSpeed drive option with automated load sensing. VarioSpeed provides continuous computerized rpm optimization that can save up to 15 percent in fuel costs and promote increased engine life.
A choice of high density, tamping bar screeds work with the SD2500CS. Dynapac’s Vario screeds, the V5100TVE or V6000TVE, have a minimum work width of 8 feet and maximum work width of 32 feet. A foldable side shield for the screed helps the paver’s operator comply with transportation regulations. The side shield folds directly behind the screed, which eliminates overhang on the left and right side during transportation on a bed trailer.
Hydraulic push rollers minimize impact from the truck during asphalt delivery to the paver, acting as a shock absorber for the paver.
The operator’s platform can slide hydraulically from one side to the other with a safe-impact system to provide safe docking for the operator. An optional “weather house” provides a hardened front screen with three wiper blades, large side windows and Plexiglas screens on the lower left and right part of the platform.
What’s more, is the new remote control and color screed display that is now offered. Energy-saving LED working lights and an adjustable camera system have also been added to allow an operator to easily monitor the application.
