It™s remote controlled! The remote control is light weight and durable and gives the operator total freedom to move about the operation. The remote features all the necessary functions, including vibrator adjustment and an emergency stop. The wireless remote control was designed for ultimate safety and visibility. This little 6.75 lb. (3.1 kg) package has twenty-one toggle switches, three control dials, five indicator lights, four variable controls for the vibrators, and a large red emergency stop button. Built-in safety features stop the machine if the remote would lose communication or if the remote control turns on its horizontal axis more than 60 degrees. The wireless remote features frequency hopping. The remote is constantly changing channels. Every 200 milliseconds it changes frequency to maintain contact with the machine. The remote can be tethered to the machine for areas that do not allow transmitting.
The GT-3400 can be right-side or left-side pour. You can pave with either stringline or go stringless. The G21 controls interface with stringless technology/3-D control systems. It features a revolutionary, high-powered trimmer, and changing molds is quick and easy with the new Hook-and-Go mold system. Its total length is less than 17 ft. (5.2 m) and the new three-track design features All-Track Steering. The GT-3400 is the beginning of a whole new class of curb and gutter machines.
The versatile GT-3400 is powered by a 136 hp (101.5 kW) electronic controlled Caterpillar® diesel engine with a remote mounted cooling package. The engine, coupled with state-of-the-art hydraulic circuitry, results in the most fuel efficient horsepower to work-performed ratio in the industry. The cooling package fan is driven by a hydraulic motor which allows the G21 controller to vary the fan speed to match the cooling demand. This results in less engine horsepower dedicated to the fan and a quieter operation.
The GT-3400 features the simultaneous trim/pour concept. The GT-3400 trimmer is the most powerful trimmer on the market today. GOMACO™s direct-drive trimmerhead is driven with a radial piston hydraulic motor. The trimmer™s closed-loop hydraulic circuit and radial piston motor provide 28,684 inch-pounds (3241 N-m) of torque at the trimmerhead. The 24 in. (610 mm) diameter trimmer is equipped with Kennametal teeth, and the trimmer™s width can be varied from 30 in. (762 mm) to 78 in. (1981 mm). The direct-drive auger system provides more torque and the hopper is designed for extra concrete capacity. These features provide high-production paving.
More GT-3400 features include the new piston style legs and the two-speed motor that provides a fast tracking speed of 125 fpm (38 mpm) for job-site mobility.
The GOMACO three-track GT-3400 is a multi-application machine, including curb and gutter, tight radii, safety barrier, bridge parapet, sidewalk, monolithic sidewalk and curb and gutter, recreational path and flat slabs up to 6 ft. (1.83 m) wide.
