Page 50 of 75 | December 2017 51 highway contractor | staff report Our editors' list of top roadbuilding products in 2017 features the latest pavers, rollers and other machines. Pavers Vögele's Super 1700-3i, 1703-3i universal class pavers Vögele's new universal class 8-foot pavers, the Su- per 1700-3i tracked paver and Super 1703-3i wheeled paver, offer several new features the company says are firsts for the North American market. Vogele calls the canopied machines "universal class" because they're designed for work in both confined conditions and on highway jobsites. The Super 1700-3i and 1703-3i have a maximum pav- ing width of 19 feet, 6 inches with the front-mounted VF 500 Extending Screed and hydraulic bolt-on exten- sions. The ErgoPlus 3 allows the screed to be adjusted from 8 feet to 15 feet, 6 inches without the bolt-on extensions. The receiving hopper for the machines has a capac- ity of 14.3 tons with laydown rates of up to 770 tons per hour. The pavers have a liquid-cooled 4-cylinder, 179-horsepower Cummins diesel engine running at 2,000 rpm normally, and at 1,700 rpm in ECO mode. The Super 1703-3i is available in 6×4 and 6×6 drive. Terex Bid-Well upgrades remote controls for roller paver lines Terex Bid-Well has three new remote control options that enable setting adjust- ments to its 2450, 3600 and 4800 roller pavers from ground level while paving. Two tethered control boxes can be attached in any position on the paver's frame. Settings that can be changed include paver speed, engine throttle, power crown adjustment and paving width. Control options include an entry-level keypad control or a local control with a touchscreen display. Also available is a radio remote control panel that allows a worker to carry machine controls and operate the pave from ground level while anywhere around the machine. Volvo's new P4410B – a commercial-heavy highway crossover paver Volvo Construction Equipment's new P4410B tracked paver adds a powerful engine to a compact machine platform. Designed for both light highway and heavy commercial, it features a front-extending screed and the ability to install most auto-grade and slope systems. The P4410B comes equipped with a 98-inch transport width. It's 17 feet, 10 inches long and has a 155-horse- power Deutz Tier 4 Final engine that's 5 percent more efficient than its predecessor. The P4410B features the Ultimat 16 screed that extends to 16 feet. With exten- sions, it offers an 18-foot paving width. Volvo also added 20-inch foldable walkways. There's a 60-inch low deck, 360-degree visibility and swing console with controls common to Volvo pavers. The built-in SmokEater extraction system collects and dis- poses hot mix fumes.
