Replacing the Super 600, Vögele's tracked Super 700 mini paver offers a maximum pave width of 3.2 m (10.5 ft).
Powered by a 45-kW (60-hp) Deutz engine with ECO Mode, Vögele says the design of the Super 700 allows a wide range of paving applications on a variety of job sites. With a track gauge of just 1.1 m (3.6 ft) and a clearance width of 1.2 m (3.9 ft), the machine is suitable for minor to medium jobs such as backfilling trenches with aspalt, surfacing footpaths or cycle paths, or paving asphalt on traffic areas or small roads.
Landscaping is another potential application for the new Vögele paver. Putting in floors inside factory halls, basements, or garages puts high demands and stresses on equipment such as pavers. Vögele says the Super 700 mini paver is a good fit for such applications because of its compact design and heightened maneuverability.
The AB 200 extending V version screed (with vibrators in the basic screed and the extending units) is specially designed for use with the SUPER 700. The screed has a basic width of 1.1 m (3.6 ft) and extends hydraulically up to 2 m (6.7 ft). Bolt-on extensions increase the pave width of the AB 200 V to a maximum of 3.2 m (10.5 ft).
For pave widths smaller than the paver’s basic width of 1.1 m (3.6 ft), a special system for pave width reduction was developed to allow infinite variation in width between 1.1 to 0.5 m (3.6 to 1.6 ft) without a need for conversion. As the screed floats on the mix even with the system for pave width reduction fitted, the paver always achieves optimal precompaction, claims the company.
Like all Vögele screeds, the AB 200 V is heated electrically. The company says that that feature guarantees a uniform distribution of the heat on the sole plates of the screed’s basic unit, extending units, and bolt-on extensions. The system quickly heats up the screed to operating temperature and works absolutely reliably, suitable conditions to achieve a uniform surface texture.
