The Volvo ABG designed screed heats up evenly and quickly up to three degrees every minute. This provides improved fuel efficiency and faster start up times.
The Volvo ABG designed screed heats up evenly and quickly up to three degrees every minute. This provides improved fuel efficiency and faster start up times. The robust screed design produces a consistent, high quality mat that increases productivity.
Two screed mounted control units provide operators with easy access to the screed and adjustment settings. The Screed Control Unit (SCU) allows the operator to easily control the functions of the screed and material flow. The newly designed SCU is flexible and can be rotated in any direction, moved up and down for easier operator use.
Extensions are added or removed in minutes, with no special tools required, thanks to Volvo's quick coupling system. It takes less time to set up, saving time and money. The system enables the paving crew to quickly attach or remove extensions to meet various jobsite requirements.
The screed tamper bars can be electrically heated for better performance and a smooth finish. The fully hardened tamper bar significantly extends the life time of the component. Tamper bars are easily replaced, which saves money and increases uptime while maintaining pre-compaction efficiency.
Volvo screeds have four guide tubes for each hydraulic extension. The rigid tubes work together to prevent the screed extensions from twisting when high forces are exerted on them. This produces a consistent, uniformly compacted smooth surface.
