More Performance and Flexibility

  • Powerful C4.4 engine delivers 110 kW (148 hp) of power that supports increased feeder system capacity as well as hopper inserts for continuous paving
  • Tight 90 degree turning capability enables the paver to rotate and cover tracks on a return paving pass
  • Standard paving range utilizing the SE47 V screed is 2.4 m - 4.7 m (8' - 15' 6") with a maximum width of 6.1 m (20')
  • Standard paving range utilizing the SE47 FM screed is 2.4 m - 4.7 m (8' - 15' 6") with a maximum width of 6.2 m (20' 6")
  • Paving depths up to 250 mm (10") supports aggregate paving applications

Transport Made Easy

  • Paver and screed combination weight of 15.3 mt (34,000 lb) enables easy transport on a variety of trailer types
  • Length of less than 5.65 m (18' 6") and width of 2.6 m (8' 6") accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • The front-loading angle of 15 degrees and high front bumper clearance reduces the need for additional blocking when loading onto various trailer designs
  • Front, middle, and rear tie-down locations make securing the load efficient for quick travel to the next job site

Exceptional Mobility

  • Mobil-trac ™ undercarriage provides exceptional mobility, outstanding traction, and fast travel speeds for unmatched maneuverability around the job site
  • Counter-rotating tracks provide excellent maneuverability in tight quarters
  • Self-tensioning accumulators, center guide blocks, and rugged internal belt cables help ensure durability
  • Rubber-coated components help shed asphalt and prevent accumulation
  • Efficient track plow design pushes material away from the tracks and helps eliminate cold patches caused by track compression

Smooth Material Flow

  • Low truck entry height and short front apron enhance material flow while simplifying clean-out
  • Feeder system design with 355 mm (14") diameter augers provides consistent material flow across the screed for efficient flow at both narrow and wide paving widths
  • Confined auger chamber keeps material moving and helps eliminate stagnate patches
  • Independent control of each material feed sensor when utilizing a cut-off shoe, simply turn off the sensor for proportional feed system control

More Comfort

  • Ventilation system draws fumes from the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment
  • Dual independent consoles provide operation from either side of the machine for optimal visibility to curbs, edges, and transverse joints
  • Dual independent seats swing-out 40 degrees beyond the platform for good visibility to curbs and obstacles
  • Optimized height and integrated exhaust provide unobstructed visibility around the machine
  • Optional screed and paver mounted umbrellas offer protection from direct sunlight
  • Heated seat option delivers comfort in cool weather conditions
  • High visibility 76 mm (3") seat belt helps with crew safety compliance

Easy Viewing Displays

  • High-definition, touchscreen displays with adjustable brightness control for all types of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight
  • New touch screen operating display with simplified menu structures, intuitive graphics, and short-cut keys help simplify machine adjustments
  • Single-touch functions from the main screen include screed heat, wash-down system, vibratory activation, ventilation system, and the accessory panel
  • Operating displays can be tailored to specific language requirements with multiple options available
  • Wash-down system includes level indication

Screeds that Deliver Quality

  • SE-Series screeds deliver excellent ride, density, and mat texture while providing superior adjustment capabilities
  • Screeds with front-mounted extenders and rear-mounted extenders are available
  • Cat Grade Control or Basic Grade Control options available

Low Owning and Operating Costs

  • Durable Cat C4.4 engine provides 110 kW (148 hp) of power and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emissions
  • Exclusive Eco-mode and Automatic Engine Speed Control reduce fuel consumption and lower sound levels for better comfort and communication
  • Conveyor bed plates and chain guards designed to minimize labor requirements and provide lower cost replacement
  • Maintenance-free high torque motors reduce service requirements for the auger and conveyor drive systems

Product Link™ Elite

  • Make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improve productivity, and lower owning and operating costs
  • Easily track location, machine hours, fuel usage, and idle time in real time
  • Diagnostic codes are made available through online web applications
  • Remote flash for easy software updates
  • Scheduled maintenance and SOS notification
  • Remote disable deactivates the engine for enhanced security
