Part of a new series of wheel-mounted asphalt pavers from Ingersoll Rand, PF-6160 and PF-6170 feature a hopper capacity of 14.4 tons and a production rate of 820 tons/hour. With a 10-foot screed, maximum paving width is 26 feet. The auger system works independently of the conveyor system, and sonic sensors on these two systems provide precise material flow. Self-cleaning chains on the conveyor system are automatically tensioned. A hydrostatic, direct-traction drive system eliminates 70 percent of all mechanical drive-train components to reduce maintenance costs, says IR.
