Roadtec replaced the RP-150 and RP-155 pavers with two new 8-footers compliant with Tier 3 emissions standards, the RP-170 rubber-tired machine and RP-175 on rubber tracks. Caterpillar C6.6 engines increased horsepower 12 percent, and Roadtec added 40 percent more fuel capacity, putting 95 gallons on board the RP-175 and 90 gallons on the RP-170. New, hydraulically driven cooling fans reduce paver noise. New slide-out seat design and operator control layouts that had been introduced on Roadtec’s 10-foot models are on the RP-170 and RP-175.

other Roadtec, Inc. products

A new grade and slope control automation system designed specifically for cold planers is available for the Roadtec RX-500, RX-700 and RX-900 milling machines.

Roadtec traded axles and gears for hydraulic motors that control each wheel of the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy to make the material transfer vehicle easier to shift and operate.
