Roadtec New Seat Design

September 28, 2010

To ensure paver operators have the ability to quickly visually check the rear auger of their machine to monitor material levels, Roadtec engineers designed a new paver seat to slide out to the side in a straight line instead of swinging out on an arc. The straight sideways movement of the seat results in a position that allows the operator excellent visibility down the side of the machine and also to the rear augers. This allows the operator to deliver mix evenly across the augers and thus across the entire leading edge of the screed plate, ensuring a segregation-free mat.
