Vogele’s new 8-foot Vision 5100-2 and 5103-2 pavers have no material-flow gates because independent conveyor and auger drives either automatically or manually adjust material flow to maintain the head of material in front of the screed. Vogele offers an optional hydraulic front apron that prevents forward spillage. As the hopper closes, the front apron rises. Wiring harness is simplified by Controller Area Network (CAN) bus design using single wires for most circuits. Vogele’s Niveltronic Plus automated grade and slope control system is integrated into the tractor and screed. The 5100-2 and 503-2 pavers are powered by 170-horsepower Cummins QSB 6.7 diesels.
