The 11,700-pound Super 700 asphalt paver from Vogele is a compact machine that reaches confined job sites with a track gauge of 3 feet 7 inches and clearance width of 4 feet. The electrically heated AB 200 V screed paves widths from 20 inches to 10 feet 6 inches. The screed allows paving up to within 2 inches of obstacles such as walls, trees, and curbs. Each wing of the 5.5-ton hopper can be raised independently, and there are three individual, reversible drives for the conveyor and each auger. The Super 700 is powered by a liquid-cooled Deutz diesel rated at 57 horsepower.
