Wirtgen’s acquisition of Belgian slipform paver maker SGME has finally produced a North American curb and gutter paver, the SP15, a three-track machine that wields an offset mold to the right or left side. The 27,500-pound slipformer handles barrier-wall molds up to 4 feet 3 inches high and offset paving widths up to 6 feet. The three-way adjustable trimmer can cut up to 48 iunches wide. The SP15 is powered by a 123-horsepower Deutz four-cylinder diesel. It is expected to sell for about $220,000.
