Bomag packs new updates into its 2.4 metre pavers

2.4 metre pavers

The new CR 820 Series of 2.4 metre pavers from Bomag feature a new operator’s platform, new controls and improved visibility.

Delivering the same power and heavy-duty design as Bomag’s previous models, the new pavers feature a 160 hp diesel engine that meets stringent Tier 4 Final emissions standards, and offers ample reserve to efficiently power all paver functions as well as push fully loaded trucks up steep grades.

The paver’s 9.1 tonne hopper capacity offers more time between truck exchanges when paving parking lots, pavement overlays, development streets, county highways and interstate shoulders.

More news from Bomag:

Both the rubber track and tire models, the CR 820 T and CR 820 W respectively, are built with significant upgrades to the operator’s platform, which improve visibility as well as the operator experience.

The 2.4 metre pavers are equipped with a new dual swing-out seat and consoles that provide improved visibility from both the left and right sides of the paver.

Bomag’s exclusive SIDEVIEW swivels the seat and console outward at four differing angles to deliver unobstructed views to the sides of the paver and the screed end gates. The platform floor’s open-grate design also gives the operator direct-line sight of the screed spreading augers.

A new 18 cm multifunction colour screen display at each console provides easy viewing of critical operating functions, gauges, parameters and fault messages for quick troubleshooting at the jobsite to improve serviceability and paver uptime.

Furthermore, new blade-type toggle switches, each controlling a single paver function, improve switch reliability and provide fast, easy replacement anywhere and anytime.

A new sound-insulated composite engine hood delivers quieter paving to improve operator comfort, while its sloped design provides a clear view into the hopper from the operator’s seat.

Hopper wings are securely held in the up position with manual locks, improving safety while servicing the machine.

Frame Raise System

The CR 820 Series of 2.4 metre pavers boasts three-point suspension to float the paver over subbase irregularities and maintain preset screed slope and grade, delivering higher mat smoothness over commercial pavers with a fixed rear suspension. Raising and lowering the rear of the paver with the exclusive Frame Raise System allows the

operator to fine-tune the head of material at the augers to improve mat quality.  As well, Smartrac automatically maintains proper track tension at all times to increase track life and decrease downtime. 

The field-proven Stretch16 hydraulically extendible screed offers infinitely variable paving widths from 2.4metres to 4.9 metres and a maximum paving depth of 305 mm. Quick-connecting extension kits deliver a maximum paving width reaching 6.1 metres. The screed’s new automated screed lock keeps the screed securely in a raised position for transport, maintenance and storage.
