Carlson Paving Products has introduced the CP100 II, the next generation of the company’s heavy duty commercial paver.
The new platform delivers enhanced efficiency and torque figures compared to its predecessor, the CP100.
The new generation paver is equipped with an all-new Cummins QSF 3.8 turbocharged Tier IV Final engine, which produces 100 hp at 2,200 rpm.
As well, the CP100 II includes a one-piece forward tilting hood and large side doors that provide easy serviceability to the machine’s engine, hydraulics, and electrical.
“For contractors across North America, the CP100 has earned a reputation as being the most reliable heavy-duty commercial platform attaining unmatched mat quality,” said Tom Travers, sales and marketing manager for Carlson.
“The CP100 II maintains this tradition by taking the platform to new heights in longevity, material throughput and paving performance.”
With improved travel speeds up to 78 metres per minute, the CP100 II features an all-new undercarriage complete with a standard 35 cm poly-pad tracks. The largest planetary drive hubs in its class provide optimum pushing power, and are combined with seven heavy-duty bogies and single return idler that give the track system greater traction, manoeuvrability and longer life cycle.
The CP100 II also features the Carlson-exclusive horizontally-sliding damper doors, a feature that keeps obstructions, such as utilities boxes, from damaging them while open. Clean out of the hopper is simplified via the flip up apron and between-the-tracks conveyors, eliminating daily under the hopper cleaning.
The paver comes standard with dual control consoles that allow full control of the platform from either side. As well, the CP100 II’s operator stations feature dual electric over hydraulic steering joysticks, intuitively organized rocker switches and 18 cm full colour touchscreen LED display.
With full control of the heat management system, material feed, auxiliary functions and fluid gauges at the fingertips of the operator, the CP100 II provides contractors intuitive control of the paver.
The platform also features hard-corded remotes as standard with material flow and screed function controls all at the push of a button.
Available in two and three-man configurations, contractors are able to customize the platform to their specific needs. Featuring screed mounted control consoles that keep them relative to the operator at all times, the two-man configuration is ideal for smaller crews and height sensitive work zones. The three-man configuration, with its elevated platform, offers exceptional visibility while allowing operators to pivot the control stations a full 45 degrees outwards.
Carlson is taking the commercial-class screed to a higher level with the all-new EZCSS. Featuring a standard paving width of 20 cm to 38 cm, the EZCSS encompasses many of the Tacoma-based manufacturer’s leading features into its new commercial platform including exclusive two per cent taper and a single slide extension support system.
“Carlson screeds are known for their ability to be one of the only products in the industry that, when set to spec, deliver unmatched mat quality, uniform density and ride characteristics,” Travers said.
“The EZCSS is no different, a feature that truly elevates the quality of paving for commercial contractors.”
