Vögele is restructuring its range of road pavers and screeds.
The Wirtgen Group plans to divide its range into two lines: the Premium Line and the Classic Line. The company will also subdivide its products into five classes within those lines.
The new Classic Line is for pavers equipped with the easy-to-use ErgoBasic operating concept. These machines include a solid machine concept, which offers a basic range of convenient features. The Classic Line machines offer all the essential features required for daily paving work. All the machines are equipped with engines and screeds that match the national requirements of their respective target markets.
Vögele pavers that feature cutting-edge technology and advanced mechanical engineering will be sold in the company’s Premium Line. These machines are all equipped with the ErgoPlus 3 operating concept. The system offers a number of additional features not included in ErgoBasic.
Many of the pavers’ functions may be configured via a high-contrast display which can be operated intuitively. The display also provides the operator with extensive information.
The automatic programs of Vögele’s AutoSet Plus are also operated via the display of the ErgoPlus 3 console. If a customer has opted to use the RoadScan temperature-measurement system, the paver operator is able to monitor the temperature of the asphalt being paved on the display.

Customers who are also using the WITOS Paving process-management solution, may receive real-time information on the construction project on the display of their Premium Line machines, increasing paving quality.
Covering the automatic functions of AutoSet Plus, the PaveDock Assistant communication system and the Vögele EcoPlus low-emissions package, Vögele’s Premium Line offers all the functionality of the latest “Dash 3” generation.
Vögele’s Premium and Classic Lines are further divided into up to five different classes: the Mini Class, Compact Class, Universal Class, Highway Class and Special Class.
The current total of 48 machines and 26 screed versions offered by Vögele are allocated to one of the lines based on their operating concept and equipment, as well as to one of the classes depending on their pave width, performance and areas of application.
