New Paving Machines
Arkil has recently added two new state of the art Vogele Super 1803-3i paving machines to our Kildare and Cork Contracting paving divisions. The SUPER 1803-3i is the most powerful wheeled paver in the range of VÖGELE products. At a high level of perfection, it combines features such as sturdy and reliable material handling, large pave widths up to 8m, excellent mobility and easy transfer under its own power. This will further enable Arkil to meet the demands of our customers throughout the country as well as ensuring a top quality finish to our asphalt materials.
The benefits of these new paving machines are as follows:
- Due to perfect spreading of mix, the SUPER 1803-3i provides for an optimal head of material in front of the screed in every paving situation. Powerful, separate hydraulic drives for conveyors and augers are installed achieving laydown rates up to 700 tonnes/h.
- Proportional control and continuous monitoring provided for conveyors and augers guarantee a constant head of mix in front of the screed in conformity with the requirement.
- The height of the auger, complete with bearing boxes and limiting plates for the auger tunnel, is hydraulically and infinitely variable by up to 15cm across the entire pave width. This results in optimal spreading of mix in front of the screed, even when paving thin layers or when the layer thickness varies.
- Large diameter of auger blades (400mm) for excellent spreading of mix when paving in large widths.
Arkil have also purchased a Bitelli BB650 paver to add to their growing plant fleet. This machine is perfect for awkward to reach jobs around house fronts , driveways and schoolyards . Its lightweight chassis makes it easy to manoeuvre and transport. Bitelli paving machines are recognised in the asphalt industry as being a reliable and consistent paving machine.
