The RP-175e is a powerful, compact 8′ (2.5m) wide rubber-track asphalt paver designed to work in all types of sub-grades and paving applications. Full counter-rotate ability and track flotation allow the RP-175 to maneuver and pave in tight areas without sacrificing tractive effort or pushing power. Seats of the dual operator stations can move out beyond the sides of the machine to give the operator an excellent view down the sides of the machine.
Like all Roadtec pavers, the RP-175e features Roadtec’s exclusive anti-segregation design of the feed tunnel, the feed tunnel discharge, and the rear augers. The narrow shipping width of this paver allows quick and easy transportation between job locations.
All Roadtec pavers feature a 13” (330 mm) high conveyer opening for excellent throughput and have bolt-in wear resistant liners. Each conveyer is independently driven so material delivery can be fine tuned for each side. The space between the conveyers has been minimized which allows mix to be conveyed out as one uniform flow, greatly reducing segregation.
Delta Plate and Close Proximity of Augers to Conveyors
The delta plate defines the front wall of the material tunnel, preventing mix from rolling forward under the paver, a main cause of centerline segregation. It also removes mix from the conveyors providing better conveyor efficiency. The augers are kept very close to the discharge of the conveyors so that material is always kept live and moving and not just dumped on the ground.
Seats of the dual operator stations hydraulically move out beyond the sides of the machine to give the operator an excellent view down the sides of the machine, back to the screed and down to the material tunnel. On-the-fly movement allows the operator to be in the best position while paving but move in as they approach trees or other obstacles.
All Roadtec Asphalt Pavers start with an extremely strong frame completely fabricated, welded and assembled by us. This gives us complete control over the design and quality of the build.
All Roadtec Asphalt Pavers use Sauer Danfoss® hydraulic pumps for propel and material feed. These large easily serviced pumps allow the entire hydraulic circuit to run extremely cool greatly prolonging the life and lowering the maintenance costs of all components.
The auger assembly on Roadtec pavers can be hydraulically raised, lowered, or even tilted. This feature can assist in eliminating segregation in certain mixes and is very helpful during the loading and unloading process as well as constructing “supers”. Standard sonic feed sensors control each side of the feed system.
Roadtec tracked pavers have a fully oscillating track frame to provide a smooth ride and lay a smoother mat.
