Together Stephenson Equipment and LeeBoy are putting together the first ever "Stars & Stripes" version of LeeBoy's 8520B asphalt paver in support of The Gary Sinise Foundation.

With the addition of two new models, Wirtgen is equipping its slipform pavers in the 40 ft. (12 m) class with proven technologies from the SP 60i and SP 90i series. Inset slipform pavers are an ideal choice for the cost-effective paving of large-scale concrete pavements, such as highly durable highways or aircraft runways.

When road surfaces and paths are paved over preplaced reinforcing steel, the concrete can often only be supplied from the side. Wirtgen's WPS 62i/WPS 62 placer/spreader is a practical choice for this application. As the first machine in the Wirtgen paving train, it travels over the reinforcement in front of the slipform paver and texture curing machine.
