The Terex Bid-Well 3600 paver offers a variety of standard paving widths ranging from 8 to 86 ft. (2.4 to 26.1 m). Its standard 18-ft. (5.5 m) end segments offer 15 ft. (4.6 m) of leg travel, so the paver can instantaneously offer up to 30-ft. (9.1 m) var
The Terex Bid-Well 3600 paver offers a variety of standard paving widths ranging from 8 to 86 ft. (2.4 to 26.1 m). Its standard 18-ft. (5.5 m) end segments offer 15 ft. (4.6 m) of leg travel, so the paver can instantaneously offer up to 30-ft. (9.1 m) variable width paving. The paver’s ability to tackle both standard duty slab-on-grade and bridge deck paving projects increases machine utilization, paving efficiency and return on investment.
The 3600 paver’s new paving carriage design features segmented upper and lower sections, similar to the larger 4800 paver design, allowing the upper carriage to stay cleaner than previous designs to improve carriage longevity. The heavy duty design positions the drag pan mounting system on the upper carriage to better withstand the weight and pull of dual drag-pan configurations, according to the manufacturer.
A new universal power crown adjuster for the 3600 paver makes quick and efficient crown adjustments, regardless of whether paving inline or at a skew. The updated arrangement enables the crown adjuster to be mounted inline or moved to an adjacent hinge point opposite of the other adjuster, giving operators the ability to quickly adjust the crown when paving at a skew.
The depth of machine adaptability to jobsite conditions can be seen in the different leg designs. Equipped with the swing leg design, the paver delivers zero clearance paving, often required when paving in tight applications such as rehabilitation work and bridge deck overlays. The optional, heavy-duty 6-in. (15.6 cm) diameter legs on display provide up to 47 in. (119.4 cm) of hydraulic raising/lowering to assist with machine grade set-up, saving manpower, time and money. When paving at cross slopes greater than 4 percent, the available pivot leg configuration brings the paver to a true vertical operating position, reducing side forces placed on the rail system and eliminating the need for and expense of additional shoring.
The recently introduced LED lighting system increases machine visibility during nighttime paving and decreases the harsh shadows thrown by tower lights, allowing finishers to deliver a quality final product. The integrated lighting system is powered directly by the machine’s engines, eliminating the need for a generator. Requiring only 1 amp of energy per light, up to 12 LED lights can be positioned virtually anywhere on the machine’s frame and up to 4 LED lights can be mounted directly to the paving carriage to illuminate the paver.
