Vögele Tracked Super 1300-2 Debuts

The Super 1300-2 paver is driven by a modern Deutz engine rated 100 hp (74.5 kW) at 2,000 rpm and achieves a maximum laydown rate of 390 tons (354 t) per hour.

The new Super 1300-2 track paver from Vögele America Inc. was introduced to North America at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2011 in Las Vegas.

The Super 1300-2 paver — like the same-sized wheeled Super 1303-2 — is a highly versatile paver of the compact equipment class which, due to its small size, can handle a wide range of the most varied paving tasks, including combined footpaths and bike paths, residential streets and parking lot applications, according to the manufacturer.

The paver is driven by a modern Deutz engine rated 100 hp (74.5 kW) at 2,000 rpm and achieves a maximum laydown rate of 390 tons (354 t) per hour.

The paver combines with an AB 340 extending screed in its V version.

Like all machines in Vögele’s dash 2 generation, the ErgoPlus control system lends greater safety to the job site, and higher quality to the paved product. With ErgoPlus, handling the paver is simple and intuitive, according to the manufacturer.

No component on the Super 1300-2 protrudes beyond its slim silhouette. With the hopper sides folded up, its basic transport width comes to no more than 6 ft., (1.8 m) this in conjunction with a length of just 6 ft. As a result, it can be driven nearly anywhere and fit through almost any gap. Yet it can still pave up to a width of 16.4 ft. (5 m).

To save fuel, its ECO Mode (86 hp at 1,800 rpm) is sufficient for most paving applications. The engine’s noise emission is further decreased when working in ECO Mode. In addition, ECO Mode reduces fuel consumption and wear.

Its powerful three-phase A.C. generator is managed to control generator output in compliance with the pave width. Heating the screed to operating temperature takes just a short time.

The large cooler assembly provides for optimum cooling, even when operating at full load, thus increasing the service life of the paver systems, according to the manufacturer.

For hydraulic functions, powerful separate drives are installed operating in closed circuits. This solution allows engine output to be transformed into hydraulic paver performance.
