Wirtgen’s SP 15i concrete slipform paver updates the existing SP 15 with Tier IV interim emissions technology, but both are true multipurpose machines that lay curb and gutter, barrier, sidewalk, V-ditch, special applications and slabs. Both of these versatile machines can be configured on site for left- or right-side pouring.

Like the SP 15, the SP 15i accepts AutoPilot technology from Wirtgen, a GPS-based system that ensures highest precision and optimum efficiency in slipform paving, regardless of whether straight profiles, highly complex curved paths or closed profile configurations need to be placed.

The SP 15i has a maximum paving width of 6 ft. (1.8 m), maximum barrier/parapet placement height of 4 ft. 3 in. (1.3 m), and a maximum operating weight of 28,500 lb. (12,927 kg). It has best-in-class trimming capacity, quick onsite changes for left or right side pouring, job site mobility, and pours a tight, smooth radius with all-track steering and positioning. The SP 15i also features an Eco mode, which matches engine rpm to machine power requirements, thus saving fuel and reducing emissions. It’s powered by a Deutz TCD 4.1 L4 engine generating 127 hp.

The SP 15i slipform paver sets new standards as a multipurpose machine for offset concrete paving. The compact machine has a heavy-duty design for tough day-to-day operation, increased maneuverability and ease of operation. It’s an ideal choice for pouring offset profiles and for sidewalk up to 6 ft.

The SP 15i owes its broad range of capabilities to the highly flexible arrangement of its mold and track units, as a great variety of setup options make the machine adaptable to most jobsite conditions.

Different-profile molds can be mounted on the left or right side of the paver without the need for time-consuming machine conversions. The two front track units can be chosen in pivot design, while the rear track unit can be chosen with mechanical or hydraulic adjustment to either side.

The flexibility of the SP 15i is enhanced by options such as trimmer, concrete feeding via belt conveyor or auger conveyor, and electric or hydraulic vibrators. The compact, overall dimensions of the SP 15i allow for easy transport.
