The Gomaco GP3 and GP4 slipform pavers are now available in two-track versions. The machines have been used on projects around the world since their introduction. The GP3 has the ability to slipform widths up to 9.1 m and the GP4 is for wider widths, up to 12.2 m.

The dual-telescoping GP3 and GP4 are part of Gomaco’s new family of pavers with next generation technology. Both the two-track and four-track versions of the machines feature the smart frame widening system to accommodate multiple width changes. The telescoping frame has dual telescoping capabilities of up to 2.13 m on each side of the paver, for a total of 4.26 m of automatic frame widening on the GP3 and GP4. 

Smart cylinders in the frame enable smart telescoping with accurate frame widening and automatic width reference for steering setup. The T-beam mounting rail is incorporated into the telescoping frame.

The pavers have been designed to be easy to operate with the G+ control system, as well as comfortable for the operator while offering a complete view of the paving operation. Vibrator modules are positioned across the front of the operator’s platform for easy accessibility and operation visibility. G+ delivers quiet running technology and also load-sensed hydraulics for maximum paving performance and optimised fuel efficiency.

In addition, the pavers are equipped with an isolated operator’s platform for operator comfort during a long day of slipform paving. This platform is easy to access with multi-positioning, pivoting ladders that allow variable degrees of angle for safety and ease in climbing. The ladders can also be vertically positioned tight against the paver for minimum-clearance paving conditions.

G+ Connect allows all the smart accessories and guidance system for the Gomaco paver to be easily interfaced. Simply ‘connect’ a 3D stringless guidance system, IDBI, tie bar inserter (TBI), power transition adjuster (PTA), Gomaco Smoothness Indicator (GSI) and more to a GP3 or GP4 slipform paver. They can also feature the latest in telematics and remote diagnostics.
