The Gomaco Xtreme line of concrete curb and gutter machines feature Xtreme steering capabilities with rotary-sensored slew drives on each track, Xtreme intelligence with smart hydraulic cylinders combined with G+ control, Xtreme hydraulic packages with independent hydraulic travel circuits to each track with G+ control on each individual track’s speed and smooth travel around radii, and Xtreme radius capabilities when paving with 3D guidance or stringline.
The Gomaco 3300 is a multi-application paver with a symmetrical design for right-side and left-side paving. It can also be equipped with a mould mounting kit to undermount a paving mould and be utilised as a transverse slipform paver. The 3300 will be displayed with a 3.7-m-wide undermounted transverse paving mould.
The Gomaco G+ control system is the magic behind the 3300’s transverse paving ability. The operator simply uses G+ controls to turn the 3300’s tracks 90 degrees into the transverse position and transverse paving configuration. In this configuration, the 3300 is capable of paving entrance/exit ramps, sidewalk/walking trails, dolly pads, polymer overlays, and more. When flat paving applications are complete, the contractor can drop the paving mould, press the button on the G+ digital control screen to put the 3300 into curb and gutter mode, and it becomes a fully functional curb and gutter machine capable of slipforming a large variety of applications including tight radii.
Xtreme GT-3600 and Commander IIIx
Other Xtreme curb and gutter machines in the Gomaco booth capable of slipforming tight radii are the Xtreme GT-3600 and Commander IIIx. They are also suitable for barrier, parapet, sidewalk, recreational path, small canal, water channel, and so on. And both can slipform a 610 mm radius.
Rotary-sensored slew drives and smart hydraulic cylinders allow the G+ control system to know the position of all three tracks of the curb and gutter machines to make as needed steering adjustments. Independent hydraulic travel circuits to each track allow G+ to control each track’s speed through the radius.
Both machines also feature the Gomaco three-sensor radius system when paving on stringline. The radius system allows the lead steering wand to leave the stringline and switch reference to the second sensor for travelling around the tight radius. The Xtreme turning capabilities also make them the ideal machines for navigating around jobsite obstacles, getting on and off stringline and paving passes, and loading and unloading the machine for transport.
Rounding out Gomaco’s curb and gutter machine line up will be the compact GT-3200 paver. The curb and gutter machines on display will feature the different stringline and stringless paving options from Topcon, Leica Geosystems and Trimble. Gomaco equipment has been paving with 3D systems for over 20 years and is able to seamlessly integrate with the three major suppliers of stringless systems.
