30 • ROCK products • October 2018 Because the tanks are linked together via communicating pipework, they are filled simultaneously. Connection to a hydrant is also an option. Alternatively, water can be grav- ity-fed from above in the traditional way via one of the four filling spouts on the top. Replenishment of diesel and hydrau- lic fluid is also conveniently arranged: both can be carried out from ground level. Hamm offers two versions of the DV+ for North America: with ROPS roof or with fully glazed ROPS panoramic cab. In both cases, drivers of the DV+ can enjoy an excellent view of the drum edges at all times. This has been made possible through the innovative design of the platform or cab and of the water tanks. A special feature is the glass-viewing pane in the floor that allows an unobstructed view of the drums from above. On the models with ROPS cab, standard split doors ensure ample fresh air: the upper half can be rotated by 180 degrees, the lower by 85 degrees. When the door is closed, air is led through the window vents to the interior, and in winter, ven- tilation slots ensure speedy de-icing. All DV+ series models are equipped with state-of-the-art engines, satisfying requirements of Tier 4/Stage IIIB emis- sions requirements. The power pack filters the soot particles with a highly effective diesel particulate filter as part of the exhaust gas purification. This means that the rollers are equipped with future-proof technology that can be used even in the most strictly regulated markets, such as California. The new automatic engine stop system can also be incorpo- rated as an optional extra; it switches the engine off during extended periods of inactivity, saving fuel. Hamm, Vögele With the 10-ft. tracked Super 2000-3i and the wheeled Super 2003-3i pavers – the former shown earlier this year at the Wirtgen booth at World of Asphalt 2018 – Vögele has devel- oped two entirely new pavers for the North American market, designed primarily for use in highway construction and large- scale commercial applications. Both pavers come with the latest version of the Vögele oper- ating system, the ErgoPlus 3, which has been enhanced with a number of new ergonomic and functional features. With these new 10-ft. Highway Class pavers, Vögele also offers the right screed for every application. The Super 2000- 3i and the Super 2003-3i can be combined with the VF 600, a screed with front-mounted extensions, as well as the VR 600 and AB 600, two screeds with rear-mounted exten- sions. The AB 600 extending screed is equipped with both a vibration system and tamper, meaning it can achieve higher compaction. It's ideal for placing recycled materials as well as roller-compacted concrete (RCC). The driving force behind the two new Vögele Highway Class pavers is their powerful, six-cylinder Cummins diesel engine, rated at 250 hp (186 kW). Both low fuel consumption and low-noise operation are made possible by intelligent engine management with an ECO mode. Also shown at World of Asphalt 2018 was Vögele's 8-ft. wheeled paver, the Super 1703-3i. The 8-ft. paver segment is of central importance as these machines can cover a wide range of applications, from small municipal jobs to highway construction and rehabilitation. With their strong performance and a uniquely compact design, the Vögele Super 1700-3i tracked and Super 1703- 3i wheeled pavers put their owners at the forefront of Road-Building Products
