Bomag CR 1030 W Series pavers include significant upgrades to the operator’s platform, which improve visibility and the operator experience. New dual swing-out operator stations on the 10-ft. machines feature Bomag’s Sideview innovation in which the seat and console swivel outward at four differing angles to deliver unobstructed views to the sides of the paver and the screed end gates. An open-grate design on the platform floor affords the operator direct-line sight of the screed spreading augers.
The new 7-inch multifunction color screen display at each console provides easy viewing of critical operating functions, gauges, and parameters, plus provides fault messages for quick troubleshooting at the jobsite. New blade-type toggle switches, each controlling a single paver function, improve switch reliability.
The pavers’ new sound-insulated composite engine hood delivers quieter paving to improve operator comfort. The hood’s sloped design provides a clear view into the hopper from the operator’s seat. Under the hood, a 260-hp Tier 4 Final engine on the wheeled machine and a 225-hp on the tracked machine delivers ample power for full-width paving, while having enough power in reserve to operate the screed’s generator and lights for nighttime paving application. On typical applications, fuel consumption for the new highway-class pavers averages less than 4 gallons per hour.
Bomag has simplified its 10-ft (3.0-m) class paver offering, reducing the number of models from four to two. Legacy CR 452 and CR 552 wheeled pavers are now replaced by the CR 1030 W paver, while the rubber track CR 462 and CR 562 pavers now bear the CR 1030 T identification. These pavers tackle a range of applications from interstate and state highway to airport, heavy industrial, and large commercial projects.
