Volvo’s P5110B and P5170B Asphalt Pavers
Volvo Construction Equipment will debut two new asphalt paver models for its North American line-up at the festival grounds in Vegas—the P5110B tracked and P5170B wheeled eight-foot pavers. They are built for heavy commercial and light highway tasks.
“The P5110B and P5170B give contractors a new heavy eight-foot size class option, meeting demand for mid-size pavers that fall between our existing P4410B and 7000B series models,” said Bill Laing, product manager, road products at Volvo CE. “We also integrated adaptive Volvo engine speed technology into the 5000 series to give high productivity at a very low 1200 rpm. This results in lower operating costs day in, day out.”
The 5000B series is powered by the latest Volvo D6 Tier 4 Final engine.
The P5110B and P5170B pavers are fitted with a large capacity hopper to ensure continuous paving, while rolled wings help prevent material build-up and cut cleaning time. Once loaded, four sonic sensors regulate the flow and delivery of material. The P5170B also has the option of front wheel assist for added traction and grade-ability.
Both models come with an UltiMat160 screed, which features extensions that can adjust paving width hydraulically from eight feet up to 16 feet. The screed’s front-mounted extension supports head-of-material control in the auger channel. The screed’s optional bolt-on extensions provide paving up to 18 feet wide.
These models also have ground-level access to common service areas, filters, hydraulic test ports and fuel/DEF tanks. Greaseless bearings in the auger and conveyor and wear parts in the hopper that are easy to access and replace also make servicing these machines easy, according to the manufacturer. Both are backed by the Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the tractor frame on both machines and the track frame on the P5110B for the entirety of the initial period of ownership. They also come with one year of ActiveCare Direct®, Volvo’s advanced telematics service that provides 24/7/365 active machine monitoring and fleet utilization reporting.
Volvo also announced it’s bringing back its popular Million Ton Guarantee, a North American after-purchase program that gives customers of Volvo 7000 Series asphalt pavers manufacturer support for the replacement of auger and conveyor system wear parts over a five-year period. There’s more information on the AsphaltPro.com site about that.
