Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) has recently launched its new mid-sized P6820C ABG paver in India. Powered by Volvo’s D6E COM IIIA/EPA Tier 3 engine, the paver is considerably more powerful than its predecessor.
The P6820C is equipped with an emission-compliant engine. Fuel consumption is reduced further in smart power mode, which lowers engine RPM to match power and demand — resulting up to 30% fuel savings. Reduced noise levels can also be attributed to sound lowering components and a robust frame. These features combined with smart power can dramatically decrease noise levels, compared with the competition.
The new model P6820C paver is fitted with the Volvo Variomatic screed. It offers a high degree of flexibility of changing paving widths. It offers up to twice the basic screed width — from 2.5-5 m or from 3-6 m. The paver can handle a range of materials, from wearing course and binder course to base course and frost protection layers. The independent hydrostatic drives for both bar conveyors and augers in the paver ensure the paving material is delivered evenly to both sides of the screed.
The operator environment of the new P6820C paver is said to be ergonomically designed with an adjustable seat which provides the operator an all-around view. The operator has a direct view into the hopper, auger channel and the work area, which provide conditions for achieving high-quality paving. Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) said, the swivelling, tilting, extendable control panel features the newest Electronic Paver Management II system (EPM II), which controls all functions and guides the operator, step-by-step, through working functions.
