Hydrostatic Drive System
The efficient hydraulic drive system eliminates chains and other mechanical linkages between diesel engine and final drive components.
Closed-loop Hydrostatic Propel SystemClosed-loop hydrostatic propel system provides efficient, low-maintenance operation.
Speed Control SystemSpeed control system maintains preset paving speeds throughout a job.
Propulsion ControllerPropulsion controller provides accurate control of steering and propulsion systems.
Decel PedalDecel pedal provides foot control of propel speed freeing operator to control other paving functions.
Dual Path Steering SystemDual path steering system utilizes steering wheel for simplified operation.
The single operator's station is designed for comfort and optimum efficiency.
Single Operator's Station Slides from Side to SideThe single operator's station slides from side to side and includes fully equipped instrument console and steering wheel with lockable cover.
Dual-slide FeatureDual-slide feature allows the seat to be slid from side to side and front to back on the pedestal frame, enhancing visibility.
Operator's SeatThe operator's seat pivots 152 mm (6") to the left or right to further enhance operator visibility.
Low-mounted EngineThe low-mounted engine provides unobstructed forward visibility.
Full instrumentation package keeps operator informed of all major systems status.
International Symbols and Functional Word DescriptionsInternational symbols and functional word descriptions are shown for all controls.
GaugesGauges are analog type for quick interpretation.
Warning Lights and HornWarning lights illuminate and horn alert operator to: 1) high hydraulic oil temperature; 2) low hydraulic oil level; 3) low engine oil pressure; or 4) high engine coolant temperature.
Electrical WiringElectrical wiring is protected by an articulated vinyl enclosure.
Speed ControlSpeed control allows the operator to dial a maximum paving speed. Once set, the paver returns to the preset speed when propel lever is in full forward position.
Exclusive Feeder/Auger Control SystemThe exclusive feeder/auger control system provides precise mix delivery through the most advanced material handling system.
Slower running feeders reduce wear and segregation.
Gateless Feeders Always Run FullGateless feeders always run full of mix regardless of the speed required to fill the auger chamber.
Changes in Feeder SpeedWhen changes in feeder speed are needed, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate.
Drag PansDrag pans are constructed with abrasion resistant, heat treated steal.
Feeder Flight BarsFeeder flight bars are forged steel and pinned to two strands of roller bushed chain.
Potential for Segregation ReducedPotential for segregation is reduced with slower running feeders, especially when working with large stone mixes.
Adjustable Height Auger Assembly
The adjustable height auger assembly promotes mat consistency and minimizes segregation.
Hydraulically AdjustedThe auger assembly can be hydraulically adjusted 171 mm (6.75").
Working with Larger Stone MixesWhen working with larger stone mixes, segregation can often be eliminated for minimized by raising the augers to allow mix to flow unrestricted under the auger assembly.
Raising the Auger AssemblyThe ability to raise the auger assembly simplifies loading and unloading from a transport vehicle.
Dual Lift CylindersDual lift cylinders provide a stable position for the augers, enhancing mat quality.
Feeder Design Improves Mix Flow
Tunnel construction helps minimize segregation.
Distance Between Feeders is ReducedThe distance between the two feeders is significantly reduced because the auger drive assembly is not part of the tractor.
Narrow Distance Between FeedersThe narrow distance between feeders allows flow from both feeders to blend together easily as they discharge into the auger cavity. This design helps minimize segregation.
Auger Case is not AttachedSince the auger case is not attached to the tractor, voids under the chain case are eliminated.
The track system of the BG-245C is designed for superior ride quality.
Computer Determined Track Roller PlacementThe computer determined track roller placement and special quad roller rear bogies achieve a smoother ride.
Cat 3D Track RailsThe Cat D3 track rails include sealed tracks with split master link for a dependable, low maintenance performance.
Track Tension SystemThe automatic track tensioning system provides for lower maintenance, fewer adjustments.
Increased Tractive EffortIncreased tractive effort with standard rubber track pads. Two bolt attachment system for easy pad replacement.
Simplified service means more paving and less maintenance time.
Doors and PanelsLarge swing-open doors and panels provide access to all service areas.
Transverse Engine MountingTransverse engine mounting provides ground-level access to hydraulic pumps and engine cooling system.
Wiring SystemColor coded and numbered wiring system simplifies troubleshooting electrical systems.
Lubrication FittingsLubrication fittings are clustered for quick service.
Propulsion and Material ControllersPropulsion and material controllers provide diagnostic capability for trouble shooting hydraulic and electrical systems.
