GOMACO is upgrading its G+ control system with the addition of new features being unveiled at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017. A key feature is that the G+ remote control offers hands-on machine control and can be used with any GOMACO three-track kerb and gutter machine currently equipped with the G+ operating system.
The lightweight remote control unit features a 109mm graphic display screen showing the machine’s run functions - information normally viewed at the operator’s console on top of the paver. Key paver functions are included on the remote and it also gives the operator individual control of each leg of the paver with automatic/manual adjustments for elevation and steering.
The unit allows the operator to stand either on the operator’s platform or close at hand, getting the best view of the working area. The G+ remote control provides hands-on safety at all times and has an emergency stop button as well as an alert horn. The remote control is powered by two lithium-ion batteries and a 12-volt charger, while an optional AC adaptor is also available.
