The new Volvo P6870C ABG wheeled paver with its Stage IIIB-certified engine and a new design is said to now be quieter, more productive, and be up to 30% more fuel efficient while reducing CO2 emissions.

A new fume extraction system, set to be available on the P6870C later in 2013 (and already available on Volvo’s tracked pavers), is said to remove bituminous fumes from the working environment at 83% efficiency without significantly increasing fuel consumption, noise or obstructing the operator’s view into the auger channel.

The paver, which has a basic paving width of 2.5m (maximum 9m) and a capacity of 700tonnes/hour is equipped with paving, shunting and transport drive modes. In paving mode, smart power mode is the default setting, and this is said to cut fuel consumption by as much as 30%. In shunting mode, paving functions are deactivated, and active steering is engaged for turning with a tight inner radius of 2.5m. In transport mode, full travel speed is initiated for quick relocation, and automatic idle occurs when the paver is not in motion.

A spacious, comfortable and ergonomically-designed operator environment gives the operator a commanding 360º view of the entire paving process.
The P6870C also features the electronic paver management II (EPM II) system, which guides the operator through working functions in addition to monitoring fuel consumption. The EPM II also features real-time onboard diagnostics notifications.

The P6870C ABG comes equipped with a fully independent, no-axle, six-wheel drive system, with the larger rear wheels delivering power, while the four front wheels provide assistance and steer with hydrostatic drive.

Volvo screeds are available with electric or gas heating.
