GOMACO is making its successful Commander III even more versatile
GOMACO says that its updated Commander III slipformer now offers increased performance
Gomaco says that a series of improvements to the Commander III slipform paver help increase its versatility and overall performance. The machine will be on the market in the third quarter of this year and the tree track machine’s key improvements include the new G+ control system and the latest low emission, Tier 4 engines. Other upgrades include a redesigned frame and operator’s platform with a new pivoting control console that offers a better view of the working area. Operator comfort has been improved through the installation of vibration damping to the platform while the new engine and cooling system is also quieter than before. Fuel efficiency has been increased due to the new engine and also due to the load-sensing hydraulics.
The firm redesigned the frame to accommodate Tier 4 engines and their cooling packages. The engine installation has been reversed so as to improve operator visibility while the new engine cover gives better access to service and fill points. Another new feature is an optional on-board camera that can be located anywhere on the machine and provide the operator with a view of a working function on the display of the G+ system. The machine has the new GBox on every leg, which improves control of the steering and grade through the G+ system.
