Shelly and Sands, Inc is putting to good use the latest in technology from The Wirtgen Group’s Vogele paver division in Mannheim, Germany with the purchase of 2 new Vogele Vision series pavers model 5200-02 rubber track pavers, one for the Columbus Division and one for the Akron Division.
They also decided to incorporate the latest in technology for the Columbus based machine with two Niveltronics Big Ski averaging systems. This system in built in house at Vogele and allows you to reference a bigger foot print for meeting the tougher IRI smoothness profilagraph requirements set today by ODOT. The Niveltronics system also comes standard with dual grade and slope controls already incorporated in the screed operator consoles.
Another important choice when choosing the Vogele Vision Series paver was the auto lube system that takes care daily of the feed and material handling system on board the machine.
Most important in making the buying decision was the support that they have received from The McLean Company and the co-involvement of Vogele’s service, engineering and management teams in handling all issues.
