The operator’s console on the 5000 Highway Paver offers easy access to machine and carriage function controls. The operator has access to machine travel speed, carriage travel speed, a manual override shift for automatic carriage reversing, internal concrete vibration system controls and power up and down legs, all standard on the 5000. Most accessories can also be controlled from the operator’s console including power leg widening, Hydra-Mation® stringline elevation sensing and the carriage/drag pan fogging system.
The 5000 paver isn’t just a heavy highway and road paver. It can be effectively used to pave airport aprons, runways and taxiways. Able to handle paving to depths of up to 30 in / 76.2 cm coupled with the ease of transport, setup, adjustment and the ability to pave oddly shaped slabs, the 5000 is a contender for any airport project. When adding a Terex Bid-Well Vertical Vibration System to the 5000 paver the result is unprecedented accuracy in profilograph testing and density in concrete core samples.
