Atlas Copco introduces Dynapac F800T paver
Atlas Copco introduces its new Dynapac 8-foot tracked paver, the F800T, which has been designed specifically for North American customers and meets Tier 4 Final emission regulations. Innovative features include a patented safe-impact push-roller system, chamfered hoppers, dual-bar feed conveyors, and the world’s thinnest auger chain box to ensure a smooth and continuous flow of material for best mat quality.
The paver’s independently controlled, dual-bar feed conveyor system with 17-inch-diameter auger flights ensures continuous flow of material. The auger flights are attached to the world’s thinnest center chain box at just 6 inches wide, eliminating centerline segregation.
Both auger and conveyor speed control are achieved through an integrated feed control system using four ultrasonic sensors. The integrated hydraulic tunnel option eliminates material spillage toward the track and provides optimum material head.
The F800T tracked paver’s six-cylinder, 173 hp Cummins QSB 6.7 Tier 4 Final engine provides ample power, and the ECO mode setting further reduces fuel consumption during paving operations.
An efficient cross-flow cooling system with a hydraulically-driven, temperature-dependent variable speed fan significantly reduces the noise level. The bypass valve on the hydraulic oil cooler quickly brings the machine temperature to operating parameters, reducing idle time in cold working conditions.
The F800T is equipped with a high-performance frictional undercarriage system. The paver is supported by three oversized wheel sets (four wheels per set). The oscillating bogie wheels allow the paver to run on uneven surfaces without affecting mat quality.
The F800 series pavers are equipped with a Carlson EZIV08-15 front-mounted electrical screed. Controls for the screed operator are fitted with simplified toggle switches. The load-sensing hydraulic system consumes less power and provides a faster response to varying widths and slope changes. Power for screed electrical heating is provided by a tractor-mounted 34 kV hydraulically-driven generator, which maintains a frequency control at 60 Hz regardless of the load or speed of the engine.
The F800 series is designed for maximum uptime with simplified service concepts. Centralized filters and other maintenance items reduce scheduled service downtime.
The hydraulic system is fitted with redundant circuits and manual overrides to keep the paver up and running all the time.
