The right paver or jobs in tight spaces
Compact size, high efficiency: be it extremely cramped job sites out of town or winding city-centre alleyways, the Vögele Compact Class pavers feature excellent manœuvrability. They are ideal in all these environments and trump with high performance.
The very small outside turning radius of only 3.8m makes for an extremely manœuvrable paver and permits easy and fast repositioning even on confined job sites.
The slim paver design without protruding edges and with a compact, overall length of just 4.95m allow for very easy paving and manœuvring on small job sites.
For passing through narrow spaces, push-rollers fold up together with the hopper sides.
The hardtop of glass fibre-reinforced polymer material, including exhaust pipe, folds down with effortless ease, thus preparing the paver for transport quickly and easily
Range of applications of the Vögele Compact Class
With their combination of compact dimensions and top performance, road pavers in the Vögele Compact Class can handle a wide variety of applications.
Whether it’s a combined footpath and cycle path, a farm track or minor roads and squares, Vögele Super 1303-3 is more than up to the task, thanks to its wide range of pave widths from 0.75m to 4.5m and its excellent performance.
The drive concept - Efficiency, performance and low consumption
Vögele’s modern drive concept guarantees full power whenever it is needed. Superior technology also makes this Compact Class paver exceedingly economical in everyday use thanks to the intelligent engine management with ECO mode. As a result, fuel consumption and the level of noise emitted by Super 1303-3 are significantly reduced.
With its high tractive power, Vögele Super 1303-3 perfectly combines high paving performance with maximum mobility when travelling.
Modern drive technology
Three main components define the power unit of Super 1303-3: its modern, liquid-cooled diesel engine, a splitter gearbox flanged directly to the engine and a large cooler assembly.
The driving force in this Vögele powerpack is its powerful diesel engine. The four-cylinder engine delivers 74.4kW at 2,000rpm. Yet the fuel-saving ECO mode is sufficient for many applications. And even then, Super 1303-3 still has a full 68.7kW at its disposal. Moreover, the machine generates less noise when running at just 1,600rpm.
A large cooler assembly ensures that the power unit always delivers its full output. With innovative air routing and a special fan, temperatures are continually maintained within the optimum range, significantly extending the service life of both the diesel engine and the hydraulic oil. A further advantage is that the machine can operate without difficulty in all climate regions worldwide.
All hydraulic consumers are directly supplied with hydraulic oil via the splitter gearbox. Hydraulic pumps and valves are centrally located, making them optimally accessible for servicing.
The large cooler assembly is made up of four parts. It ensures that engine coolant, charge air, fuel and hydraulic oil are maintained at the optimum temperature.
Powerful diesel engine rated at 74.4kW.
ECO mode (68.7kW at 1,600rpm) is sufficient for many paving applications. The engine‘s noise emissions, which are already low, are further decreased when working in ECO mode. In addition, ECO mode reduces fuel consumption and wear.
A powerful three-phase A.C. generator with generator management controls the output in compliance with the pave width. Heating the compacting systems to operating temperature takes a short time only.
For hydraulic functions, powerful separate drives are installed, which operate in independent closed loops. This solution allows engine output to be transformed highly efficiently into hydraulic paver performance.
Travels swiftly under its own power
|A powerful paver that‘s a comfortable drive on the road. The precise steering and handling characteristics make for the SUPER 1303-3‘s excellent manœuvrability, as demonstrated by its outside turning radius of just 4.9m (3.8m with Pivot Steer). With its powerful traction drive, the machine can pave swiftly and travel on public roads at a maximum speed of 20km/h. So if its next job site is close at hand, there is no need for a low-bed trailer to transport the paver|
Extreme manœuvrability thanks to Pivot Steer: the rear inside wheel is automatically slowed down hydraulically when Pivot Steer is activated. This minimizes the outside turning radius to no more than 3.8m for positioning manœuvres and paving. The function can be activated in “Pave” and “Positioning” modes, greatly increasing the manœuvrability of the machine on confined job sites.
Rapid transport under its own power at up to 20km/h - a feat Vögele Super 1303-3 is optimally equipped for. All paving functions are automatically deactivated when “Road Travel” mode is selected. In addition, the paver comes with the approved lighting for public traffic. As a result, this paver like all other wheeled pavers from Vögele meets the basic requirement for driving on public roads.
Maximum power transmission thanks to separate, hydraulic drives provided for the rear wheels and one set of front wheels. Optimum traction is assured, even on difficult terrain, by electronic traction management and an electronic differential lock acting on the drives of the rear wheels.
Continuous ground contact is assured by a front axle which oscillates both lengthwise and crosswise. In other words, the front axle is only firmly connected to the chassis at one point; in combination with the rigidly suspended rear wheels, this creates a static 3-point support
High-quality paving thanks to perfect material management
A continuous flow of mix is key to ensuring uninterrupted and high-quality paving. That is why we attach such importance to professional material management when designing our pavers.
All our development efforts focus on simple operation and the best possible overview for the paving team.
PaveDock Assistant from Vögele is an innovative solution for standardizing and simplifying communication between the paver operator and driver of the feed vehicle during the feed with mix.
Easy and clean feeding with mix
Despite the paver‘s slim profile, its material hopper holds 10t. The hydraulic hopper front supports both feeding of the paver with mix and emptying of the material hopper. The paver comes with oscillating push-rollers to ensure the shock-free docking of feed vehicles.
Hydraulically operated hopper sides, folding separately, guarantee consistent feeding with mix even when paving in asymmetrical widths along boundaries such as walls.
The large material hopper holding 10t is amply dimensioned so that a sufficient quantity of mix is stored at all times. There is no problem tiding over difficult situations such as paving under bridges, for instance.
Thanks to a hydraulically operated hopper front (option), no mix is spilled when feed lorries change. Inside the material hopper the mix is directed right onto the conveyors for complete emptying. No hand work with shovels is required. Oscillating push-rollers allow for convenient and shock-free docking even of large feed vehicles.
Proportional control provided for conveyors and augers
The conveyance and spreading of mix in front of the screed is optimal thanks to the large conveyor tunnel, proportional control of conveyors and powerful augers. Furthermore, augers adjustable in height and folding limiting plates for the auger tunnel allow the paver to be moved on the job site without a need for conversion. This saves time and money
The height of the augers is infinitely variable by 13cm for uniform spreading of mix across the entire pave width. Hydraulic auger height adjustment is available as an option.
The large conveyor tunnel and powerful separate hydraulic drives for conveyors and augers allow extraordinarily high laydown rates up to 250t/h, an extraordinarily high performance for a paver in its class.
Separate drive and control is installed for each conveyor and each auger. When operating in Automatic mode, conveyors and augers are subject to continual monitoring. Proportional control provides for a constant head of mix in front of the screed.
Folding limiting plates for the auger tunnel are provided to quickly set up the machine for paving within the range of 2.6m and 4.5m. There is no need for conversion
PaveDock Assistant: The communication system
A constant feed of material is a fundamental prerequisite for high-quality paving and perfect evenness.
PaveDock Assistant is the communication system between the paver operator and the driver of the feed vehicle. It allows particularly fast and reliable transfer of mix to the paver
The core element of the PaveDock Assistant are the signal lights on the paver and the associated control elements on the paver operator‘s ErgoPlus 3 console.
The paver has two sets of signal lights, mounted on the right and left of the hardtop. With these lights, the paver operator can give the driver of he feed vehicle unmistakable signals, indicating what needs to be done (e.g. reverse, stop, dump mix). Having two lights, each in an elevated position, ensures that all signals are clearly visible to the feed vehicle driver from all angles of approach.
AutoSet Basic: Repositioning function
AutoSet Basic is especially helpful when the machine frequently has to be moved on the job site.
Simply pressing the “Execute” button hydraulically raises the augers, the hopper front and the deflectors in front of the crawler tracks to the ppermost positions. The screed, too, is brought into its transport position. The conveyors are temporarily reversed, preventing mix from falling to the ground when the paver travels to the next work section on site.
Once the paver has been repositioned, pressing the “Execute” button again returns all systems to the previously stored working position.
This ensures that no settings are lost when changing from paving to repositioning or transport. It also effectively prevents any damage to the machine.
The ErgoPlus 3 operating concept
Even the very best machine with the most advanced technology can only really show its strengths if it can be operated easily and as intuitively as possible. At the same time, it should offer an ergonomic and safe working environment for the operating team. Therefore, the ErgoPlus 3 operating concept focuses on the operator. With VÖGELE pavers, the user consequently retains full control over the machine and construction project.
On the following pages example illustrations will provide you with more detailed information on the extensive functions of the ErgoPlus 3 operating concept. ErgoPlus 3 encompasses the operator’s stand, the paver operator’s console and screed consoles and Niveltronic Plus, the System for Automated Grade and Slope Control.
The paver operator‘s ErgoPlus 3 console
The paver operator‘s console is extremely clear and has been designed according to practical principles. All functions are combined into logical groups, so that the operator finds each function exactly where he would expect it to be.
On the ErgoPlus 3 console, all push-buttons are easily identifiable by touch even when wearing work gloves. Once a button is pressed, off you go thanks to the “Touch and Work” principle. This means that a function is executed directly without a need to confirm.
Lighting for travelling on public roads
As a standard feature, all Vögele wheeled pavers are equipped with a lighting system approved throughout Europe for travelling on public roads. The push-buttons for indicating direction, warning lights, dipped lights and full beam are clearly arranged side by side on the paver operator‘s console.
The no-load function is provided for the warm-up or cleaning of conveyors, augers and tamper.
AutoSet Basic Repositioning function (option)
With the AutoSet Basic Repositioning function, the paver is quickly and safely prepared for a move on the job site at the push of a button. After the move, all paver components are reset to their previous working positions, simply by pressing the button again. This ensures that no settings are lost when changing between “Pave” and “Job Site” modes. AutoSet Basic also effectively prevents damage during transport.
Choice of operating modes for the paver
All the main paving and machine functions can be controlled directly by individual push-buttons on the paver operator’s ErgoPlus 3 console. By pressing the arrow buttons, up or down, the operator changes modes in the following order: “Road Travel“, “Neutral“, “Job Site“, “Positioning“ and “Pave“. An LED indicates the mode selected. When leaving “Pave“ mode, a smart memory feature stores the last settings for paver functions so that, when resuming work after a relocation of the paver on the job site, these settings are retrieved automatically.
Safe operation during the night
Glarefree backlighting comes on automatically as darkness sets in so that the paver operator can also work safely on night-time jobs.
Display of the paver operator‘s console
The redesigned colour display has a high-contrast user interface ensuring brilliant readability even in poor lighting conditions. Vital information is shown on menu level 1, such as the pave speed and the material level in the conveyor tunnel. Further paver functions such as tamper and vibrator speeds or auger feed rates can easily be set up via the display, too. And the display gives access to machine-related information such as fuel consumption or service hours
Pavedock Assistant (option)
With the PaveDock Assistant signal lights, the paver operator can give the driver of the feed vehicle unmistakable signals, indicating what needs to be done (e.g. reverse, stop, dump mix). The lights are conveniently activated directly from the paver operator’s ErgoPlus 3 console.
Choice of engine speed ranges
For the engine, there is a choice of three modes to select from: MIN, ECO and MAX. To switch modes for engine rpm, all the operator needs to do is press the arrow buttons, up or down. In ECO mode, the engine delivers sufficient power for a great number of paving applications. Operating in ECO mode reduces noise emissions and fuel consumption considerably
Screed Assist (option)
This button switches Screed Assist on (LED lights up) or off. Screed Assist pressure and balance can be set via the display. Screed Assist is active only when the screed is floating.
The ErgoPlus 3 screed console
The screed is crucial for pavement quality. Therefore, easy and positive handling of all creed functions is of the utmost importance for high-quality road construction.
With ErgoPlus 3, the screed operator has the paving process at his fingertips. All functions are easily comprehensible and all controls are clearly arranged.
The screed console
The screed console is designed in keeping with the conditions prevailing on the job site. Push-buttons are provided for the frequently used functions operated from the screed console. These are watertight and enclosed in palpably raised rings, so that they are identifiable blindfold simply by touch even when wearing work gloves. Important paver and screed data can be called up and adjusted from the screed console, too.
The display of the screed console
The display of the screed console allows the screed operator to control and monitor both the left and the right side of the screed. Machine-related parameters such as tamper speed or conveyor speed can be adjusted conveniently via the display panel of the screed console. The clear menu structure, combined with easily understandable, self-explanatory symbols neutral in language, makes operating the display panel both simple and safe.
