The transverse-mounted engine provides better cooling performance and greater accessibility for service.Meets EPA/CARB
Meets EPA/CARB low emissions engine regulations.Low Sound Emission
Low sound emission complies with major regulatory rules.Adjustment-free Direct Injection Fuel System
The adjustment-free direct injection fuel system keeps fuel consumption low.Intake Manifold Heater
The intake manifold heater preheats incoming air for quick cold-weather starting.
Hydrostatic Drive System
The efficient hydraulic drive system eliminates chains and other mechanical linkages between the diesel engine and final drive components.
Closed-loop Hydrostatic Propel System
The closed-loop hydrostatic propel system provides efficient, low-maintenance operation.Speed Control System
The speed control system maintains preset paving speeds throughout a job.Propulsion Controller
The propulsion controller provides accurate control of steering and propulsion systems, assuring straight-line tracking.Decel Pedal
The decel pedal provides foot control of the propel speed, freeing the operator to manage other paving functions.Dual Path Steering System
The dual path steering system utilizes a steering wheel for simplified operation
Single operator's station is designed for comfort and optimum efficiency.
Operator's Station Slides from Side to Side
The single operator's station slides from side to side and includes fully equipped instrument console and steering wheel with lockable cover.Operator's Platform
The operator's platform can be positioned 305 mm (12") beyond each side of the paver for greater operator visibility.Operator's Seat
The operator's seat pivots 152 mm (6") to the left or right to further improve operator visibility.Low-mounted Engine
Low-mounted engine provides unobstructed forward visibility.
The control console on the BG-255C has a full instrumentation package that keeps the operator informed of all major systems status.
Symbols and Functional Word Descriptions
Symbols and functional word descriptions are shown for all controls.Gauges are Analog Type
Gauges are analog type for quick interpretation.Warning Lights Illuminate and Horn
Warning lights illuminate and horn alert operator to: 1) high hydraulic oil temperature; 2) low hydraulic oil level; 3) low engine oil pressure; or 4) high engine coolant temperature.Speed Control System
Speed control system allows the operator to dial a maximum paving speed. Once set, the paver returns to the preset speed when propel lever is in full forward position.
Feeder/Auger Control System
The exclusive feeder/auger control system provides precise mix delivery through the most advanced material handling system.
Left and Right Feeders and Left and Right Augers
Left and right feeders and left and right augers are all controlled independently, eliminating the need for feeder gates.Feeder Speeds
Once the feeder speeds are set, the ratio of feeder speed to the maximum auger speed is automatically maintained by the material handling controller, regardless of propel rate or paving widths.Controlling Mix Delivery
To control mix delivery, the operator sets a speed rate for each feeder that will maintain the desired mix level i the left and right auger chambers.Component Wear
Component wear is reduced because full feeders run a slower speeds.Potential for Mix Segregation is Minimized
The potential for mix segregation is minimized because head of material remains constant.
Slower running feeders reduce wear and segregation.
Gateless Feeders Always Run Full
Gateless feeders always run full of mix regardless of the speed required to fill the auger chamber.Drag Pans
Drag pans are constructed with abrasion resistant, heat treated steel.Feeder Flight Bars
Feeder flight bars are forged steel and pinned to two strands of roller bushed chain.Changes in Feeder Speed
When changes in feeder speed are needed, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate.Potential for Segregation Reduced
Potential for segregation is reduced with slower running feeders, especially when working with large stone mixes.
Adjustable Height Auger Assembly
Adjustable height auger assembly promotes mat consistency and minimizes segregation.
The auger assembly can be hydraulically adjusted to 171 mm (6.75").Working with Larger Stone Mixes
When working with larger stone mixes, segregation can often be eliminated or minimized by raising the augers to allow mix to flow unrestricted under the auger assembly.Simplifies Loading and Unloading
The ability to raise the auger assembly simplifies loading and unloading from a transport vehicle.
Feeder Design Improves Mix Flow
Tunnel construction helps minimize segregation.
Distance Between Two Feeders Significantly Reduced
The distance between the two feeders is significantly reduced because the auger drive assembly is not part of the tractor.Narrow Distance Between Feeders Minimizes Segregation
The narrow distance between feeders allows flow from both feeders to blend together easily as they discharge into the auger cavity. This design helps minimize segregation.Auger Case
The narrow distance between feeders allows flow from both feeders to blend together easily as they discharge into the auger cavity. This design helps minimize segregation.
The BG-225C track system delivers superior ride quality.
Computer Determined Track Roller Placement
The computer determined track roller placement and special triple roller rear bogies achieve a smoother ride.Cat D3 Track Rails
Cat D3 track rails include sealed tracks with split master link for dependable, low maintenance performance.Automatic Track Tension System
The automatic track tension system provides low maintenance and few adjustments.Increased Tractive Effort
Increased tractive effort with standard rubber track pads. Two-bolt attachment system for easy pad replacement.
Simplified service means more paving and less maintenance time.
