Intake manifold heater preheats incoming air for quick cold weather starting.Meets EPA/CARB
Meets EPA/CARB emissions engine regulations.
Hydrostatic Drive System
The efficient hydraulic drive system eliminates chains and other mechanical linkages between diesel engine and final drive components.
Closed-loop Hydrostatic Propel System
Closed-loop hydrostatic propel system provides efficient, low-maintenance operation.Speed Control System
Speed control system maintains preset paving speeds throughout a job.Propulsion Controller
Propulsion controller provides accurate control of steering and propulsion systems.Decel Pedal
Decel pedal provides foot control of propel speed freeing operator to control other paving functions.Dual Path Steering System
Dual path steering system utilizes steering wheel for simplified operation.
The single operator's station is designed for comfort and optimum efficiency.
Single 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.Dual-slide Feature
Dual-slide feature allows the seat to be slid from side to side and front to back on the pedestal frame, enhancing visibility.Operator's Seat
The operator's seat pivots 152 mm (6") to the left or right to further enhance operator visibility.Low-mounted Engine
The low-mounted engine provides unobstructed forward visibility.
Full instrumentation package keeps operator informed of all major systems status.
International Symbols and Functional Word Descriptions
International symbols and functional word descriptions are shown for all controls.Gauges
Gauges are analog type for quick interpretation.Warning Lights 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.Electrical Wiring
Electrical wiring is protected by an articulated vinyl enclosure.Speed Control
Speed control 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.
Exclusive Feeder/Auger Control System
The exclusive feeder/auger control system provides precise mix delivery through the most advanced material handling system.
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.Changes in Feeder Speed
When changes in feeder speed are needed, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate.Drag Pans
Drag pans are constructed with abrasion resistant, heat treated steal.Feeder Flight Bars
Feeder flight bars are forged steel and pinned to two strands of roller bushed chain.Potential for Segregation Reduced
Potential for segregation is reduced with slower running feeders, especially when working with large stone mixes.
Adjustable Height Auger Assembly
The adjustable height auger assembly promotes mat consistency and minimizes segregation.
The auger assembly can be hydraulically adjusted 171 mm (6.75").Working with Larger Stone Mixes
When working with larger stone mixes, segregation can often be eliminated for minimized by raising the augers to allow mix to flow unrestricted under the auger assembly.Raising the Auger Assembly
The ability to raise the auger assembly simplifies loading and unloading from a transport vehicle.Dual Lift Cylinders
Dual lift cylinders provide a stable position for the augers, enhancing mat quality.
Feeder Design Improves Mix Flow
Tunnel construction helps minimize segregation.
Distance Between Feeders is 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
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 is not Attached
Since the auger case is not attached to the tractor, voids under the chain case are eliminated.
The track system of the BG-245C is designed for superior ride quality.
Computer Determined Track Roller Placement
The computer determined track roller placement and special quad roller rear bogies achieve a smoother ride.Cat 3D Track Rails
The Cat D3 track rails include sealed tracks with split master link for a dependable, low maintenance performance.Track Tension System
The automatic track tensioning system provides for lower maintenance, fewer 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.
