Barr is using the machine on the A75 Hardgrove upgrade project laying 10,000m3 of cement bound granular mixtures (CBGM).
The paver was bought especially for this contract and to take the company into the CBGM and roller compacted concrete (RCC) markets. The SD2550C , coupled with a new 120s Rapidmix concrete plant, enables Barr to work in both of these markets.
Features of the SD2550C tracked paver include a safe impact system, integrated levelling, a sliding cabin deck and an energy-saving motor.
In addition to the large tracked paver, Barr also purchased two CC1200 tandem asphalt rollers. These are designed to be suitable for use in urban areas, with low noise, good visibility, easy operation, simple servicing and a 1200mm drum width.
Barr director Colin Morrow said: “The paver is performing well and producing a product to an excellent tolerance.”
He added: “We chose the Dynapac paver as it offers good value for money while offering all the essentials required to lay both coated and composite payments. We chose the tracked paver over the wheeled version for its ability to lay composite payments to greater depths and widths. Dynapac have provided strong service and an ability to respond quickly to our needs.”
Dynapac has been part of the Atlas Copco group since 2007 but Dynapac remains as the product name.
