The G&Z S600 Slipform Paver is designed around a multi-purpose tractor frame that makes it ideal for city street, secondary roads, highway and airport paving as well as a wide range of other applications such as barrier walls, off-set paving and zero or minimum clearance paving. The S600 Slipform Paver's design has redefined what mobility means for a small paver without sacrificing the same performance advantages contractors have come to expect from G&Z's large and mid-size slipform pavers. Utilizing G&Z's time tested and rugged paving kit design, the S600 is capable of achieving excellent ride numbers on the toughest IRI and zero blanking band projects.
The S600 features a double telescopic tractor frame, access walkway, and hose hinge system for a nominal working range of 8' to 22' (2.44 m to 6.71 m) the widest range in the industry. With the use of bolt-in tractor frame extensions, the S600 tractor can be used to pave out to 29'-5" (9 m) without a Dowel Bar Inserter (DBI)*. The versatility of the S600 tractor allows the contractor to quickly switch between applications and paving widths. The tractor components including center module, bolsters, and jacking columns are designed with universal bolting patterns offering a wide range of three and four track tractor configurations with or without swing legs. The S600 Slipform Paver is the narrowest profile machine on the market. In standard paving mode, there is less than 2' (610 mm) from edge of pavement to widest point on the paver with sensor support arms removed. The paving kit, front tie bar inserters and many of the other optional attachments on the S600 are interchangeable with other G&Z slipform paver models, giving the contractor a highly utilized fleet of paving equipment.
