Electronics in harsh environments can be an issue in some cases, but not with the F1000 series pavers. The sealed wiring harness in the sealed fuse box is designed for easy service in a clean enclosure. The logic relays feature an LED power indicator, latching indicator and mechanical override for fast trouble shooting and quick replacement. The Sauer cartridge valves have a manual override, and the drive system is easily disengaged with a simple manual conveyor tension to move the paver in the event of a major failure.
"We call it 'Uptime from Design,'" said Bruce Truesdale, President, Dynapac USA. "Everything on this paver has been designed to help contractors improve productivity, reliability, operator comfort and safety and reduce total cost of ownership."
