Volvo’s ABG paver lays it on the mat


Volvo CE’s newest paver, the mid-sized P6820C ABG, is driving into the Indian market. This latest model offers a winning combination of power, production capacity, and precision for excellent paving quality, with perfectly smooth mats.


The new Volvo P6820C is powered by an emission-compliant D6E COM IIIA/EPA Tier 3 engine, making it more powerful with lower fuel consumption and less noise. Volvo CE says it will help majorly in India’s road building program. Commenting on their latest offering, Dimitrov Krishnan, Vice President & Head, Volvo CE India, says, “We are seeing more interest in equipment at the lower end of the scale as construction of smaller roads in more rural areas gathers pace. This reflects a maturing of the road network in India with many major routes now well into development, requiring work on the byways which will feed the arterial roads. The new mid-sized P6820C perfectly addresses this issue, offering an ideal combination of productivity and flexibility.”


In smart power mode the P6820C lowers engine RPM to match power and demand — resulting in fuel savings of up to 30 per cent, and the cabin has lower noise levels. 




The P6820C’s Variomatic screed makes it highly flexibility for changing paving widths, ranging from 2.5 to 5 or from 3 to 6 meters, and an extension can pave up to nine meter widths. Its fixed screed is effective when paving up to 700 tonnes per hour at 9 meters width. It can handle a range of materials, from wearing course and binder course, to base course and frost protection layers. Independent hydrostatic drives, for bar conveyors and augers ensures that material is spread evenly to both sides of the screed. This larger volume of material and high throughput provide optimum quality regardless of width, thickness or paving speed.




The ergonomic cabin has an adjustable seat allowing the operator an all-around view, and the swiveling, tilting, extendable control panel features the Electronic Paver Management II system (EPM II), which manages service intervals to alert the operator when routine maintenance is due. A settings manager reduces set-up times by allowing operators to save settings in the system for use when the machine operates in similar conditions in the future. Wide contact area crawler tracks combined with good weight distribution allow effective transfer of engine power to the ground. The rubber pad-clad crawler units are maintenance free and feature individual electronically controlled drives for each track. A system monitors track movement and controls motor response — ensuring both straight line and fixed radius work are accurate. Smooth and precise control of the electro-hydraulic steering is gained via an easy-to-use dial on the control panel.

The new paver also ensures improved access to service points, via large opening compartments for easy maintenance. An optional central lubrication system automates lube maintenance. A canopy that is quick and easy to fold down allows easy transport, too.

Volvo pavers are available with Care Kits, to guarantee longer life and better performance of wear parts, and customer service agreements (CSAs), which bundle service and maintenance offerings into comprehensive packages that cater to a variety of customer needs. As usual, the P6820C tracked paver is backed by Volvo CE’s extensive service network in India.
