The GOMACO Commander III with new roller frame for easy and accurate width changes.
A drawing illustrates the dual rollers on the GOMACO Commander III’s new roller frame. The rollers are mounted to the top and bottom of the outer frame tubes and reduce friction and drag as the frame telescopes up to six feet (1.83 m) wide.
Ida Grove, Iowa GOMACO Corporation’s versatile four-track Commander III has a new feature to aid contractors in ease of setup and operation. It features a new roller frame that provides easy and accurate width changes. The Commander III’s frame hydraulically telescopes on the left side up to six feet (1.83 m). The dual rollers, mounted to the top and bottom of the outer frame tubes, position the inner tube and reduce the amount of surface to surface contact area. This reduces friction and drag as the inner tube rolls when telescoping.
The new roller frame was originally developed for the Commander III with a V2 mold. The V2 is GOMACO’s dual mold system that is hydraulically adjustable for paving at different widths. The roller frame provides a fluid action as the V2 mold is making on-the-go width changes for tapered slabs.
The new roller frame is now standard on all GOMACO Commander III four-track machines. It can also be retrofit in the field on existing Commander IIIs.
The Commander III four-track is built for versatility. It can slipform concrete up to 20 feet (6 m) wide for primary and secondary roads, highways, city streets, ramps and approaches, parking lots, alleys, shoulders, golf cart paths, recreational trails and more.
