The GOMACO PS-2600 placer/spreader places concrete over continuous steel reinforcing on a toll road in Texas.

 

 

 

The GOMACO PS-2600 has a minimum transport width of 12 feet (3.66 m) and a transport height of 9.75 feet (2.97 m) without the strike-off mold. The PS-2600 also has a minimum transport length of 19 feet (5.97 m) with the 12 foot (3.66 m) strike-off mold attached.

 

 

 

The GOMACO PS-2600 and GHP-2800 make up the paving train on this airport. This runway is being paved 25 feet (7.62 m) wide.

 

 

 

The retaining wheel mounted on the conveyor provides stabilization of the belt while raising and lowering the hinged belt frame.

 

 

 

The conveyor deflector directs the flow of concrete at the discharge end of the conveyor.

 

 

 

Quick and accurate spreading of the concrete is accomplished with the reversible, 20 inch (508 mm) diameter, hydraulically powered, split auger.

 

 

 

A new 8000 foot (2438 m) southern runway on the Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was slipformed with a GOMACO PS-2600 placer/spreader, GHP-2800 paver with Leica Geosystems 3D stringless guidance, and T/C-600 texture/cure machine.
