Hiway Stabilizers' new Volvo P8820 paver

Queensland-based Hiway Stabilizers delivers advanced stabilisation solutions for pavements and recently took delivery of the first P8820C ABG tracked paver in Australia from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE).

"The Volvo P8820C is the ideal tracked paver for Hiway Stabilizers because of its capacity to lay deep passes due to the dual tamping and vibrating screed with variable width of 3 m to 6m, Hiway Stabilizers General Manager North Paul Rhoden says.

The P8820C paver was delivered to Hiway Stabilizers team in Loganholme, Queensland, where it will be predominately used in the company’s mobile operations, travelling to meet customer’s needs. Once on site, the P8820C paver is typically used to lay foam bitumen, asphalt, sub-base and rail ballast.

The P8820C ABG can pave up to 13 meters and place around 1,100 tonnes per hour. Such high levels of throughput make these pavers suitable for a wide range of applications, from municipal roads and highways to waste storage areas. They also excel in paving a range of materials, from wearing course and binder course down to base course or even frost protection layers like CTB. The P8820C paver’s lift depth can go up to 300 mm, depending on the material used, while the screed can be hydraulically adjusted to ± 10% crown. Relevant paving information is easily available at operators’ fingertips thanks to Pave Assist powered by Volvo Co-Pilot. Pave Assist displays material management, weather view function and thermal mapping information via an on-board computer and display.

To facilitate clear communication when feeding material into the hopper, the paver is fitted with Smart Dock, which displays instructions to the driver to stop, go, slow, tip, lower or hold. A remote control also allows the operator or another crew member to convey the message, enabling a safer way to operate on construction sites.

Rhoden says another important factor in the company’s purchasing decision was the excellent aftermarket services from CJD Equipment.

"We previously purchased Volvo wheel loaders from CJD Equipment and trust the CJD team in Queensland with their servicing support," Rhoden says.

"As a leader in the industry, we need reliable partners and the most advanced machinery to stay ahead of the game. This is why we choose to work with the experienced team from CJD and quality machines from Volvo CE."
