SUPER 800i in detail

The Mini Class paver with the maximum range of applications

The SUPER 800i is an extremely compact small paver that can tackle a wide variety of applications. Whether working on narrow farm tracks, close to walls and edges, between tram lines or in buildings, it is in confined spaces that the SUPER 800i really shows what it‘s capable of.

When it comes to technology, the SUPER 800i can certainly keep pace with the large ”Dash 3“ pavers.

The powerful material conveying system is sophisticated, as is the new ErgoBasic operating concept. Equipped with the AB 220 TV Extending Screed with tamper and vibrators, this small paver achieves optimum pre-compaction values.

And finally, the excellent price/performance ratio of this small paver is not the least of its attractions. That makes it the ideal choice in towns and cities as well as for landscaping applications. As such it is particularly interesting for many local authority contractors.

Compact, light and manœuvrable

When the site is particularly narrow, short or low, that‘s when the SUPER 800i comes into its own. Its dimensions make it the ideal candidate for landscaping applications as well as for surfacing car parks, farm tracks, cycle paths or footpaths.

The Mini Class paver is also a popular choice for building motorway central reservations or working in underground car parks, low halls, etc. In all these situations, its small dimensions, great manoeuvrability and power are the decisive factor for efficiency.

This highly evolved paver is perfectly equipped to handle even the most difficult conditions. The asymmetrical material hopper, for instance, allows the mini paver to be easily fed with mix in extremely confined spaces.

The applications illustrated here are typical for the VÖGELE Mini Class. The illustrations may also show the predecessor model.

Precision in small spaces

With an outer track gauge of just 1.14m, the paver is ideal for paving between tram lines and in milled strips.

The small clearance width of 1.4m means that even narrow entrances or gates are no longer an obstacle. The paver can pass through tight entrances and is capable of surfacing traffic areas in buildings such as underground car parks without any problem.

Paving up to within 5cm of boundaries

The well-thought-out paver design allows machine-based paving up to within 5cm of boundaries.

The overall height of less than 2m allows paving in low spaces and under canopy roofs.

The wide range of pave widths – from 0.5 to 3.2m – means it can be used in a wide variety of applications, ensuring high capacity utilization of the machine.

Perfect material management

Several feeding options are particularly important when space is narrow and confined. That is exactly what the large material hopper of the SUPER 800i was designed for. It can be conveniently supplied with material by lorry or wheeled loader, depending on how much space is available.

The powerful conveyor, the large conveyor tunnel and the augers adjustable in height ensure that material flows to the screed precisely and in exactly the right quantity.

Several Feeding Options

The large material hopper with separately folding sides is designed so that the machine can always be supplied with paving material in the best, most cost-effective way. Whether the mix is supplied from the front by lorry or from the side by a wheeled loader, the hopper sides can always be positioned as required.

The optional asymmetrical hopper side (left) allows the paver to be supplied with material by lorry even if the feed vehicle is unable to dock centrally in front of the machine, as is the case when paving along walls and other boundaries, for instance.

On the asymmetrical material hopper, the left hopper side can be folded hydraulically. Combined with the possibility of adjusting the push-rollers to the left, this makes it easier for material to be supplied by lorry when paving along walls and other boundaries.

Optimal Flow of Mix

The pavers of the Mini Class come with a powerful material handling system. The capacious material hopper holds an ample supply of mix, while the wide conveyor tunnel permits a high material feed rate. The large auger blades ensure that the material is spread evenly in front of the screed.

Large material hopper
With a capacity of 5.8t, the material hopper of the small paver is configured to guarantee a controlled supply of mix, preventing any bottlenecks from occurring.

Optimum conveyor drive
The arrangement of the conveyor drive at the rear of the machine makes for optimum power transmission, ensuring a high conveying capacity while minimizing wear of paver components. The conveyor is reversible, preventing any spills of material when repositioning the paver on the job site.

Wide conveyor tunnel
The conveyor tunnel is wide enough to guarantee a high material throughput of up to 300t/h.

Large auger blades
With a diameter of 300mm, the large auger blades ensure that the material is spread homogeneously. The height of the augers is infinitely variable by 100mm, even hydraulically on request.

The ErgoBasic operating concept

The ErgoBasic operating concept was developed on the basis of the proven ErgoPlus operating system which is installed in VÖGELE‘s large pavers, but it was tailored specifically to the needs and requirements of our Mini Class paver users.

The aim was to develop an operating system for the small machine that was just as quick, precise and intuitive to operate as the system for the large machines. That makes VÖGELE the only manufacturer to offer a standardized operating concept for all paver classes.

The paver operator‘s ErgoBasic console

Everything at a glance: the functions are arranged in a clear, logical and practical layout that has clearly been inspired by the ErgoPlus operating console. The type of controls and the symbols used are all in line with those of an ErgoPlus console but have been tailored to the functions of a mini paver.

Given the limited number of functions, there is no need for a display. The status of all settings is indicated as a percentage on LED strips immediately next to the relevant functions. LEDs also indicate the set speed for the augers and the compacting systems as well as the fill level of the fuel tank.

Function and status indicators
The function and status indicators mean the operator always has a full control over his machine, even without a display. He can, for instance, read the fill level of the fuel tank directly and identify whether there are any functional faults.

Selecting different operating modes
The function and status indicators mean the operator always has a full control over his machine, even without a display. He can, for instance, read the fill level of the fuel tank directly and identify whether there are any functional faults.

Speed of the augers
In automatic mode, the maximum speed of the augers can be adapted to the pave width separately for the right and left using the plus and minus keys. The set value is displayed as a percentage on the LED strip.

Diesel engine with speed ranges
There are three speed ranges for the diesel engine: MIN, ECO and MAX. The desired range can be set easily using the arrow keys. Many construction projects can be completed at ECO speed. The lower engine speed reduces noise emissions considerably and saves on fuel.

Compacting effort
The speeds of the compacting systems can be set directly on the operator‘s console. The LED strips from 0 to 100% indicate the set speeds for the tamper and vibrators, allowing them to be adjusted immediately as required.

Steering with preselected steering angle
The machine is steered by means of an easy-grip rotary controller which enables the paver operator to manoeuvre the machine precisely even in the tightest spots. For long curves with a constant radius, the desired steering angle can be preselected using arrow keys. The paver stays automatically on the set track until the function is deactivated again, allowing the paver operator to monitor the paving process undisturbed.

The ErgoBasic remote control unit for the screed

The safe and easy handling of all screed functions is a key factor in high-quality pavement construction. That‘s why an ErgoBasic remote control unit for the screed was developed specifically for the operating system of the new SUPER 800i.

Its keypad is laid out logically according to the functional processes. Designed for robustness, it is well able to withstand tough job site conditions. Operation is easy to understand and can be learnt intuitively in a very short space of time, not least because the symbols used in the proven ErgoPlus operating concept were adopted in the design.

The ErgoBasic remote control unit for the screed allows all paving-related functions to be set quickly and easily. That includes direct access to the material handling systems and the sonic sensor for the auger.

There is a remote control unit for each side of the screed. It can either be held in the hand or fixed to the magnetic brackets provided on the left and right of the screed.

All the main paving functions for each side of the screed can be controlled using one of the two handy screed remote control units.

  • 1 - Conveyor, automatic / manual
  • 2 - Horn
  • 3 - Auger, automatic / manual / reverse
  • 4 - Screed floating on / off,
  • 5 - Screed width control, one side
  • 6 - Adjustment of screed tow point rams

Remote control unit for Niveltronic Basic

VÖGELE have also developed an automated grade and slope control system to match the ErgoBasic operating concept: the Niveltronic Basic. Fully integrated into the machine control system, its main benefit is that it is particularly easy to use. There is a separate remote control unit for each side of the screed.

Mechanical sensors and sonic sensors as well as a slope sensor can be connected for grade and slope control. A laser receiver is even available for work on larger sites. Niveltronic Basic automatically detects the type of sensor connected.

The remote control unit comes with all the functions required for precision grade and slope control:

  • 1 - Deviation from specified values
  • 2 - Niveltronic Basic on / off
  • 3 - Setting: Sensor sensitivity
  • 4 - Selecting: Kind of reference (ground, tensioned wire, transverse slope)
  • 5 - Quick set-up
  • 6 - Setting: Specified value
  • 7 - Sensor calibration

Future-proof drive technology

Three main components define the power unit of a SUPER 800i: its modern, liquid-cooled diesel engine, a splitter gearbox flanged directly to the engine and a large cooler assembly.

The driving force in this power pack from VÖGELE is its diesel engine. The four-cylinder engine delivers 55.4kW at 2,200rpm. Yet the fuel-saving ECO mode is sufficient for many applications. And even then, the SUPER 800i still has a full 54kW at its disposal. Moreover, the machine generates even less noise when running at just 1,800rpm.

A large cooler assembly ensures that the power unit always delivers its full output. With innovative air routing and a variable-speed fan, temperatures are always maintained within the optimum range, significantly extending the service life of both the diesel engine and the hydraulic oil. A further advantage is that the machine can operate without difficulty in all climate regions worldwide.

All hydraulic consumers are directly supplied with hydraulic oil via the splitter gearbox. Hydraulic pumps and valves are centrally located, making them optimally accessible for servicing.

  • Machines with the suffix ”i“ in their product designation are not only economical, but also extremely clean. The ”i“ stands for ”intelligent emission control“ and is found in the type names of all machines from the WIRTGEN GROUP equipped with the latest engine technology. Thanks to its sophisticated exhaust gas after-treatment, this engine complies with the strict requirements of European emissions standard Stage 4 as well as US EPA standard Tier 4f.
  • Delivering 55.4kW, the modern diesel engine can achieve optimum efficiency.
  • ECO mode with 54kW cuts operating costs and allows super-quiet operation.
  • The splitter gearbox optimally transmits the power output of the diesel engine to the hydraulic pumps.

A large cooler assembly with innovative air routing is installed for perfect cooling of the engine coolant, hydraulic oil and charge air in all climatic zones the world over. This ensures that the engine can deliver maximum output and helps prolong its service life.

Precision on tracks

Thanks to powerful separate drives fitted into the sprockets of the crawler tracks, engine output is translated into pave speed with no loss of power.

The long crawler tracks deliver maximum traction thanks to their large footprint. This ensures a constant forward speed even when operating on difficult terrain.

Positive tracking when moving straight and accurate cornering due to separate drive and electronic control provided for each crawler track.

Identical service concept

The standardized service concept conceived for the VÖGELE pavers means that servicing is quick and uncomplicated. Large hinged panels provide convenient access to all service points on the machine.

Wear-resistant components also guarantee a long service life.

All hydraulic pumps are located on the splitter gearbox and provide maximum service-friendliness thanks to their clear arrangement and easy accessibility.All hydraulic pumps are located on the splitter gearbox and provide maximum service-friendliness thanks to their clear arrangement and easy accessibility.

AB 220 TV Extending Screed

The AB 220 Extending Screed in the TV version is specially designed for use with the SUPER 800i. The extending screed is conceived to play to the strengths of this Mini Class paver. Not only does it deliver the greatest possible variability, it also meets VÖGELE‘s own quality standards.

With a basic width of 1.2m, the AB 220 TV can be extended hydraulically to a width of 2.2m.

The tamper and vibrator compacting systems enable it to achieve pre-compaction results that are outstanding – and indeed exceptional for a paver of this class.

The pave width can be easily extended further by means of bolt-on extensions.

A system for pave width reduction permits easy, high-quality backfilling even of narrow trenches between 0.5 and 1.2m wide.

Reduction in Width

Once mounted, the system for pave width reduction allows infinite variation of the pave width from 1.2m to 0.5m. This is conveniently handled from the paver operator‘s stand without a need for conversion.

With the system for pave width reduction offered by VÖGELE, the backfilling of trenches or paving in an asymmetrical width along kerbstones or walls is an easy game, even when using joint tape.

With the system for pave width reduction fitted, the screed floats on the mix just as it does when paving in a non-reduced width. This allows the layer thickness to be adjusted via the screed tow point rams or even to be controlled with Niveltronic Basic.

The floating screed not only provides for precise paving results, but also achieves excellent pre-compaction.
