The Gomaco GT-3600 curb and gutter machine is now available with the company’s Xtreme system. It was the first three-track machine to slipform a 610 mm radius, and now with the Xtreme system on board, tight radius paving can be performed more easily and efficiently. The Xtreme system adds G+radius software with slew drives, smart-sensored hydraulics and intelligence to the Gomaco GT-3600.
Xtreme steering and ultimate intelligence has been added to each of the GT-3600’s three tracks and includes rotary-sensored slew drives, sensored all-track steering and all-track positioning, and smart hydraulic cylinders. The Xtreme GT-3600’s tracks can now rotate further than before. The smart cylinders allow the G+ control system to know the exact position of all three tracks so it can make steering adjustments as needed.
The G+ radius software allows the operator to programme the size of the radius into the controller. G+ calibrates and manages all the aspects of travelling around the radius, including track angles and individual variable track speeds. As the Xtreme GT-3600 approaches the radius, with the values already dialled in, the operator activates the radius programme, and the machine slipforms around the radius. The individual track speed control provides smooth machine travel around the radius. The G+ control system also easily interfaces with any of the major 3D guidance systems for the same smooth control.
In addition, a smart hydraulic cylinder is utilised for Intelligent offset when telescoping and sideshifting the mould mounting system. The smart cylinders provide G+ the ability of repeatable mould offset. The trimmerhead and mould have independent vertical adjustments as well for raising and lowering to work around jobsite challenges.
The Xtreme GT-3600 also has an enhanced cooling package with a hydraulic fan controlled by G+. This G+ adapts the cooling needs to individual jobsite conditions for a quiet and efficient operation. Fuel efficiency has also been optimised and combined with an increased fuel capacity for an uninterrupted day of paving. Plus, the Xtreme GT-3600 is available with Gomaco Remote Diagnostics (GRD) for machine troubleshooting, diagnostic reviews, software updates, and more.
