SAFETY

PRECAUTIONS WHEN HANDLING GAS HEATING SYSTEMS


This chapter contains important instructions for the gas heating system on the paving screed
if your paver is equipped with this option.

DANGER

Liquid gas is highly inflammable and burns explosively.Liquid gas is


heavier than oxygen, it sinks to the ground and displaces the oxygen.
This results in a danger of suffocation.
Closely observe the following safety instructions to avoid serious injury
and damage to property.

The gas heating system may only be operated and serviced by qualified and
authorised personnel who have been specially trained in the operation and
maintenance of such systems.

Ensure the complete gas heating system is checked by a fully qualified and
authorized person as follows:
Before using the gas heating system for the first time, ensure that it is correctly
installed and has no gas leaks.
Check the working safety of the system on completion of all maintenance and
repair work.
Check the working condition, function, installation and gas leaks in the system if
it has been out of operation for more than one year.

1-10

Your locally prevailing regulations for checking gas bottles still apply and are not
effected by this chapter.

All gas connections must be checked for leakage and damage.Only use gas
detectors approved for gas systems.Searching for gas leaks with a naked flame is a
deadly peril and listening for escaping gas is not a safe method either. Do not use
the gas heating system if the hoses or connections are porous or damaged.

Only operate the gas heating system in open and well ventilated areas.

Protect the gas heating system from direct sun rays and other sources of heat (max.
50 C). Cover the gas bottles with the canopies supplied with the paver.

Close the valves on the gas bottles by turning them clockwise when the gas heating
system is not in use, e.g. during breaks in paving and when working on the system.
Disconnect, remove and properly store the gas bottles during longer standstill times.

The gas heating system must be switched off during cleaning work.

Track Paver Titan 225/325

SAFETY

Chapter 1

When performing any work on the gas heating system, ensure there are no sources
of ignition within a radius of 10 metres.Do not smoke, do not ignite any naked flames
and do not switch on any electrical appliances within this safety radius (danger of
flashover).

Safely mount the gas bottles on the paver using the supports and brackets provided
and ensure they are secured against rotating or falling over. Only withdraw gas from
the bottles when they are in an upright position.

During operation, the gas bottles should not be allowed to become under-cooled as
this may cause an interruption in the flow of gas. Icing on the bottles caused by an
exceptionally high withdrawal of gas must be allowed to thaw off using warm air or
warm water with a temperature not exceeding 50[C]. Never use a naked flame, red
hot objects or convector heaters to thaw off the gas bottles. Icing must not be
hammered off the gas bottles or removed mechanically in a similar manner.

When replacing hoses, ensure the new hoses and connections are suitable for gas
heating systems and are routed in such a way to protect them from chemical, thermal
and mechanical damage.

The gas heating system may only be operated using a pressure control valve with
integrated leak tester and hose rupture safety control.

Leaky gas bottles must be immediately removed from the danger zone, if this is
possible without submitting yourself to danger and be appropriately marked.

Never operate the gas heating without the ventilation system correctly installed and
keep the ventilation intake and outlet apertures free from blockages to ensure an
adequate natural ventilation.

Fire and explosion precautions must be taken if the heating system is operated in
buildings or areas where explosive gases can be reckoned with. Keep all
combustible objects and cleaning cloths which may ignite away from hot parts on the
heating system.

Parts in the heating system which are subject to wear and deterioration must be
renewed after 8 years at the latest. An exception to this rule is when a specialist
confirms their perfect working condition.

In case of fire, remove the gas bottles to a safe area and keep them cool but do not
subject yourself to danger.

Store the gas bottles correctly:


Fit the cap nut and protective cap to the gas bottle valve.
Never store the gas bottles below ground level (burrows and basements), in
living accommodation and restrooms or in their vicinity and in thoroughfares.
Always store gas bottles in an upright position - even empty bottles.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHEN GAS ESCAPES

DANGER

Proceed as follows if you notice gas is escaping:

Warn other people in the vicinity and instruct them to leave the danger zone.

Immediately close the valves on the gas bottles. NOTE: To close the bottle,
turn the screw on the valve clockwise.

Ensure there is ample ventilation.

Extinguish all naked flames, cigarettes and other sources of ignition in the
vicinity.

Do not switch on any electrical appliances because a flashover to the


switching contact may occur and ignite the gas mixture.

If there is a danger that escaping gas cannot be brought under control or there
is a danger of fire in the area of the heating system, immediately alarm the fire
brigade and try to extinguish the fire yourself but do not subject yourself to
danger. Immediately clear the danger zone of all persons.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHEN THE MACHINE TOUCHES LIVE ELECTRIC


CABLES
When paving, always keep the machine at an adequate safety distance to overhead electric
cables. If work must be carried out in the vicinity of overhead electric cables, then ensure there
is an adequate safety distance between the cables and parts and components on the paver.

DANGER

Proceed as follows if the machine touches live electric cables:

1-14

Remain seated on the operator's seat.

Do not touch any operating controls or any other parts of the machine.

Warn other persons not to touch the machine.

Have the current switched off at source.

Only leave the machine when you are absolutely sure that the damaged cable
is dead.

INSTRUMENTS AND CONTROLS

SCREED HEATING SYSTEM (OPTION)


Paving screeds can be heated by propane gas or Diesel fuel (only for Variomatic screeds)
heating systems.
The operating instructions for the propane gas or Diesel heating system installed on your particular screed are included in the screed's operating manual. There is a separate operating
manual for the temperature controlled gas blower heating system (Thermo-Control).
Strictly observe all locally prevailing directives and laws for operating the heating system on
your paving screed.
Secure the propane gas bottles against toppling over on the paver.
Operating instructions for the propane gas or Diesel fuel heating system can be taken from the
operating manual for your particular paving screed.
The heating gas used should, if possible, be pure propane gas and at ambient temperatures
above 10 C should have a maximum butane content of approx. 50%. Heating gases with a
higher butane content should not be used because they do not develop sufficient vaporising
pressure for the gas burners to operate in a stable manner. At ambient temperatures below +
10 C, the butane content may only amount to max. 30%.
Some of the connections on the propane gas heating system have left-handed threads.These
can be recognised by a groove in all six surfaces on the union nuts.
The paver's scope of supply includes two canvas canopies for the gas bottles. Cover the gas
bottles with the canopies as follows:
1. During all paver shut-downs when the ambient temperature is above 10 C.
2. When withdrawing gas for continuous paving work at ambient temperatures
above 20 C and the gas bottles are exposed to sun rays.
Using the canopies will avoid the gas bottles unduly warming up when exposed to sun rays
leading to a high gas pressure in the bottles.

DANGER

At the end of paving work, close the valves on the gas bottles, the
distributor and on the gas burners.
Before transporting the paver, close the valves on the gas bottles,
remove the gas hose with pressure reducer and fit the protective caps on
the gas bottles.

ELECTRONIC LEVELLING SYSTEM (OPTION)


When using an automatic levelling system you will obtain the best possible surface evenness.
Using a grade control will require a reference surface (kerbstone, adjacent lane or tensioned
levelling wire).
We do not recommend using a levelling system for paving a wearing course if the previous
binder course is smooth and level.
Further information on the application of the optional levelling system is included in a separate

SCREED TENSIONING DEVICE, ASSEMBLING AND DISMANTLING


The screed tensioning device will improve the paving behaviour especially on Variomatic
screeds at large widths. It has a permanent positive influence on the screed's floating behaviour and ensures a positive angle of attack. A support plate (A) prevents the tensioning cylinders on the screed tensioning device from dropping downwards.
We recommend the application of the screed tensioning device on Variomatic screeds at paving widths beyond 7.0 m and on manually extendable screeds at paving widths beyond 10.0
m. The screed tensioning device must always be used on Variomatic screeds at paving widths
of 9.0 metres.

The difference in the mat thickness must not exceed 10 cm. Otherwise the
screed will be distorted and damaged.
Illustration 35

When paving, the tow points must not ride against the upper or lower limit stops. Otherwise,
the hydraulic circuits for hopper open/close and screed raise/lower would no longer function.
If the tow points ride against the limit stops during paving work, the position of the screed towing arms must be altered relative to the paving screed so that the tow points have adequate
space to move between the limit stops. Further information is contained in the operating manual for the screed.
1. Ensure the toggle switch for the "levelling system" (A35) is not switched to
position 1; i.e. position MAN or position AUTO.
2. The tow points on both towing arms are adjusted using the toggle switch (A16)
"RH tow point" and (A37) "LH tow point".

Increasing the mat thickness: Move the toggle switches (A16 and A37) for the RH
and LH tow points upwards in the direction of the arrow until the required mat
thickness is reached.

Reducing the mat thickness: Move the toggle switches (A16 and A37) for the RH
and LH tow points downwards in the direction of the arrow until the required mat
thickness is reached.

Remarks: Alternatively, the tow points can be adjusted on the external


control panel using the button switch for increase mat thickness (B1,
220Page) and for reduce mat thickness (B2, 220Page).

OPERATION

SCREED FLOATING MODE


The correct screed floating mode is an important prerequisite for paving a perfect mat.

WARNING

To avoid accidents, completely lower the screed before switching to the


floating mode.
Illustration 36

1. Place square timbers or paving material underneath the screed. This will set
the screed to the required mat thickness.Add the degree of mix slump caused
by rolling.
2. Move the toggle switch (A29) "screed floating mode" to the "O" position.
3. Move the toggle switch (A31) "screed raise/lower" downwards to lower the
screed onto the timbers.
4. Move the toggle switch (A29) "screed floating mode" to the position "1". The
screed is now in the floating mode.
5. Ensure the control lamp (A30) "screed floating mode" illuminates. If this is not
the case, the screed is not fully lowered and is in the hydraulically blocked
position. An uneven mat would result if the machine paved with the screed in
this position. Therefore, manually lower the screed further downwards.

NOTICE
We advise against starting paving work with a hydraulically blocked
screed and then switching to the floating mode after sufficient material is
forced underneath the screed. Normally, the screed would then not float.

OPERATION

SCREED HEATING, ON / OFF

DANGER

There is a danger of explosions caused by escaping gas. Keep all sparks


and naked flames far away from the gas heating components. Ensure
there is adequate ventilation. If a gas leakage occurs, immediately close
the valves on the gas bottles (turn the valve clockwise because it has a
left-hand thread).
The gas bottles for the screed heating must be safely secured against
falling over and be protected from the sun at ambient temperatures above
20 C (fit the gas bottle canopies).
Paving screeds can be heated by propane gas or Diesel fuel (only for
Variomatic screeds) heating systems.
Operating instructions for the propane gas or Diesel fuel heating system
can be taken from the operating manual for your particular paving screed.
There is a separate operating manual for the temperature controlled gas
blower heating system (Thermo-Control).
Strictly observe all locally prevailing directives and laws for operating the
heating system on your paving screed.
Some of the connections on the propane gas heating system have lefthanded threads. These can be recognised by a groove in all six surfaces
on the union nuts.
At the end of paving work, close the valves on the gas bottles, the
distributor and on the gas burners.
Before transporting the paver, close the valves on the gas bottles,
remove the gas hose with pressure reducer and fit the protective caps on
the gas bottles.

PAVING IN THE AUTOMATIC MODE

WARNING

Depending on the ambient temperature, the hydraulic drives must warm


up for 2 to 5 minutes before starting paving work.
Govern the engine speed with the throttle lever (A38).
Before paving, ensure all protective guards and devices are correctly
installed and fully functional on the paver and screed.
Illustration 37

1. Move the engine throttle lever (A38) to the maximum speed.


2. Move the toggle switch (A13) to the low paving speed stage (L).
3. Turn the steering potentiometer (A26) to the centre zero position.
4. Turn the speed potentiometer (A9) to the required travelling speed.
Remarks: Altering the speed during paving work will alter the compaction
of the paving material and consequently the mat thickness. The speed
selected depends upon the paving width, the mat thickness and the kind
of paving material.
5. Ensure there are no persons in the danger zone around the paver.

released and the paver will start moving.

Push the drive lever (A25) forwards and the paver will travel forward.

Return the drive lever to the centre neutral position to stop the paver.

7. Use the steering potentiometer (A26) to steer the paver.

PAVING MATERIAL PRONE TO SEGREGATION


Experience has shown that material in the area of the hopper wings has a significantly higher
portion of coarse grains. This segregated material should not be paved on its own because
areas of coarse grains would occur in the mat. Close the hopper wings and allow the segregated material to flow onto the conveyors just before a new truck load of paving material is
dumped in the hopper. When doing this, the conveyors remain switched off until the hopper
has been filled with fresh paving material. The fresh paving material together with the segregated material can now be conveyed to the augers. In this way, a mix segregation can be
avoided.
The conveyors should not run empty when changing dump trucks; forin fact, a layer of material
should remain in the hopper.
If possible, the head of material in the auger channel should have a uniform height across the
entire width of the screed. Depending on the thickness to be paved, this is achieved by lowering the augers and removing an auger flight from those areas where there is not enough material. Under certain conditions and especially at the outer screed areas, every second flight
must be removed. In this case we recommend that every second remaining flight should be
mounted offset by 180 on the auger shaft; this will give a uniform load on the auger shaft.
The conveyor and augers must be operated in the automatic mode. The sensors and control
switches must be so adjusted to reach a uniform head of material and the augers are only subject to minor speed alterations.
Run the tampers and vibrators at maximum speed when paving base courses. When paving
wearing courses, slightly reduce the tamper speed to prevent the screed loosing its floating
behaviour on account of a too high compaction.
If the previously mentioned measures do not prevent a concentration of coarse grain in front
of the augers and which reaches to the top of the mat being paved, the rear wall of the basic
machine in the area of the auger outer bearings must be extended downwards by fitting steel
plates or hard rubber sheeting to avoid the coarse grains rolling to the front. If necessary, these
steel plates or hard rubber sheeting must be fitted across the entire width of the screed (these
parts do not belong to the paver's standard range of supply).
Even at higher ambient temperatures, the screed must be permanently heated if material with
a temperature of 150 C and less is being paved. However, try to have the paving material
delivered with a mix temperature of 160 - 170 C.
If mix segregation occurs as an open surface structure in the middle area of the screed when
paving thicker mats, replace the first auger helical on one side with a helical with an opposite
pitch. This will force more paving material underneath the auger drive case and rectify the mix
segregation.

MAT THICKNESS IS NOT CORRECT


The screed's angle of attack must be altered by turning the rear turnbuckles if a significant dif-

3-58

Track Paver Titan 225/325

OPERATION

Chapter 3

ference occurs between the mat thickness set on the paver (value on the tow point mat thickness scales) and the actual thickness of the mat being paved. The turnbuckles are set to a
value of "0" in the factory and increasing this value will achieve a thicker mat.
We recommend that the rear turnbuckles are not adjusted for paving mat thicknesses up to
approx. 10 cm. This means, that the screed's angle of attack will be adjusted by the tow points
to the mat thickness.
Rule of thumb: Value on the tow point thickness scales = 1.5 x the mat thickness.
Further instructions for adjusting the screed are contained in the screed's operating manual.

TOW POINT SINKS DOWN DURING PAVING WORK


Ball cocks are installed on the hose connections on the piston rod side of the levelling cylinders
and with these ball cocks, the cylinders can be blocked against sinking downwards. The ball
cock must be closed if the automatically operated double check valve leaks and allows the
screed to sink downwards at the tow points when paving. The ball cocks must remain open
when paving with an automatic levelling system to control the mat thickness.

CONVEYING THE PAVING MIX TO ONE SIDE


This section describes how to convey a uniform head of material to both sides of the screed
just before finishing paving work even though the hopper only has material on one side. Likewise, additional material requirements on one side caused by changes in the cross section
profile can be compensated by reversing one of the augers.
1. Conveying the paving material with both augers:

to the LH screed side: Move the toggle switch A21 "auger reverse rotation" to the left
(27Page).

to the RH screed side: Move the toggle switch A21 "auger reverse rotation" to the
right (27Page).

to switch off: Move the toggle switch A21 "auger reverse rotation" to the centre
position (27Page).

Chapter 3

OPERATION

PAVING MATERIAL NOT CONVEYED FAST ENOUGH


The auger can be overmodulated if not enough paving material is being conveyed. The auger
will then rotate at maximum speed. For this function, the button B7 for "STOP material flow"
must be pulled upwards (27Page).
1. Rotating the auger at maximum speed:

LH Auger: Keep the button switch B3 pressed on the LH external control panel to
overmodulate the auger (27Page).

RH Auger: Keep the button switch B3 pressed on the RH external control panel to
overmodulate the auger (27Page).

SETTING THE PRESSURE ON THE SCREED ASSIST


If required, a variable pressure between 10 and 50 bar can be applied to the screed transport
cylinders.
This pressure counteracts the weight of the screed and prevents it sinking into paving material
with a low bearing capacity. This option does not effect the screed's floating behaviour; the
screed will bear down on the material with a reduced load.
Illustration 38

The control valve is located inside the LH side door on the paver's rear wall. The pressure is
adjusted as follows (Pos. 1 refers):

Loosen the lock nut, 24 across flats

Turn the Allen screw:


Clockwise to increase the pressure
Anti-clockwise to reduce the pressure

Thereafter, tighten the lock nut.

Check the pressure on the test connection (2).

Ensure the battery cover is removed when connecting jump starter cables and
battery chargers to the battery (avoid an accumulation of battery gasses). Battery
gasses can be ignited to an explosion by sparks.

The battery charger MUST be switched off when connecting it to the battery.

Only use genuine fuses with the specified amperage. Immediately switch off the
paver if problems occur in the electrical system.

Any work on the machine's electrical system and equipment may only be performed
by a trained assistant electrician or a similarly trained person whereby they are
supervised and controlled by a fully trained and qualified electrician. This work must
be carried out in accordance with your locally prevailing electro-technical regulations
and directives.

If required by regulations, the power supply to the paver's sub-system on which


inspection, maintenance or repair work is to be carried out, must be interrupted.

Before starting work, ensure the sub-system, is disconnected and at zero potential
and earthed or short circuited. Furthermore, all live parts and components must be
isolated.

The paver's electrical equipment must be checked and examined at regular intervals.
Faulty parts such as loose connections or charred wiring must be immediately
renewed.

Welding, torch cutting and grinding work may only be carried out on the paver after
express permission has been obtained because this work can cause explosions and
fires.

Before commencing any welding, torch cutting or grinding work, the paver and its
surrounding area must be cleaned and free from all dust and inflammable materials
and the working area must be adequately ventilated (danger of explosions - check
all wiring and hoses for leakage and visual damage). Any damage found must be
immediately repaired. Escaped oil is a fire risk and health hazard.

Hydraulic hoses must be regularly checked and immediately renewed if they are
found to be chafed, cracked, brittle, deformed or have visible bulges, leakages, loose
connections or any other damage which impairs their function or durability.

Never carry out any work on the hydraulic lines when the engine is running and the
system is under pressure. Hydraulic fluid is still under pressure even though the
engine has been switched off.

Before starting any repair work, all systems and the pressure lines to be removed
(hydraulic system, compressed air system) must be depressurised in accordance
with the instructions for the particular components.

Never commence any work on hydraulic hoses and connections until the pressure
has been properly relieved from the system.

MAINTENANCE WORK

CAUTION

The engine must be switched off when carrying out the following
maintenance work.

MACHINE (GENERAL)
Cleaning the Machine

When cleaning the machine and machine components with a hose or high pressure cleaner,
water and other impurities can penetrate bearings, seals and other components in the system.

NOTICE
When using high pressure cleaners, ensure that water or steam does not
penetrate electrical components and control systems.
Do not use any aggressive cleaning solvents which may cause damage
to painted surfaces.
Let the engine run warm after washing the machine. This will allow the
engine components and electrical connections to dry quicker.
Lubricate all grease nipples after cleaning the machine.
Before Cleaning

1. Remove all paving material stuck to the machine.


After Cleaning:

1. Remove all material used to prevent water penetrating the machine.


2. Immediately lubricate all grease nipples.
3. Check all air intakes for deposits of dirt which may constrict the flow of air and
ensure a free and unobstructed air intake.
4. Check all fastenings on the air filter and repair any damage found.
5. Check all hoses for cracks, wear and damage and renew them if necessary.
Tighten threaded connections

1. Correctly tighten all loose nuts and threaded connections found during daily

WARNING

Batteries contain acid which can lead to injuries.


Battery vapour can ignite and explode. Battery acid will cause injuries if
it comes into contact with your eyes and skin.
Do not smoke when checking the battery acid. Avoid battery acid
touching your eyes and skin. Thoroughly rinse your eyes and skin with
clean water splashed with battery acid.

NOTICE
Information on battery upkeep and maintenance is contained in the
engine handbook.
The Diesel engine is equipped with a 28 V three-phase alternator. Due to the characteristics
of the three-phase alternator, special instructions for system with three-phase alternators must
be observed.

Observe the correct polarity when connecting the batteries otherwise the diodes will
be destroyed.

To determine whether a DC dynamo is supplying current, you can lightly touch the
earth. NEVER test a three-phase alternator in this way otherwise the semiconductors will be damaged.

The preexcitation of the three-phase alternator is effected by the battery via the
battery charging lamp (A5c, 27Page). Therefore, a faulty charging lamp must be
immediately renewed to ensure a correct excitation.

Charge the battery

1. The engine and ignition must be switched off.


2. Before disconnecting the battery, all electronic equipment must be
disconnected from the system, e.i. al plug connections must be unplugged.
3. Loosen and remove the terminal clamps before charging the battery. For safety
reasons, first remove the negative ( - ) terminal and then the positive ( + )
terminal.
4. After charging the battery, connect the terminal in the opposite sequence, i.e.
first the positive ( + ) and then the negative ( - ) terminal. Observe the correct
polarity when connecting the terminals.
5. Identification tags with numbers are attached to all ends of the wires in the
cable loom and these numbers correspond to the numbers on the machine's
wiring diagram. A further aid to identification are the colours of the wires
specified on the wiring diagram.
Greasing the battery terminals

1. Clean the battery terminals.


2. Check the terminal clamps for tightness.
3. Apply a thin film of battery terminal grease to the terminals to prevent corrosion.

HYDROSTATIC SYSTEM
Extreme cleanliness is a basic requirement for all maintenance and repair work on hydraulic
systems. Used oil, sand, dirt and metal chippings in hydraulic systems not only impair the
function and service life of the components, they also cause damage and eventually a complete breakdown of the system.
Regularly check the hydraulic system for leakage and tight fitting of all threaded connections.

CAUTION

All work on the hydraulic system such as tightening threaded


connections, exchanging filters, oil changes and renewing components
etc. (with the exception of checking the valve settings) may only be
carried out with the system completely depressurised, i.e. with the engine
switched off. Use clean plastic plugs to close the ends of any hydraulic
hoses or tubing which must be disconnected.
Do not use cleaning cloths or cotton waste to close hoses and tubes.
Illustration 9

When replacing hydraulic pumps and motors, the oil drain case must be filled with clean
hydraulic oil before putting them back into operation. Add oil through the drain case oil
connection (1).
Before putting the system back into operation, we recommend to flush the hydraulic lines; if
necessary, they must be dismantled .
A second possibility is to fit a high pressure filter with a filter mesh of 0.01 mm (10 um) into the
appropriate circuit instead of the hydro motor and filter the circuit for approx. 5 to 10 minutes
(check the filter's direction of flow).

Chapter 4

Feed Pressure Filter for the Travel Drive and Tamper Drive (only for VDT and VDT-V Screeds)

Illustration 11

The hydraulic oil is filtered by the feed pressure filters (3) installed on the pressure side of the
feed pumps. The feed pressure filters do not have a bypass which means that if the filter is
blocked, no unfiltered oil enters the closed circuit.
Instead of a bypass, the filters have integrated over pressure valves which open and allow the
hydraulic oil to flow back to the tank if the difference in pressure between filter inlet and filter
outlet is more than 5 bar.
With an increasing amount of dirt in the filter or with a too high oil viscosity at low temperatures,
the displacement of the variable pump in the main circuit will be delayed or there will be no
displacement at all. As a consequence: the paver's travel drive will lag or the paver will not
travel at all.
If this is due to cold oil, let the hydraulics run warm to reach normal operating temperature. If
this is due to a dirty filter, immediately change the filter cartridge.
Change the filter cartridge for the first time at 125 operating hours and thereafter every 1000
operating hours or at least once a year.

CAUTION

After every filter change, run the Diesel engine for approx. 5 minutes at
idling speed, i.e. max. 800 1/min to build up the feeding pressure.

DRIVE CHAINS AND V-BELTS


When performing maintenance on drive chains and V-belts, look for apparent damage and
renew all faulty parts.
Check at retension the engine V-belts one day after commissioning the new paver. Check the
V-belt tension once again after one week of operation and then at intervals of approx. four
weeks.
The narrow V-belts require tension to transmit power but should not be over tensioned as this
would lead to premature damage on the bearings.
The paver's drive chains must be regularly

checked for sag and retensioned if necessary,

checked for wear (e.g. connecting links and tooth flanks etc.),

cleaned and lubricated.

When checking the drive chain tension, the connecting links, drag links and sprocket wheels
should also be checked for undue wear (damage to the tooth flanks) and renewed if
necessary.

LUBRICATION PLAN
All lubrication instructions contained in this lubrication plan only refer to the basic paver.
Lubricating instructions for the paving screed are contained in the operating manual for the

Park the paver on level ground before checking the oil levels and changing the oil. Always
drain off the oil at operating temperature and catch it in a suitable container.
Observe meticulous cleanliness when greasing the machine. Thoroughly clean the grease
nipple before applying the grease gun.
Slip guides and spindles must be greased or oiled as required especially after cleaning the
paver with grease and bitumen dissolving agents. Use a commercially available multi-purpose
quality grease.
The paver's chain drives must be lubricated once a week. Lubricating work can be done with
an oil can or aerosol can. Apply the lubricant between the link plates of the inner and outer
links. For normal operating conditions, use a quality brand of oil with a viscosity of SAE oils.
Choose an oil to suit your average ambient temperature:

Once a month clean the chain drives with an oil and grease removing solvent; thereafter oil
the chains. At the end of the paving season, thoroughly clean all chains and sprockets and
preserve them with a special chain grease.
Remarks: After lubricating, remove the grease gun nozzle from the grease
nipple by turning the gun clockwise at an angle of approx. 30. This will make
it easier to remove the grease gun without braking off the ball head on the
grease nipple.
Use extreme CAUTION when working in the vicinity of moving parts.
When paving bituminous materials, the conveyor and auger bearings must be immediately
lubricated at the end of paving work. To do this, run the conveyors and augers and apply
grease until it emerges from the cavities. Any paving material which may have penetrated the
seals will be forced out by the lubricant.
Grease points with daily intervals must be lubricated before washing the machine so that the
gaps in the bearings are closed with grease. Grease points with daily intervals must be
lubricated before washing the machine.
Do not direct the jet of water onto the bearings.

Fault

Possible Cause

Fault Clearance

Machine veers to one


side when starting

Current on the solenoids for the


travel drive pumps is not set
correctly.

Offset Adjustment:
With the offset adjustment, the
starting values are calibrated for
the hydraulic pumps on the
travel drive system. If a faulty
function occurs (e.g. sensor
error), the paver will start
moving slowly. In this case,
the offset adjustment procedure can be immediately
stopped by moving the drive
lever or pressing the emergency
STOP button. For this reason,
it is absolutely essential that
the operator remains on the
operator's platform during the
offset procedure (approx. 2 to
3 minutes for each side).
Change the electronics to the
programming mode (Move the
plug-in bridge from X1/115-X1/
116 to X1/116-X1/117).
Start the offset adjustment on
the LH side by moving the drive
lever forwards.
During the calibration, the LH
sensor will flash and will permanently illuminate when the calibration is finished.
Start the offset adjustment on
the RH side by moving the drive
lever backwards.
During the calibration, the RH
sensor will flash and will permanently illuminate when the calibration is finished.
Finalise the offset adjustment
procedure by moving the plug-in
bridge from X1/116-X1/117
back to X1/115-X1/116.
Now start the machine moving
in the paving speed stage.
Repeat the offset adjustment if
the machine starts with irregular
movements.
Contact your nearest service
technician if the fault cannot be
rectified after several attempts
at the offset adjustment procedure.

Only carry out the offset


adjustment at operating
temperature

TROUBLE SHOOTING

Chapter 5

Towing the Paver

CAUTION

It is only permitted to tow the paver with a tow bar at a slow towing speed
of approx. 10 m/min over a short distance to remove the machine from the
danger zone or tow it to a low bed loader.
Ensure there are no persons or objects in the danger zone. Observe your
locally prevailing laws, regulations and the traffic code when towing the
paver. There is a danger of crushing and serious personal injury when
preparing the paver for towing.
Ensure the crawler tracks do not skid. The paver can only be steered and
guided by the towing vehicle if the Diesel engine has broken down.
Before unhitching the tow bar, ensure it is not under tension and the
paver is secured against moving by applying the spring loaded brake or
by wheel chocks.
Due to the hydrostatic travel drive, it is not permitted to tow start the
Diesel engine if the electric starter has broken down. Any attempt to tow
start the Diesel will cause damage to the hydrostatic drive system.

CONSUMABLES

Consumables
Lubrication is a major element of preventive maintenance and has a significant effect on the
working life of the paver. Regularly lubricating moving parts will reduce the possibility of a
breakdown cause by a failure of mechanical components. We recommend the use of
genuine lubricants to achieve an optimum working life and performance of the paver.
Different lubricants are required to lubricate the paver and its integrated assemblies. This
chapter includes a table of assemblies to be lubricated and the lubricant required.
If not otherwise specified, the oil levels must be checked as follows: Park the machine on level
ground and check the level when the oil is cold.
The oil must reach the lower edge of the filling hole on oil check points with a threaded oil level
plug.
If not otherwise specified, the grease nipples are designed according to SAE-STANDARDS.
Lubricate open grease nipples until grease emerges out of the nipple.
Applying excessive lubricant to the grease nipple will not damage the grease nipple or its
assembly. Insufficient lubricant will, however, shorten the component's working life.
If not otherwise specified, lubricate all components without grease nipples (rods, bolts and
levers etc.) once a week with oil. A thin film of engine oil will achieve the required lubrication
and avoid rust. An anti-seizing solvent can be used if rust or corrosion has formed. Otherwise
the component must be cleaned before lubricating.
Worn or damaged grease nipples must be replaced if the grease gun cannot be connected or
the ball in the nipple has jammed.
In addition to the regular lubricating intervals, carry out other inspection and maintenance work
at the same time. This will avoid more serious damage occurring on the assemblies.
1. Before starting maintenance work, clean all threaded connections, caps and
plugs etc with a non-flammable and non-toxic cleaning solvent so that dirt
cannot penetrate the system during work.
2. Drain off all oils at operating temperature.
3. When carrying out lubricating work at the prescribed intervals, check and
ensure that all nuts, bolts and screws are correctly tightened.
4. Make a random inspection of threaded connections and nuts and check
whether they are tightened to the correct torque. If any loose connections are
found, then check and tighten all threaded connections, nuts and bolts.
5. If damage is found during maintenance work, then the machine must be shut
down until the faults are rectified. Notify your local distributor if necessary.
