Paving the way…


The Dynapac SD2500WS, available from Mimico in New Zealand, is a wheeled asphalt paver featuring improved levels of operator comfort, reduced running costs, and lower emission levels.

Rob Storey, director of KRN Surfacing, has recently taken delivery of a new Dynapac SD2500WS paver and is sold on the benefits of Dynapac’s pavers.

“Dynapac is the most efficient, reliable paver and lays a fantastic mat,” says Storey, who adds that he has tested and trialled other brands in the market.

“We get a good support network from Dynapac, and Mimico are now supporting us really well so it’s definitely the one for us to go forward.

“My business partners in England currently own 25 Dynapac pavers. We’re very highly driven and quality is key to everything we do at KRN. Dynapac is the best brand in the market that I believe is going to be a good success in the future.”

Being active in the road construction business requires considerable investment. Every square metre involves an operational cost composed of fixed costs such as interest on equipment acquired, labour costs, insurance, and equipment depreciation, but also variable costs such as expenses for fuel, wear, and maintenance.

“There’s no need for supporting rods for the screed, which makes all Dynapac screeds free floating – a must for excellent paving result,” says Peter White, Mimico’s business development manager.

The Dynapac SD2500WS paver is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine with emission stage IIIA/IV. The power unit offers optimised energy conversion through load-sensitive engine speed control, use of the most efficient pumps, and the most compact final drives, including motors. The cooling system is driven by a hydraulic motor that is thermostatically controlled for efficient cooling. The CAN-BUS system ensures high operational reliability and centralised control.
