Figure 7. 24 Speed Transmission-Manual Shifts
The paver transmission will permit movement in either forward or reverse directions at 24 different speeds ranging
from 11 to 336 feet per minute. The four highest speeds (153 thru 336 FPM) are for travel only, not for paving! The top
travel speed at full throttle is 4 miles per hour (aprox.) All movement is accomplished with the engine either at IDLE
speed or FULL throttle (2000 RPM). -There is no other engine speed adjustment.
The transmission has three shift levers (See Figure 7)..
1. Direction Lever Two positions: Forward, Reverse
2. Range Lever Four positions: 1st (Low Speed), 2nd, 3rd, 4th (High Speed)
3. Speed Lever Six Positions: 1st (Low Speed), 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th (High Speed)
By selecting combinations of shift lever positions as shown on the Speed Selection Plate (Figure 8) the paver
speed is determined by the operator. The Selection Plate decal is located on. The top surface of the engine cover for
An electrical system limit switch is operated by a shaft extension from the Direction Lever gearbox. When the
direction lever is shifted into REVERSE, the switch contacts are opened so that the material feed conveyors and the
screed vibrator units cannot operate when the paver is moving in reverse.
WARNING! Do not stand in the hopper to shift the paver transmission levers.
This is dangerous, due to the possibility of slat conveyor movement.
