The Next Generation Commander III’s new design is all about vision, safety, and performance, and is driven by the new GOMACO G+ control system and the new Tier 4 engines.
The Next Generation Commander III features a redesigned frame and operator’s platform with a new pivoting operator’s control console. The frame has been rebuilt to accommodate Tier 4 engines and their cooling packages. The pivoting operator’s console allows the operator to have hands-on control and ultimate visibility no matter what application is being slipformed or what the direction of travel.
For the first time ever, the Commander III will be available with an optional on-board camera as a new device to monitor designated areas of the slipforming process. The camera can be positioned anywhere around the paver and feeds live to the G+ display on the console.
The operator’s platform is now isolated to eliminate vibration. It’s also quieter to work on the platform or around the machine. The Commander III has a new optimized cooling package with the hydraulic fan controlled by G+ to adapt cooling needs to job-site conditions for both a quiet and efficient operation. It has improved fuel efficiency with a power-optimized engine and load-sensed hydraulic circuits. Excellent fuel efficiency combined with an increased fuel capacity allows an uninterrupted day of paving on the project.
The new GBox is on every leg to accommodate improved steering and grade with G+ controls. It’s part of GOMACO’s electronic and hydraulic initiative. The GBox features a new location for the slave controller and proportional valves, reduces hose and wiring needs, eases serviceability and troubleshooting, and provides easy access with a horizontal swing door at ground level.
G+ controls make all of these advancements possible on the Next Generation Commander III, including hydraulic fan speed control, pivoting operating console, the electronic and hydraulic initiative and more. G+ controls will also accommodate telematics for remote engine and machine monitoring. G+ Connect easily interfaces with 3D guidance systems. It’s all part of the power and limitless potential of the exclusive, new GOMACO G+ control system.
