  • GOMACO’s Xtreme GT-3600 Curb And Gutter Machine On Display At World Of Concrete For First Time Ever

    GOMACO’s new Xtreme GT-3600 curb and gutter machine will be displayed for the first time ever in GOMACO’s booth in the Central Hall at World of Concrete 2019. The GT-3600 was the first three-track machine to slipform a 24 inch (610 mm) radius, and now, with the Xtreme package on board, tight radius paving is easier and more efficient than ever before. The Xtreme package adds G+ radius software with slew drives, smart-sensored hydraulics, and intelligence to the GOMACO GT-3600.

    The Xtreme GT-3600 slipforms curb and gutter on a cul-de-sac in a new residential development.
     

    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 ever 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. It’s the ultimate in finite and accurate machine control.
