„ErgoPlus“ – a new Concept for Handling Pavers

The innovative concept ErgoPlus considerably simplifies working with heavy equipment trough intuitive operations. As a result, it has become possible to reduce the training time for operating staff from 2 days to only 2 hours. Controls clustered into groups according to job site requirements. The new operator control desk on the operator platform is made up of 4 functional modules. The “ErgoPlus” lateral console on screed is also clearly and logically arranged. Here too, push-buttons are grouped so that the most commonly functions can be identified by touch and easily operated at any time.
