Meanwhile, for the submonitor contained in the screed, display: heating temperature settings, TV speed settings and emergency control.
With the new technologies and features embedded in the Sumitomo paver model of HA90C-2, it is expected to become a new choice for national road contractors to support on-site pavement work.
