Introducing the new GOMACO IDBI attachment... an independent unit providing dowel bar insertion behind the paver –


• Independent attachment is self-contained, self-powered, and inserts transverse joint bars in pavements up to 16 feet (4.88 m) wide.

• IDBI powered by its own engine

• Crane with rechargeable wireless remote control has 21 feet (6.4 m) of reach and 6500 pound (2948 kg) lifting capacity.

• Outriggers on the attachment have 48 inches (1219 mm) of stroke and can be hydraulically lowered and placed on the ground to support the full weight of the IDBI as it is attached to or detached from the paver. The outriggers are also used to raise the unit so a trailer can be backed underneath for transport.

• CAN cable connects IDBI’s controls to controller on the Commander III and allows the two systems to communicate.

• Bar-loading tray accommodates dowel bars ranging in size from one to 1.5 inch (25-38 mm) in diameter and from 18 to 20 inches (457-508 mm) in length.

• Has the new adjustable-height bar extractors, and a patented bar tray for easy bar spacing and width changes.

• Hydraulically telescoping leg pivots on the rear of the paver allow the machine to achieve sufficient length to mount the IDBI to the paver. It also allows the legs to be retracted to meet shipping requirements or to pave without the IDBI.

• New piston-style legs utilize a round inner tube and a keyway for steering control.

• Insertion forks designed to reduce amount of scarring and vibration enhances consolidation of concrete around bars.
