Volvo WheelED Paver PF161

Volvo Construction Equipment is different. It™s designed, built and supported in a different way. That difference comes from an engineering heritage of over 175 years. A heritage of thinking first about the people who actually use the machines. About how to help them be safer, more comfortable and more productive. About the environment we all share. The result of that thinking is a growing range of machines and a global support network dedicated to helping you do more. People around the world are proud to use Volvo. And we”re proud of what makes Volvo different- More care. Built in.

The Volvo PF161 is a mid-sized, wheel-mounted paver / finisher utilizing Blaw-Knox technology, and is capable of placing bituminous base, binder and surface course mixes, cement- or lime-stabilized sub-based and graded aggregate.
