The Benchmark To Which All Others Are Measured
The Carlson EZIV is the industry’s leading asphalt screed for award winning mat quality and wide width ability. Helping contractors to earn multiple Sheldon G. Hayes Awards and other accolades, the EZIV provides contractors a reliable, heavy duty screed platform for commercial, municipal and highway-class applications. Available in 8-foot (2.44m) and 10-foot (3.05m) models, the EZIV can be mounted to all current North American models offered by the major paver manufacturers. The screed can also be retrofitted on to nearly any previous North American highway-class paver, combining the leading performance of the EZIV with your fleet’s dependable workhorse.
Extension Support Second To None
Utilizing a unique single slide extension support system, the EZIV drastically reduces component replacement costs while achieving exceptional rigidity of its extensions. The 2” diameter chrome rods provide fluid inboard and outboard motion while the heavy-duty 6” tubular frame that the rods are firmly fixed to bears the weight and forces on the extensions. Combined with the industry’s largest adjustable slide block bushing for front-mount screeds, the EZIV’s extension support system truly sets itself apart from the field in performance, component lifecycle and mat quality.
Thin Lift Paving Perfection
Adapting to changes in the industry by directly working with highway-class contractors, the EZIV has evolved to become the leader in thin lift paving applications. Featuring an advanced pivot point location, the new center of gravity allows the screed to ride flat on thin lift paving while eliminating nosing over on the bull nose. This feature increases the amount of screeding surface, enhancing the smoothness and ride quality of the mat while maximizing screed plate lifecycle.
Wide Width Ability
With its uncompromising extension rigidity, innovative bolt-on designs and easy installation, the EZIV is able to tackle wide widths up to 22 feet (EZIV08) or to 26 feet (EZIV10). Bolt-on extensions include 12”, 18” and 24” wide bolt-on’s, all standard with state-of-the-art heating elements and Y-cables. Enabling operators to easily set up for wide width applications with its hydraulically adjustable match height and accessibility of additional power, the EZIV simplifies wide width paving while delivering unmatched mat quality.
Adjustments For Perfect Mat Quality
From its innovative deck cone leveling system to the easily adjustable strike offs, the EZIV continues to be on the leading edge of simple adjustability for perfect mat quality. This design concept contributes to the platform’s long component lifecycle, such as the platform’s adjustable slide block bushings and 450 Brinnel-rated one piece screed plates. Coupled with new enhancements to the platform, including oversized slope adjustment, pre-strike off lock outs, and pull pins for lead crown adjustment on the fly, the EZIV provides contractors simplified adjustments for achieving award winning mat quality.
Elevating Operator Performance
Creating a safer, more productive environment for crews, the EZIV continues to set the standard for contractor focus. With its conveniently located cup holders, 110v outlets for accessories, depth rods and holders, shovel holders, clip board holder and legendary Carlson oven, no other screed can match the attention to the needs and wants of contractors like the EZIV.
