The Next Generation Of Carlson Front Mount Screed
The Carlson EZV pushes screed versatility to new heights with its unique ability of paving as a hydraulically extendable and a fixed width platform in one. Combined with an enhanced extension support system 200% stronger than the industry’s leading screed, the EZIV, the EZV easily tackles wide width paving projects up to 26’ with exceptional mat quality and minimal flex. The EZV can be mounted to all current 10-foot North American models offered by the major paver manufacturers, as well as able to retrofit to nearly any previous 10-foot North American highway-class paver.
Versatility Like No Other
Contractors demand versatility from their machines, and the EZV delivers with a platform able to pave as a hydraulically extendable and a fixed width screed in one. The exceptional strength and rigidity of the EZV’s class-exclusive extension support system and heavy-duty extension bodies allow contractors to achieve flawless mat quality up to 26-feet without flex. For specialized projects or those that mandate use of a fixed width platform, the EZV utilizes a high strength bolt pattern on the main screed and leading fixed width bolt-on extensions to reach up to 30-feet.
Whereas other screeds in the industry rely solely on chrome rods for strength, the EZV’s 2” diameter chrome rods are tightly fixed to an extruded aluminum frame that provides 200% more strength than the next leading platform, the EZIV. Combined with a single cylinder per extension kept in parallel with the chrome rods even when sloped, adjustable slide block bushings, and enhanced slope plate design, the EZV’s extension support system truly sets itself apart from the field in component lifecycle, mat quality, and elimination of flex at wide widths.
Adjustability For Exceptional Mat Quality
Like all Carlson screeds, the EZV continues to be on the leading edge of simple adjustability for perfect mat quality. Featuring a 26-inch deep, 450 Brinell-rated one piece main screed plate, the EZV offers flatter angle of attack and more screed surface. This translates to longer plate lifecycle and higher mat quality. Enhanced plate lifecycle is paired with easily adjustable, tightly fitted strike offs, innovative deck cone leveling system, fully adjustable slide block bushings, and oversized slope stop, all providing longer wear component lifecycle while holding their adjustments longer.
Elevating Operator Performance
Creating a safer, more productive environment for crews, the EZV continues to set the standard for contractor focus. With its conveniently located integrated LED work lights for night paving, cup holders, 110v outlets for accessories, depth rods and holders, shovel holders, locking tool boxes and legendary Carlson oven, the EZV creates a more ergonomic, comfortable and safer platform to help contractors perform at the highest level.
