Vögele Super 800 Small Paver Video
Vögele branded box.
Profile view.
Rollers folded down and hopper sides open.
Tiny tracks and track frames.
Good for laying small widths of asphalt.
The Vögele Super 800 Small Paver has a clearance width of only 1.2m and can pave widths between 0.5 and 3.2m.  It can lay up to 250 tonnes of material per hour and weighs 5.9 tonnes.


The model comes in a brightly coloured box and inside it is enclosed between polystyrene trays.  The review model had no defects or missing parts.

The model is complete with no assembly required, and there is no information describing its many features.  It does include a reprint of a brochure about the real machine which is a welcome addition.


This is a very small machine and so is the model.  The rubber tracks are thin but realistic and they are mounted on nicely detailed track frames.  There is a non-functioning spreader auger on the underside.

At the front the hopper belt is represented by the metal casting and the hopper sides are also metal.  There are functioning rollers for engaging the wheels of a discharging tipper truck.

The body is a simple casting with the grilles in the top represented by graphics.  The operator's station has a textured floor and a finely detailed console which is really good.  The hand rails are metal and realistically sized.

The screed has been modelled in a simplified way due to the size but the casting details are very good.

Each end of the screed has control box modelled by a small piece of plastic.


The tracks roll well in a straight line considering their size.

The hopper sides can close in to force material onto the belt, or for transport, and the rollers also fold.

The screed can be raised and lowered, and can be extended on both sides for width.


This is another high quality model by NZG which is nearly all metal.  The paint and graphics are fine.


It is good value as it is a small but finely crafted model.


The Super 800 is another high quality model sponsored by a member of the Wirtgen Group.  Although small, it is detailed and functional and is highly recommended.


The model first appeared in 2007 and has also been produced in the liveries of Ooms and Traunfellner.
  The Ooms and Traunfellner versions were made in a limited edition of 300 models each.
Brochure included.
Underneath view.
Folded small for transport.
Excellent control console.
Material belt is metal.
Three coloured versions: Traunfellner, Vögele and Ooms.
